Follow the wind and explore unexpected places with Maureen
We're passionate about inspiring GlideSoul girls to dive into new experiences; to get out onto the water and give new watersports a try.

You can read Maureen's interview below!
Q: Tell us a bit about yourself:
A: Hello, I’m Maureen Castelle. I’m a French kitesurfer and was lucky enough to live in a paradise called New Caledonia before moving to Brazil - yet another paradise! I’m ranked 6th on the freestyle world championship and I'm busy training again for the 2019 season!
Q. What are your favourite GlideSoul products for kitesurfing?
A: I love training in warmer climates including here in Brazil. Every single time I'm on the water I wear one of my 3 GlideSoul spring suits. These suits are amazing and very adapt for kitesurfing. No matter how many tricks and manoeuvres I make, the spring suits don’t move (and they also offer good protection during the occasional crash). I can’t wait to see the new collection!
Q. What are your recommendations for girls who have never tried Kitesurfing before?
There are so many ways to have fun Kitesurfing and I definitely recommend you give it a try! You can jump, speed, ride waves or just cross the water! (And it's a great way to stay active and tanned all year!)
