WE ARE THE PEOPLE BEHIND SEABUBBLES

We are the aeronautical engineers and watermen behind the Hydroptère.
We have been making boats fly for decades.
And one day, we realized that we could put it to good use for the general public.

An incredible tandem

Two atypical minds brought together by the idea to fly on water and the desire to change the mode of urban transportation in cities around the world, to legate a better planet to the future generations.

Anders Bringdal Founder and President

Anders Bringdal

Founder and President

Two times windsurf world champion in 2009 and 2010 on waves higher than twenty meters.
Anders lived in Australia, Hawaii and made several sails around the world before arriving in France where he met Alain.

Very quickly, the two men got along and when the idea of SeaBubbles was born, Anders surely got in it and became the co-founder of the project.

ALAIN THÉBAULT Founder and Vice-President

ALAIN THÉBAULT

Founder and Vice-President

Inventor of the Hydroptère, Alain devotes his life to his biggest dream: making a boat fly on the water.

During the summer 2015, he crossed the Pacific between Los Angeles and Honolulu to meet Bertrand Piccard and the Solar Impulse plane.

On the pontoons, his three daughters were waiting for him:
" beating speed records is great but it would be awesome to make everyone fly ". The idea was born.

The Crew

A very solid team coming from different horizons, different ages, different stories, all working together to make the cities flow again
