Arthur Lhez, is our young and ambitious rider who emanates kindness and motivation. He claims to be “a young rider who will beat the best in the world”, which demonstrates his competitive spirit and strong ambition.

Arthur started competing in the kiteboarding world at 11 years old, thanks to his mother’s kite school. At the age of only 13 years old, he was crowned Youth World Champion in freestyle. He was then forced to stop competing in the freestyle discipline due to knee problems but the timing was perfect to start foiling, as he had always been attracted by speed. His envy of going fast brought him to those new feelings of adrenaline and liberty.

In the coming years, our wonder boy will fight to reach the first steps of the podium at the world championship. The Olympic Games are also an exciting long-term project for him, even though they are fast approaching. There is nothing like having ambitious challenges!

His 15 Boom V2 will be his weapon of choice. He feels that the glider has an ability to accelerate that he simply never felt before. We are impatient to see what the future holds for you, Arthur!
