Discipline Snowkite, kitesurfing
Biggest achievement French Freerace Snowkite 2019 Champion

Eloi is our king of the mountains. He started skiing when he was just 5 years old, and then discovered the kiting and paragliding world, which quickly became passions too.
His passion for kiteboarding started by playing with some small trainer kites and he then added the Mountainboard to go around with his kite. Next step, was obviously to kite on snow, where you can nowadays constantly spot him exploring the mountains and enjoying freedom. Later on, he started kitesurfing, to be able to play in any wind conditions. But if he could, he would definitely snowkite all year round, even in the summer!
He likes to ride on Shaman 3m and 4m when snowkiting and the Spirit 10m, so he can kite in any conditions. He’s so passionate about Gin’s product names, that he named his cat Nazca, after one of our first kites.
