Homebase: Lac Leman / la Gouille du Rosel
What are your favorite spot(s):
My favorite spot is somewhere lost in the Mediterranean, where translucent water takes you into wild landscapes between dreams and reality. I enjoy walking along the cliffs where the waves explode against the rocks. Here is the very description of my secret spot.
Your craziest, best, funniest, or most adventurous ride ever:
One of my craziest rides was when I took my dog out to sea with me for a via Ferrata on a rocky outcrop far from the coast. There was a headwind, side waves, in the end, I was fighting for 1h30 against the sea.
Other hobbies when you’re not on the water:
Climbing, Slackline, Fitness, Mountainbiking, Trailrunning
What I Do
Your goal in 2022:
Participate in the ICF Stand up paddle worlds in Poland in Gdynia. And learn new techniques to improve my performance with the champions.
Tell us about a personal achievement:
My second place in the 2021 Swiss sprint championship was incredible. I had never done an official sprint race, and I absolutely loved it. Having to give the maximum of performance over 50 meters with two buoys was a magnificent experience. It was extremely exciting to witness. Of course, there was stress but control and concentration remained essential. This was a nice challenge to overcome.

Anything you want to let the world know:
Stand Up Paddling is not just a hobby, but a real sport of endurance and technique. You need to do a good analysis of the water and the wind conditions. Only the km can make us perform. It is a sport to discover magnificent landscapes that allow us to discover inaccessible places and to explore them.
