Hello everybody,
My name is Julien Quentel,or Juju, I was born in Guadeloupe and for the past 3 years I've been living between Bretagne in France and the Island of ST Martin in the French West Indies.

I train at the E.N.V, the National Sail school of Quiberon and I've just passed my B.E.E.S 1er degr which is a French certificate to be a Sail instructor. I started Windsurfing in Guadeloupe at the age of 6. When I was 16, I came back to France where I live in the town of Brest with my twin brothers , Jerome et Thomas. At the beginning it was hard to get used to the climate.

My coach, named Stephane Krause, has just open a formula windsurfing training center at the E.N.V de Quiberon. This center is open to top athletes. When I'm in ST Martin, I train at the-Windy Reef center -, a windsurf and surf school on Galion beach. It is my last year in the youth category and I am really glad the I become the 2005 Youth World Chamipon.
