Eurosima rock'n roll party!

Waterman's ball 2010,

The annual European surf industry gala dinner took place last Friday, October 1st, 2010 in a new location, the Quiksilver Campus in Saint-Jean-de-Luz, France.
Organized by 
EuroSIMA, the European boardsports industry manufacturers association, the Waterman’s Ball aims to federate the boardsports industry and raise funds to promote ecological and environmental organizations.
It was a rock’n’roll attitude this year with an even more festive Waterman’s Ball. The 400 attendees – business leaders, institutions, celebrities, surfing legends – were invited to follow the glam rock “Black & White” dress code, and be imaginative and fun!
It was also an appropriate opportunity to hold the 
EuroSIMA Industry Awards ceremony honoring and celebrating companies, athletes and personalities for their outstanding contribution to the development of the boardsports industry in Europe.
A privileged moment for one and all to meet in a laid back environment, and reinforce the links between the actors of the surf industry. 

First solid swell of October. :)

Good training for Hawaii to use some bigger boards!

Back to france

Hey there ,
On my way back from Brasil , I did a stop to Cap Ferret in Gironde up to Lacanau for doing the french cup. 
I was so jet lag and the waves were really hard ,and solid.. but I get lucky in final and finaly won the event! So no regret to stop there :) 
By the way : Congrat to all the girls they did a good job in really hard condition! 

 Last week was a really busy week , but I had a such good time .

I gave surf lessons to few Autist kids, and its an amazing experience! they have so much love to give! It was really a  huge challenge to teach them how to surf but how good is it to see them smiling and have stars in the eyes when they catch a wave! That's make me so happy to share my passion with them and with the ocean they can escape the handicap for few hours!  It's magic!  And that's remind me why I love so much surfing! "Surf" its really a therapy!

I am still a little bit jet lag , but tomorow (monday) i am back on my training ,surf ,train, swimming ,etc..

 French Championship in biarritz 23th-october
 6 stars in Haleiwa ,Hawaii 11th-of november

Reunion Island june 2010

Hi there! June was suppose to be a relax month at home..
But Actually I am kind of confuse about my "home" Where is my real home? Should we call home where we use to leave or where you're heart is? I am feel like I am from everywhere and in a same time from nowhere.. But something I realised this year , When I'm feeling "sick home " ,I think about this little rocks in the middle of the Indian ocean.. Well of course I really Enjoy to be in France and see my friends and family ! But Reunion Island is my favorite place to be in this world!
I like the lifestyle there, the waves, the sunrise,the sunset, the food,my special and lovely friends !
I like to wake up early and to jump in the water with my sleepy head , and get barrel! I love to stay all day in the clear water with the sun burning my face! 
I love to cruse under water between set,and watch my favorite fish " perroquet"cruising between the reef . And when i go out the water in the end of the day,I just enjoy an "apero sunset" with my dodo! And then ...i just have to sleep and start an other magic day! Woohoo! Life its just simple and lovely there.. I like the feeling of freedom to be in the middle of the ocean.. Far away of everything! that's open my mind .. bizarrely! I find my heaven! But shut!!! don't tell anyone.. Just enjoy some photos from my friend( Mathieu Ducros)

Ps : stay tuned an other post coming soon with more photos From Matt, and Armand.
And also a video editing by Falling angels prod coming soon...

First week in Bali

31 mars 2010

Selamat pagi! ( good morning)
Here we go ! Bali… Sounds like heaven!
Since I am kid … I am not account how many time I heard peoples talk about Bali.. Like Bali is the paradise for surfing , for meet nice peoples with a beautiful soul!  And for be honest After a week here..I am totally agreed!
 I don’t want to be too much.. But really for surfing its really awesome!
We stay in Pecatu right after dreamland! We find the perfect spot, for only 200k per night for two persons with breakfast included!
Its big house kind of a little cattle, with swimming pool, fitness room ,huge bedroom ,etc,  and we are by ourselves!
I mean I forget Yummy ! He’s so nice. He just here for check around if we need something and clean after us.. but he ‘s so kind  .. so we try to be the most tidy as we can! J
This week we surf in 3 differents spot;
Uluwatu ( a lot) , Greenball , and Serangan ( solid 6 ft)
We also visit the Uluwatu temple, saw the cultural Hindu’s dance ,
Visit the Ganasha gallery (art gallery).
And cruise around with our motorbike.. Actually we explore a such good places with it.. Was kind of like our motocross! ;)
What else.. Oh yes I broke my leach in Ulu.. on my first waves yesterday ..With a huge current and lost my board in the cave..With the go pro on it! ( desoler cafrine tu lis ca…hahha! ) Was an expensive session for me.. umm “c la vie”.. like we said in French.. Just shame cause the memory card was full! So I lost a precious images. Anyway.. its all in my mind.. and nothing can change that!
That’s it for now!  Next week I am gonna post our bali’s adventure…
Stay tuned!
Bagus bagus!
