We are extremely proud to welcome Camille Delannoy to our team of international riders.
Already a legendary wave rider at the age of 20, Camille has been on the kitesurfing scene throughout his teens. He has been vice World Champion twice in the GKA Kitesurf World Tour, and in 2019, was ranked 5th on the World Tour.
Camille was born and raised in France, before moving to Prea, Brazil, a kitesurfing haven. From the age of 12 when he first started kiting, Camille was hooked and from then onwards, he continues to travel in search of the most epic wind and waves.
Known for his highly powered riding style, Camille’s passion for riding waves comes from the freedom you have in wave riding.
“You catch so many waves, wherever it breaks and ride it in whatever way you want. You’re able to ride waves you would never think of for surfing.”
Camille spends most of his time training in Brazil, perfecting his strapless front roll tic tacs and kiteloops as he continues to push strapless freestyle to the next level. If he was forced to choose, his favourite wave spot would be either Flame Bowl in Madagascar or Alibaba in Cabo Verde.
For 2020, Camille is totally focused on competing and we are thrilled to have such a progressive, young wave rider to add to our growing team of athletes. Camille will also be a great asset to North’s development team, as he works closely with them to test and develop our surfboard range in the future.
Mike Raper, Brand Director at North Kiteboarding, says;
“Camille is young, passionate and driven. His knowledge of the sport will be invaluable for our team, and we are honoured to have him join us.”
Welcome to the team Camille, we are so excited for your journey with North to begin.
