Damien was born in 1973. After working in I.T. in Paris he decided to quit everything and settle in Morocco in 2003. He bought and renovated a hotel in south Morocco. He is married to Malika and has 2 children, Luna and Abel. After welcoming so many paragliding schools and clubs to his hotel, hotel Abertih, he was finally convinced to join tuition classes in 2009. Paragliding then became his passion if not his obsession! The very first glider he bought was an Airwave Sport 3 (Bruce Goldsmith design!) and he is now the happy owner of a PUNK, which looks after him very well for some good cross country flights in Algodonales or for wagga sessions in Aglou! He loves flying in Morocco as there are a good mix of mountain thermals in the Atlas and powerful sea breeze by the coast. Apart from summer time, flying is good all year long and he loves guiding pilots coming for the first time here, a good excuse to go flying…! When you come to visit him, after some unforgettable flights Damien will treat you to a good Moroccan beer at his place!
