About Me

I am an enthusiastic and open-minded individual with a passion for the great outdoors and a range of adventurous activities. My interests include diving, kite surfing, hiking, trekking, and wild camping. Staying active is a significant part of my daily routine, and I start each day with sunrise yoga, which sets a positive tone for the rest of the day.

As a committed early riser, I make the most of every opportunity to engage in sports, with kitesurfing being a particular favorite whenever the wind conditions are favorable.

My experiences with fellow surfers have been incredibly enriching, and I am grateful for the knowledge and friendships I've gained along the way. It is truly rewarding to contribute to and be a part of this wonderful community.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I enjoy meeting new people and hold the optimistic belief that, at the end of the day, we're all far more alike than we often admit. Couchsurfing has given me the opportunity to connect with a diverse range of individuals and share meaningful experiences.

I have had the pleasure of meeting and hosting some incredible surfers and showing them around the beautiful island of Mauritius. These interactions have enriched my life and broadened my perspective, reinforcing the value of our shared humanity.
