For the next three months I am a research assistant within the Fisheries, Aquaculture and Marine Ecosystem division of the Secretariat of the Pacific Community. Then I’ll do the American Windsurfing Tour.

5/5 The AWT….with fellow babes including Sam Bittner and Tatiana Howard? Could think of worse places to be.

Windsurfing! Or stand up paddling, or surfing. Sometimes I go fishing with my father and my brother Thomas, I also love to play the piano and the guitar.

Does a windsurfer make a good boyfriend? 

YES! I can’t be with someone who does not love the sea as I do, or he would think I am crazy.

What’s the wildest thing you have ever done?

Longboard skateboarding the hill Ouen Toro by night when I did not even know how to stop.

Are wetsuits sexy? 

They can be, after crashing on the reef… lol

3/5 Crashing on the reef? That we can manage!


Finally, you tell your boyfriend you are going sailing for a quick hour. You come back 4 hours later. What do you say to him? 

« Mi amor let’s make love ! »
