Iris Benoit is a teenager long-boarder from Montreal, Canada. Give her a long board, a skateboard, a surfboard, a paddle board, a snowboard, any type of board, she’ll tell you “my life is about riding”. She wants everyone to feel what she feels when she rides! Iris will actually make her mood her reality by doing what she feels and loves at the day. And who’s the one with a surfboard in Montreal at 5AM? It’s Rastachixx going to catch a wave before attending school! Speaking of school, she’s now in Bois-de-Boulogne College in “Administration and commerce”. She is actually a businesswoman. Rastachixx can make the difference between having lots of fun, being peaceful and take opportunities seriously. She can’t make a term on what she will like to do in the future because of all the things she love but she knows that she wants to make change and live her crazy life. She also knows that she will travel all her life for new adventures. Just talk with Iris about holidays and she can talk all day about her Africa humanitarian help she did, her trip to Mexico, the month she spent in Cap Hatteras… So basically she will do anything to travel the world where she can surf or long board! If you want to see her travel pictures, @rastachixx is also the name of her Instagram.
