After nine years surfing El Floppo on IBA then APB Tour, with a second place in 2010, I eventually conquered this fabulous wave that is my favorite one on the World Tour. I have spendt nine years, year after year, discovering this powerful slab, these strong and solid waves, the endless swell. Nine years enjoying the big and opened heart of Chilean people.
The 2014 final against PLC has been an incredible duel and the talent of Pierre-Louis forced me to do my best to finish the job. I am so happy and proud to raise the trophy. I was lucky to surf in such conditions, with such a good friend and rival and so big conditions.
Que Dios le bendiga a Chile !
Arica te quiero…
Never give up, always push up your limits.
