COMME UN CAMION : Asphalt Surfeur

When I joined the team of truck drivers, the idea of nicknaming myself "The Driver" came to me quite quickly. Beyond having many licences, I have always been, more generally speaking, attracted by everything that rolls, slides or flies!

On these same pages, I've had the pleasure of occasionally finding myself at the wheel or on the handlebars of a few cars, motorbikes, scooters, bicycles and even electric scooters. The means of transport of the day follows a discussion with my beloved brother-in-law. Surfing (on the wave) since his youngest age, he was only praising me for his new skateboard which was supposed to reproduce the sensations and movements.
