"I'm really happy to win the 2010 season, because I am following the KPWT since 7 years, and I have always been at the 3rd place... For me, every year has been fantastic, and I have seen along the years the evolution of kitesurfing. Competing also gave me the opportunity to open my mind, to visit a lot of wonderful places, and to learn a lot...
So I really want to thanks my main sponsor Kiteloose, my agents Xavier Meignen and Emmanuel Aragon, Frédéric Gravoille from the KPWT, and also all my family and friends that are supporting me since the beginning.
See you next year. Peace and Love !"
