A busy month

Jun 15

Not so much time to add any news theses last weeks.

After the first event of the year in Korea where I finished at a great 29 place… over early on the first round and took a rob on my fins on race number 3.

So i used my 2 discards and it was hard to came back after… I am not looking for excuses but I was pretty pissed off.

On the last day I made a mission to be in time to the french second stop of Aff tour…

I had to fly total 16 hours + put out of the airport 8 bags alone + 5 hours driving with broken one tires + rigging in 5 minutes for being in time in saint malo, France for the start of the second race of the day. Thanks to discard I am still 4th on the national ranking (one point to the second)

Then I came back to Marseille for around 10 days where I organized more or less all he gaatra/tabou 2011 photoshoot! it was really interesting and nice to work on it but I was dead after it! With my friend Ross Williams we prepared together all the gear (15 boards, 20 sails) every days.. We sailed 5 hours a day to catch the best action pics for each products!

Then I was in my home spot for a race during the week end, no wind expect 2 funny races, I was leading the second one and they canceled 10 meters before the finishing line, obviously it was the right decision to take… only julien quentel and were planning after the last mark…

Straight after I drove to Costa Brava for the second stop of Pwa. It was a long event with only one round and half done. I found some speed and was on the first looser final when a terrible start with micah sitting on my board. I finished 18.

I also tested some new tabou manta proto for next year.

I am now at home for one month before the third pwa event in Canarias island.

Here are some pcitures of this last busy month…

Elles sont là! les nouvelles voiles compactes de chez gaastra en 4 lattes (5 au delà de 5 mètres).

Personnellement ça a completement changé ma façon de naviguer. Plus de jus et nerf dans les mains sans pour autant avoir une voile camion dans les bras.

On est actuellement en plein shooting du matos 2011 pour Tabou/Gaastra. Beaucoup de travail, de préparation de matériel, d’heure passées sur l’eau et la route mais cela en vaut la peine le soir lorsque l’on regarde les photos.

J’espère pourvoir souffler un peu avant la prochaine étape de coupe du monde dans 5 jours et la transjai de ce week end car je sens que mon corps est à bout.

J’ai enchainé les events avec qui plus est, un début de saison assez dur en Corée et une étape à Saint Malo pour le championnat de france, ou après avoir loupé la première manche (avion) j’ai limité la casse pour rester en 4 ème position avant la finale.

1 point me sépare du second donc tout est jouable!
