Maël has been training in Surf Lifesaving for 14 years, mostly around the area of Seignosse (SouthWest France).
He is currently studying 3rd year in a Chemical Engineering School in Clermont-Ferrand, which also allows him to train every day and compete almost every weekend thanks to a special school timetable.
Registered on the official list of the French Ministry of Youth and Sports as Athlete, since 2012, he has participated with the French Team at the last European Championship in Oostend (Belgium) and with his club at the last French Championship in Hendaye.
Mael is an amazing athlete who wears Vaikobi gear in and on the water but also for running as you can see from the picture below! We're delighted to have him on the team.
