I'm proud to announce you that I won again the French Championship
last week. For the 4th year in a row, RRD Obsession & Poison are
number one in Freestyle in France.
You will find below my report of the contest with some pictures.
I'm now off to Argentina for the 8th PKRA event... Next goal for the
end of the season is to get back to the Top 5 PKRA...
4 in a Row !
I was in Canet en Roussilon, south of France for the French Championnship from 23 to 27 october, to try to keep my title. I never saw so much riders registred for this competition, with a really good level. 32 riders men (full ladder), 28 juniors and 12 girls.
No wind on the 2 first days, and we been to the Cable Park for a gentle warm up ! On the monday, competition started on the morning with some rounds of Junior and Girls. But later in the afternoon, the
organisation had to stop the competition, as the wind was blowing up to 60 knots. I been out on my 6m Obsession to try those extreme conditions : Radical !!!
Finally, we had normal conditions on Tuesday. Gusty Wind, to 35-40 knots, and start of the heats with Mens (I was in the 1st heat !) at 9:00 am with no more that 10°...
I passed my heats one by one until the final, where I met Mallory de la Villemarqué. I had a pretty good riding in the gusty Tramontane, been pretty consistant in my heats. Choice of the kite size was an
important factor as the wind was going a bit up and down. And I choose to ride on my 7m Obsession on all my heats.
With my Victory against Mallory in final, I keep my French Champion Title, for the 4th year in a row. I'm pretty stocked with that !
I'm just back from this event, and I already left to Argentina, for the 8th PKRA event. My next goal is to reach back the Top 5 PKRA in 2010... 3 more events to come...
stay tuned !

contitions, Julien Quentel gained the title of Champion de France
overall 2010, probably the last Overall title in France!
Here you can find his words:
"Conditions were really marginal and I think we could stop the event
at quarterfinals, but I can understand that event organizers want to
close the event with a winner. So, in this kind of conditions, the
only thing to do is to go on the water, trying to do your best. Of
course you need good equipment, but it's mostly about your mind. My goal was to fight
for the overall title and the only one who could take it apart me was
Jules Denel, who is really strong. So I gave my best to keep him
behind me, and when I saw he was out from the contest and me still in,
I felt free and without pressure anymore. Honestly I'm really happy to
have won this Overall Title having compete this last event, and I'm
really sad that this will be the last year in France with this kind of
Overall ranking, since I think that this ranking push you to be more
complete in all the disciplines. I'm really proud of being the last
winner of the France Funboard Overall Title!"
From the 21-24 oct. we had the danish wave and freestyle
championships here in Klitmøller. We had all kind of conditions from
3.7-5.6 weather and both port and starboard tack.
I won both disciplines and are now danish wave and freestyle champion..
Thanks to my sponsors

allego qualche foto di Tenerife e qualche foto action con il nuovo
quad 2011 e un link di un mio video della scorsa settimana
dove "provo" il doppio! (sono agli inizi!)
I heard that Portsmouth University were doing a naked calendar photo
shoot for charity and I made sure they got some of the latest gear to
model behind/next to completely naked.
I'm getting copies of the original photos soon as possible to send out
to the mags to see if we can go anywhere with it.
Just thought I'd keep you in the loop.

spot next to Kerhilio, the wind dropped and competitors for the final
event of the French Championship 2010 were forced to come back again
the site of the Yacht Club de Carnac. The weather forecasts are not
very optimistic for this Sunday and will confirm the hours with a
light north wind to the north east that barely exceed 8 knots.
All eyes are now turning to the weather forecast for Tuesday and
Wednesday with the hope of completing the wave event, were our RRD
rider Julien Quentel is on the course to win the last Overall French
