The man behind


Xavier Fourcade:

“I fell in love with the ocean and surfing at the age of 9, attracted by the sense of nature immersion and the way it provided an escape from lot of things I guess… At the age of 14, I got lucky enough to join the national “Pôle France de surf”, supervised by Michel Plateau, for 5 years.
I just kept going and ended my studies with a Master in informatics.”

“My passion for surfing never left me, and I have found a way to combine it with my work with this app Play-planner.com dedicated to the Surf Schools. This is my second app in line, my first one being Ridescoremobile.com which is dedicated to Surfing Competitions. The Scoring Competition software was the one that sets me on my self employment track since 2008. Here are a few of my clients for this first app: IBA (International bodyboarding association), KSP and GKA (Global Kitesurfing Association) and the Waterman league with their World Stand up paddle tour.

Belonging to the field, I feel I have a good knowledge of the expectations of my clients, and if not, I am able to ask the right questions to make the right assessment of a problematic situation. My focus is to simplify my clients lives when it comes down to using this 2 apps.

Trilingual? I was born in France, spend lot of time in Spain, and my wife is South African. So I can speak French, Spanish or English as you like! Awesome no?

Please do not hesitate to get in touch so we can speak about your school!”
