i just come back from my last snowkite trip of the season, and it was an amazing trip !
I was in the French Alps from the 21st to 24th of March, and the powder was still amazing, also the day are longer so there is more time to ride !
How cool is that to ride on snow with warm temperature, march is definitly the best month for snowkiting !
During those 4 days i had the chance to ride 4 different spots (Le Richard, la Pyramide, la face sud, et la ruine), all those spots are located at the "Col du Lautaret".
I was there to compet at the French snowkiting race Championship finals, and i managed to take the 1st place, pretty stoked about this result ! (event's video coming soon on this report).
So here is my last 2013/2014 snowkite's season video, this season as been really really good, and i already can't wait to put my feet on my NeverSummer snowboard for the 2014/2015 season !!

it's been a long time i didn't put some snowkiting stuff on my blog, so here it is !
This year i had a very good health compare to last year, no more breathing problems, now i breath very well and it's with a lot of passion and energy that i manage to won the French snowkite freestyle Championship, and took the 2nd place at the World freestyle snowkite masters !
I spent 2 months there, the first 3 weeks i organised a SuperKiteDay camp with my Flysurfer and SKD team mate "Abe", all our guest were super cool, we had all some very good times !
I spent the rest of the time chilling and riding hard with my bros "Abe" and "Sam", and thanks a lot Sam for your hospitality and the super good times with you dude !
I had enough time to film some very good stuff, i edited few videos, let's watch tem ;)
Have a cool winter season, and see you soon on the water !
Enjoy the ride ;)

And i finshed my snowkite season with a super nice session in beautifull secret spot with a special girl…
Just one word to finish this snowkite season : Freedom !
as you know, on the 19th-20th October took place a super awesome KiteLandBoarding event in the Netherlands called the Flymasters.
Flysurfer Kiteboarding, MBS and Kite-Freaks organised it very well, and we had epic wind conditions about 20 to 25 knots!
The Kite-Freaks built some sick kikers and sliders specially for the event, the kiker's shape was very nice, we were able to do some big hooked and unhooked trix on it!
We were 21 riders to compete, coming from the UK, Germany, France and the local Netherlands riders of course.

It was a very cool opportunity to meet some new people who are sharing the same passion for the sport, and it was super cool to ride with all the good friends :-)

Flymasters is a sick event, it was a great success, and you can be sure that i'll come back at the Flymasters 2014!!
Below AJ executing a nice Slim Chance (or dangle pass don't remember...)
BIG UP to Kite-Freaks and Flysurfer Kiteboarding for the organisation - really pro, it's so cool to see that we can also have a big kiteboarding event on land! Kitesurfing and Snowkiting are super high, but i think LandKiting is also a great show!
I'm super stoked about my 2nd place in the Freestyle competition, and my 1st place at the Best trix rocking a huge kite loop from the kiker riding my Cronix 10m! ;-)
Here is a cool video edit of me riding during my Heats and the free-sessions, big thanks to Louise for the very nice filming :
