Thomas was born in the North West of France in Le Havre and started kiting there at the age of 13. He now spends most of his time on the South West coast so he can surf it's beautiful beach breaks. “I’m now part of the North Kiteboarding team and have become a globe trotter but my origins remain important to me, my home town is the starting and finishing point of any of my trips and is still very special to me.”

A question that the riders have to answer very often is: “ What are you going to do after?” Thomas’ answer to that is simple: “Well I don’t know! But as far as competitions go I will try to follow most of the stops in order to bring a title home one day.”

Thomas and a young group of riders of the new generation have created a video crew called “Children of Revolution”, to show their style of riding and the lifestyle that they are living. The title of the show, “On the pursuit of happiness” speaks for itself.

Thomas follows the PKRA in freestyle and wave competitions which keeps him close to any movements within the sport and allows him the chance to push himself to his limits. 

“The people that influence me the most are Rob Machado (surf), Eero Ettala (snowboard) and George Bernard Shaw (writer). My passions in life are diverse; I snowboard a lot during the winter, wakeboard in summer, and surf as much as I can. Apart from that, I like art, beautiful things, good wine and women.”
