"Growing up on a small island, surrounded
by coral reef, as well as all sorts of colourful fishes, graceful
stingrays, curious turtles, smart dolphins and sharks, the ocean has
become a second home to me. When I was a child, every opportunity I had,
every day, every hour, I wanted to spend it in the ocean. I have swam
with sting rays countless times, and I will never get over their grace
and beauty in the water. Dolphins will never cease to amaze me with
their smart, curious and playful mind. My dad took my family and I on
our boat every sunday and we roamed the sea, in search of empty
paradise. My brother and I spent hours diving, swimming, and exploring
the water and all its treasures. One day, we came upon a whale, and as
we jumped in the water, my heart skipped a beat. The enormous animal was
right next to me, observing me with tranquility. I felt so small. My
chest started vibrating when it started singing. It was one of the most
amazing experiences of my life. Through surfing, my love for the ocean
became stronger and deeper. All I need is being in the ocean to resrouce
myself, to be happy, to be in sync with mother nature. To feel free.
As a child, dreams and reality was blurred. My dreams were alive under water.
I am lucky to say that my playground was
the ocean. I want my future children to feel the same way, to be amazed
by the beautifulness of our oceans and marine life, and believe in it’s
It was really chilly during the morning when showing some severe action at Roxy Pro France, was absolute awesome. So impressed by the girl , the tide went low and you could see that the current was strong as hell...still they manage to get some fantastic rides...!
