2016 – PORTUGAL – Competing and cruising


During the three steps of 2016 APB  Bodyboarding World Tour in Portugal, I decide to travel with my family on a camping-car.
We spend one month cruzing together Malennhy, Oliver and I, on the Portugal coast between Sintra, Nazaré and Viana.
Usually I leave my home just to go for a contest. But in Septembre 2016, I chose a new package. I vote for sports, competing, driving, camping, cruzing, training ,lifestyle and family.
It is a very different way that makes you feel balanced, relax and focused.


Portugal is an incredible place for surfing, with hudge beachbreaks and a big riders community.
I enjoy empty waves on vast beaches, with fresh water and big pleasure and we meet nice people overthere too.
If you want to spend beautiful moments of freedom, natural life and free surf in good conditions, Portugal is really the ideal experience.


According to competitions, my results were not so high  (Top 9 in Sintra – Top 5 in Nazaré). I enjoy the Viana event, with my final with Ian Campbell, then I finish Top 2.
Sometimes, your body and mind need something else than big results : harmony, discovery, liberty and fancy moments as a family as well as a competitor.
As I come back to Gran Canaria,The Fronton King is in my sights and  I want to keep my crown… The 2016 APB WT is not over yet.

Bodyboarding spirit is still in action. Ever.


2015 – TRIP IN INDONESIA – Pictures

Indonesia – Bali & Sumbawa – June 2015


In early April 2015, I spend 5 weeks travelling and training by myself in Australia. When June is coming, I am really happy to see my familly flying from Canary Islands to meet me in Bali.
I fly to Denpasar from Sydney to meet Magdalena and Oliver who land on after a long trip flying from Las Palmas. We stay for one week in Bali to relax. After that, we go to Sumbawa to score a good swell. We are really lucky as it is not too crowded and the waves are pumping!

My friend Sylvere Tanguy makes many footages in extreme conditions and we have been working on a super video MOZ in INDO – video


Local people a peaceful, welcoming and it is a very interesting experience to share their lifestyle for a while. We discover smiling and joyfull families living by the seaside, most of them fishermen and growers.
Indonesia is such an amazing country with perfect waves… But the bodyboarding culture still really poor so it is time to change that and to make local people realize how fun bodyboarding is.

Thanks to Sylvère Tanguy, Ephrem and Elements Prod for the pics.


2015- My daily routine during my trip in Australia

A resourcing trip in Oz

Australia, NSW – May 2015

In May as the winter swell is coming in South hemisphere, I leave my training residence in Gran Canaria to fly to Sydney.  I am traveling in solo, for one month in the middle of Mother Nature in New South Wales. No car, just my feet and nice drivers picking up around there.
I enjoy a mix of opportunities to ride many secret spots and the warm welcome by Glen Thurston and his family.

I begin a good job with Agent eighteen signing my new contract for wetsuits.
I appreciate the very good conditions for training, physical and mental balance, with endless surf sessions in the middle of nowhere. I should say in the middle of hidden paradises… with top leveled riders full of daring and talent.
So long Aussies, I will soon be back. Thank you for all the positive energy and spirit you give to me ever.
I am sure that you will inspire me on the new 2015 World tour.
