Julien Mas was in Dakhla, Western Sahara, when the first wave of Covid-19 hit Europe. There was no chance to return to France and he decided to stay in the freestyle paradise which offers flat water, steady wind and warm weather. March has a lot of wind and Julien shows in his video, how much he improved his skills again. Well done!

Julien Mas about his time in Dakhla: Some people win a million at the lottery, I won THE “lockgolddown”! In March 2020, a terrific virus like in the movies show up from “Batman’s friends” really??… And the world kind of stop Windsurfing! Damn…I couldn’t go back home when the lockdown took place. This is something I will never forget. Imagine an hotel like Dakhla attitude where there is normally around 300 people, empty… just for you and 10 others friends. This is exactly what happened and it was crazy! Many times we thought we were in a TV show because what we were living was absolutely unreal regarding worldwide situation! Gym in the morning, slack line before lunch, windsurf and kitesurfing in the afternoon… evening with your friend (ping-pong, pool, cinema, pétanque, party and more…)
