About Me

Whoever you are, wherever you come from, whatever you believe in, we all deserve respect.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm both interested in surfing or hosting. I had amazing experience in surfing. I got few hosts cause I'm not living in such big place for that but I still got this state of mind. So wherever you come from you are welcome at home...


When I was in USA, I experienced the first time CS with my friends and one of them is a member of CS and he told us to try, so during the trip, we met some nice people. And I decided to continue this great adventure.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

put my foot on the Kjeragbolten in Norway, pretty amazing...
Rode as fast as possible between boats with jet-ski on a bay in Martinique, fantastic !!
Walked alone by night in Atacama desert and "heard" the absolute silence there.
I did a bare foot hike in Lencois desert in Brazil.
Went alone to do amazing high mountains hikes in Bolivia.

Teach, Learn, Share

Learning and teaching or how to forward in life in my opinion. I'm open to learn everything and I can teach few things but let's discuss about it, I have to improve myself to that skill. Not easy.
