March 2013

Full Name: Sarah Hébert

What are your best features?

My laugh it sound really special, some would say ridiculous! Life is better when you smile 😉

4/5 How you going to make us smile then?

Where are you from?

New Caledonia, a french island in the west part of Pacific Ocean. I’m born there and then we’ve been traveling 11 years on a boat with my family.

5/5 Wow, space for a passenger or two?

What is work?

Work to me means, realise your dream. After 10 years of slalom and formula world competition, I’m now an adventurer and explorer. crossing the Atlantic with my windsurfing gear was a first step, I’m now working on a 3 year project that will take me to Amazonia with my SUP and crossing the Atlantic alone on a sailing boat taking part of the famous french race The “Route du Rhum”. Also I’ve a sport journalist for 3 years on Wapala TV.

5/5 Umm wow again! Sounds like this girl has got is sussed!

What waterspouts do you do?

Windsurfing my first love, SUPing, kitesurfing, surfing, sailing, swimming.


What is your most memorable achievement in watersports?  Winning the European Championship in 2006 two months after my implantation was a fantastic moment. I’m living with an implantable defibrillator since 7 years, and it hasn’t change anything in my life except the fact that I take this opportunity twice!

3/5 Fingers crossed for no more medical emergencies then!

What should a guy do to impress you?

My ideal guy could be a gentleman farmer, good windsurfer, artist, funny and generous. But nobody need to impress me, I’m just curious to learn about others life.

2/5 A gentleman? That’s most of us out the window  then. 

What makes a waterspouts guy a good boyfriend?

It could not be otherwise. My passion takes the major portion of my time, my life, so if I wan’t to share it,  it’s better if the guy knows how to swim! 😉

5/5 Swim, yes! Just about out of our arm bands now. 

What qualities would your perfect man have? To be happy and funny is for sure the most important. Positive attitude.


What do you like about being in a male dominated sport?

Relations are really simple with guys. And when you finally found a water girl, she is just like you, enjoying and keeping things simple. They is more and more girls on the water, boys are nice to us, so I don’t see any inconvenience of practicing a male dominated sport.


What’s the wildest thing you have ever done?

Windsurfing alone on the Atlantic ocean, with no land in sight, only waves… A strong sense that I will probably never feel again.

5/5 Sounds incredible and pretty damn wild too.
