Rafaële Deguéhégny Interview

We chat to French surfer, model and Nikita team rider Rafaële Deguéhégny about tunes, good times and beach essentials…

I can’t get enough… hours in a day (only 24 is ridiculous!)

My three suitcase essentials are… a toothbrush, a book and my surfboard! Actually since I am not a light traveller, I would also take a fourth thing; a bikini!

The top five tunes on my playlist are… it is always different but lately it would be something by Hot Chip, John Frusciante, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, CSS and Jehro.

The five people I would most like to meet… I’ll pick up two because I already have met the people I’d like to have around, but let’s say that I would love to be invited for dinner at Bree Hodge’s (Desperate Housewives) and I would be curious to see if I would love my dog so much if it could speak (I don’t think so…)

I feel pressure when… I can’t do something and someone is watching, expecting me to do it.

Life is hard when… it’s my turn to clean the house…

Life is good when… the sun is warm and shining (I’m on the top of the world when this comes with a slight offshore wind and 1m 50 waves!)

When times are tight… lets just dance! (and eat pasta with nothing in it…;) )

The reason I hate… cucarachas (cafards) is because they are useless, ugly, dirty and always exactly where you don’t want them.

The reason I love… feeling free and laughing is because it makes you alive at the fullest.

The greatest moment of my life… I don’t know which one to pick between when I am in a big lane at the supermarket or when I can’t park at the beach because they are too many cars in summer! 🙂

My ultimate motivation is… going on a trip.

My biggest fear is… facing a shark in the water.

When the day is done… comes the night…

Before I die I want to… feel I couldn’t have done more to enjoy my time.
