My home spot was "Chasse sur Rhône" on the river Rhône for many years. Not the cleanest nor the finest spot ever, but definitely a nice playground for freestyle when you live in Lyon, far from the sea. I recently moved from my home town Lyon to the south of France, in between Marseille and Aix-en-Provence. Warmer weather and a large variety of spots around Marseille from wave to freestyle, i'm sure i'll enjoy my new life! :)
Little story about you
I started windsurfing at the age of 10 at the lake of Salagou with my father and mother. I kept on riding on the river rhône mainly during holidays until the age of 16. At that time i started freestyle with friends from Lyon and we created "La BAR" a team of friends who tries to promote sailing on the rhône, freestyle windsurfing and a fun way of sailing in general. At the age of 17 i started sailing with Loftsails, thanks to Michel Marchand who distributes the brand in France. Since then, it's been more than 10 years that i sail with Monty's brand all over the globe, both in freestyle and waves, and i couln't be happier! It's been so many years that i actually couldn't imagine using other sails! :-)
Fuerteventura is the place where you wanna go. It offers multiple type of conditions, from wave to freestyle or slalom, there is wind all summer long, no need to bring a wetsuit... and it is cheap compared to many other destinations! All in all, it's in the top destinations. But if i had a lot of money to spend, i would say Maui as my top spot, no doubt about it!
Why ride Loftsails gear?
In my opinion, Loftsails represents the essence of windsurfing: ease and fun! The sails are very performant, durable, really easy to use, with a wide wind-range and cheaper than most of the sails. Definitely the best price to performance ratio on the market!
