Biggest achievement Riding all day & all supports

Tom, passionate about all types of glide sports, is our youngest rider. He started kiteboarding at the age of 7 with his dad. He rides everyday with any kind of support, depending on the weather and  the spot. When he kite foils, he likes to ride the Marabou, while on strapless wave he goes with the Angel. For ultralight wind, skimkite and snow kite, he goes with the Shaman.
He just loves the feeling of flying and liberty. One of his challenges of the coming year is to open a glide center in Oléron Island (France).
