Born and bred in the South Pacific, Tom grew up living and breathing the ocean. Since '99 he’s been the vice world champion twice, won multiple French and New Caledonian freestyle comps and been the only Frenchman to win a PKRA stop.
When he’s not travelling the world competing in the Redbull King of the Air or doing photo shoots for his kite sponsors; Duotone Kiteboarding, Tom joins the Zephyr team to deliver personalised kitesurfing adventure packages on his home turf in New Caledonia.
Riding alongside professionals is your ticket to improve and test your limits. Tom’s slick and stylish riding is something to behold; he’s best known for old-school moves that are big, high and always stylish.
Your time on the water starts the same day you arrive in New Caledonia as you cruise out to your first Islands on his luxury 43ft sailing catamaran. Then it’s action-packed every day with Tom and the crew.
For the week, your competent crew will follow the winds to the best kite spots along the coast on a one-way exploration where you'll see none; or very few, other kiters... Perfect!
If you are a competent freerider or freestyler who’s up for long down-winders, boat launches, crazy kite adventures and cruising the open ocean, then this tour is for you.
Relax and enjoy the tour onboard the beautiful Lady Helen.
Complete with three double guest cabins, two bathrooms, three single cabins for your crew and a spacious galley kitchen this 43ft Sailing catamaran is fully equipped with all the essential toys for you to play on such as paddle boards, snorkel and masks, fishing gear and spears.
The tender will always be available for downwinders and rescues, and the sails will be your daily transfers to the next epic kite spot.
There is loads of room on deck for your own gear and Tom will have some of the latest Duotone gear for you to test out as well.
How spoiled you'll be with a full-time local cook serving up divine French food morning, noon and night.
With a huge selection of patisseries, cheeses, small goods, baguettes, fruit, coffee, juice and freshly caught fish, there will be something new and delectable to enjoy each day while island hopping through the French Islands on this awesome kite cruise.
