It was a while since I don’t post here. Sorry for this!
This last month I was really busy with The french Aff event in Corsica, a photoshooting in Egypte and a speed event in Leucate (France
I am now at home for 10 days before to fly To Korea for the second stop of the Pwa world tour.
First i was in Corsica and I am frustrated because we simply didn’t race in slalom! Ok, there were some wind but in slalom I was on  vapor 7,1 with manta 69, not my smallest gear and they can’t valid a single race… it is a shame. When I was young i was in love when I rode mag report from the french tour when riders did slalom in 55 knots in Gruissan or surfing monster wave of 5 meters in la Torche… Now the tour is not a professional tour but an Amateur one… I know it is not easy to organize vent but everybody should be as proffessional as we try to be.
It was the same for doing the double elimination in wave: too dangerous… i was with my da-curve quad 91 and iq 4,7… hard core condition with 2 meters waves for sure…
I don’t want to be bad with the tour because I love to do it and there is a really good level betwen rider, so this is perfect for improving our level but sometime organisers and race directors need to be simply good on what they have to do!

After This I was 10 days in Egypte; what a beautifull place for chiling! Thanks to Wind and Sport away for organizing it.
We have done pictures for all next Wind issue for teaching the moves.
We also done some kite on the lagune and diving on the reef.
Then I go directly to Leucate for a sick speed event.
It was the first speed event there for me, I remenber in 2001 when I was looking the boys doing the event on the beach. It was amazing to see them doing the 500 meters at full speed.
And now I do the run myself! I did the second best run in windsurf with 39,83 knots after A.Albeau (40,40).
I am pretty happy about this because there was a great level on the water. The last race were done on 15/20 knots, not really speed conditions but sometimes again organisers want to valid more and more event if we have already a nice and fair result…
During the last day, wind was super light so I sailed in 9,3 Vapor and Manta 85 wit a maxi 60 foot trimaran, it was great and pictures from helicopeter also.

See you soon
