Background from Benoit:

I was born in Brest and have always lived near the seaside in Plougonvelin on the coast of the Iroise sea in Brittany. My parents, windsurfing enthusiasts and former competitors, have brought to my two brothers, my sister and me a whole maritime culture: fishing, sailing (dinghy, cruiser, catamaran) , windsurfing, kayaking, diving, snorkeling and surfing. Of all these experiences, surfing has been the center of the whole family’s life. We are used to sharing our boards, so I enjoy trying all types of boards and now I do three disciplines in competition : surf, longboard and stand up paddle. 

In surf, I’m one of the best Brittany juniors. In longboard, I'm one of the best France juniors. My favorite discipline and the one I do best in is stand up paddling and since 2012, I'm on the Stand Up World Tour. Competition motivates me a lot and I also enjoy traveling. These two aspects of surfing give me beautiful human and sporting adventures with seniors to help me grow. It’s always exciting and I wish to multiply these kinds of experiences!
