Airush is stoked to announce the addition of French kiteboarder, Victor Hays, to the team. Victor’s relationship with kiteboarding extends over 10 long years. Competing professionally in freestyle until 2013, Victor’s goals changed to serve a purpose of being an active member of his local and international kiteboarding community. Victor’s passion is riding all types of kites and boards, much like Airush riders Julien Kerneur and Oswald Smith, his versatility on a kite is extensive.
“We love these types of riders…” Team Manager, Marc Schmid, mentioned. “They are an asset to the brand in terms of developing the image of kiteboarding by not defining to one single discipline. It’s what makes us unique as kite enthusiasts and allows us experience so many feelings from waves, foil, wakestyle, etc. This is what Victor loves to do and we find it absolutely amazing to have someone like him onboard.”
In addition to his versatility, Victor spends a lot of his time assisting in developing products. With his extensive background in this field, he has been able to bring his own expertise into the Airush family. He will be joining riders like World Champion Bruna Kajiya and Alex Pastor, along with Julien, Oswald, and Bas Koole to make Airush even better!
Welcome to the Team Victor!
