North Kiteboarding are stoked to announce that Camille Delannoy has joined their team of International Riders. Known for his highly powered riding style, Camille Delannoy’s passion for riding waves is in the freedom it gives him.

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 sport would be either Flame Bowl in Madagascar or Alibaba in Cabo Verde.
