During his whole life of surfing, his has gathered a wide sample of “tricks and tips”. So, he decided to do his knowledge a share. I quitted his job five years ago to dedicate himself entirely to his two passions: teaching and surfing! In this pure and marvelous sport, which is surf, he put all his skills at the service of the motivated persons ready to discover, learn and progress.

Antoine is 28 years old and he is a typical product of the Waiteuteu Surf Club of Messanges. He did his first ride there at the age of 10 and has never left this habit so far.
More than surf, it is the element which attracts him, that’s why he passed his diploma in sport natation college in Bordeaux. But he is always seeking of the most intense riding sensations. So that he enjoys spending his time across the Atlantic coast in search of new waves. His curiosity brings him also to the surf foil, a discipline where he excels since he is back from Guadeloupe.
His love for the pines, the dunes and the sandbanks drive him to the BPJEPS four years ago and then he joined the Nature Surf Camp team. His listening, his calm in his pedagogy and his energy in the waves, promises you a state-of-the-art learning.
