How long have you been flying?
I started paragliding on my 18th birthday, it was my birthday present. I started with an internship and then I never stopped, now I try to train every day for my future projects.
I really like the kliff 2 for para-mountaineering suits. The minimal space requirement and its weight made me choose this harness. Otherwise for everything else I like the Kolibri which is what I'm looking for in terms of lightweight comfort
Why Kortel design?
I don't really have a very precise answer, I think it came naturally with their finishing qualities and their philosophy. This corresponds to my expectations 100%.
Your best flight?
Taking off from the Fletschhorn, probably my most beautiful flight but also my most stressful, it is in these moments that you feel very small. Souvenir shared with a member of the Team: Remi.
Many projects with my paraglider that are maturing, para-alpinism combinations that for the moment remain in a corner of my head.
