I started canoeing when I was 10 years old. I spent my adolescence among the slalom fields all over Europe, training to be part of the national youth team. The hard and constant training, which led me to participate in the world and European junior slalom canoe championships, taught me what it means to work hard for a goal and how wonderful it is to achieve it. At 18 I started studying Physics and had to abandon slalom as the agonist’s career was not compatible with the university study I was undertaking. Inside me, however, I have always felt hungry for challenges and adrenaline and extreme canoeing has allowed me to fully satisfy it : abandoned the racing canoe, I started to experience the river in another way, traveling the world in search of wonderful rivers and of increasingly difficult passages.

Kayaking on the Outdoormix is the basis. And if originally kayaking on the Outdoormix was aimed at the river elite, today it opens its arms to the greatest number of people to simply have fun together in performance!
The principle is simple: to participate in the development of the Extreme Slalom by proposing a technical and fun course as well as a double Mass Start during a grouped descent from Le Rabioux to La Clapière.
Finally, a brand new Down River Freestyle format invented for the occasion will showcase the new Zion Exo* Monotype boats with flat tails in their wide features.
