Local Break: Habitat 67
Favorite Break: Biarritz was pretty amazing. Best ride of my life by far, head high Laguna beach at Brooks st.
Wants to surf: Munich! I would have loved to surf the Eisbach. Can’t wait to go back to California. Also Ireland is calling me.
Next Road Trip: Probably back to Cali. Love Cali.
-Frenchy’s Custom. 6’2″, Retro Rocket, twin fin, half moon tail. Rails are sharp for river conditions and glass is doubled up in impact areas. This is one hard core riverboard.
-Home made 5’10” shortboard. Eco friendly Bamboo Fabric, it’s sweet.
-Santa Cruz Pumpkin Seed, 6’8”. It’s sweet.
-10′ SUP. Homemade, it’s awesome.
-6’4″ fish. Cocoa beach surf co. Nice Fish shape.
Born and raised in Montreal. (I’m a West Island kid from Pointe Claire) I’ve always loved water sports and swimming so surfing was a natural thing to try for me.
I tried out surfing in 2004 near Lagos, Portugal while I was on my Europe trip that summer. When I got home, my buddy showed me river surfing and I’ve been trying to get to Habitat whenever I can ever since.
Favorite Break: Probably Lagos but I attribute that largely to the fact that it was the first time I experienced the rush of some decent sized waves and that day ended up being one of the best days ever in my 24 years.
Next Road Trip: Wherever Chris will drive me! Haha, I don’t have a car and have no plans to get one for now so I go wherever I can to catch some waves.
Other Activities: I’m passionate about photography so I snap pictures wherever I go. Surf photography would be a great experience but those underwater vacation cameras just don’t cut it.
