Estelle Barre in Action

Full Name: 

Estelle BARRE

What are your best features?

My smile, I laugh all the time, and my skin because I have tanned skin even in winter; I don’t know why but my friends are jealous!


Where are you from?

I was born at Paris but I have lived in the South of France since I was 7. It’s a better region for windsurfing because forecast is always good! 300 windy days during the year!  What else do you need?

5/5 A spare room so we can too experience these 300 windy days?


What is work?

I’m an Osteopathy student during the week and a semi-professional windsurfer during the weekend. I like this life, even if it’s not easy because of many competitions and exams.

5/5 Wow. A hard worker, hard racer and Estelle can fix our broken windsurfing bodies. Score.










What watersports do you do?

I love all watersports but windsurfing is the best one! I like surfing, wakeboarding, SUP and (the summer only) jetskiing.


What is your most memorable achievement in watersports?

When I won (First Girl) DEFI WIND 2013 because it’s the biggest windsurf event in the world and it happens at my home spot of Gruissan.

This year, there were more than 850 competitors on the same start line! It was just an amazing experience and feeling… you have to do at least once in your life.

5/5 Sounds very tempting.

What should a guy do to impress you?

If he wants to impress me, he should do windsurfing! He should go faster than me or do better moves and higher jumps. I like when things are extreme and when a guy impress you, it’s so sexy!

3/5 Not quite sure we can live up to these sort of expectations!


What makes a watersports guy a good boyfriend?

His mind! Because he feels like doing the same things like surfing, traveling, have fun and can give me advice on other watersports.

And, a watersport guy doesn’t often speak  about football… Damn football!

5/5 No more explanations of the offside rule then?










What qualities would your perfect man have?

He can make me laugh, it’s the best quality! I don’t try to meet a perfect man but if he’s sporty, has muscle, likes windsurfing, and he can cook, he has a good level!

3/5 That’s quite a list. Will have to dig out the Jamie Oliver cook book we think! 


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

It’s cool, the guys are very nice and funny but without girls, it’s boring! With the french windsurfgirls, we have a new association: WAW (We Are Waterwomen) The WAW association’s intention is simple: show that there are windsurf girls in France! We’re friends band that have a good time together on the water and at the beach. We’ll set up many events to join together for fun and share our passion. We give all profits in aid of humanitarian organisation like UNICEF, Sidaction, etc.

5/5 Who’s up for a trip to France?


What’s the wildest thing you have ever done?

Last summer, during French Championship, there was no wind and we went to jump of a cliff, 15 meters! And just after we discovered a submarine cave, it was amazing moment! We had to dive under the water to go out of the cave.
