Sebastian Thébault, Arthur and Eulalie´s father:

We knew Arthur Samzun was coming to Guadeloupe to film the boys, originally planning to focus on cousins Arthur and Mahé. However, it quickly became a family story. Our goal was to showcase Gwada’s most beautiful spots despite the fickle wind and wave conditions, often riding in very light winds typical for Guadeloupe.

Arthur Samzun’s footage is stunning. Foiling just centimeters from his camera for water shots was an amazing experience for the boys. The joy of Wing Foiling is multiplied when shared with family – there’s nothing better!

Arthur Samzun, producer of Tropic Buoys:

I hope viewers will be inspired by the Thébault family's story to see the power of passion, dedication, and unity in pursuing their love for water sports. They welcomed me with open arms and gave me all the tips for riding in perfect conditions. What board sports enthusiast doesn't dream of sharing moments like these with their children? I hope that the vision of the “Thébault Family” will be conveyed as I experienced it through this video and will inspire others to continue their passion for the ocean and board sports, passing it on to future generations with all the values that come with it!
