"Stay simple, enjoy the outdoors"

Thomas Richard is an accomplished freestyle and creek boater. He began kayaking at the age of 9 after trying every sport and several years of mountain biking. He immediately fell in love with kayaking for the discipline. A local icon, Gael Kernin, inspired Thomas as a kid and got him into freestyle kayaking. “Since then I never stopped kayaking, I hope I’ll paddle all my life!” Says Thomas.
