Louka Joins The Naish International Kiteboarding Team
As the new decade dawns upon us, Naish Kiteboarding are scooping up some of the hottest talent. The first big move was Christophe Tack and now Louka Pitot, the French resident hailing from Mauritius, is joining the ranks, too.
Adding to the talented new generation of Naish team riders we are stoked to announce the addition of Louka Pitot to our international team.
Growing up on the tropical island of Mauritius, Louka Pitot was always destined to be a water athlete. His passion for kiteboarding sparked at the age of 10 and it continues in his current home base of Montpellier, France, where he is taking his kiteboarding to the next level. Ranking 9th on the Kiteboarding World Tour, Louka is competing his way to the top.
At only 20 years old Louka is already 2x Junior World Champion and 3x Junior French Champion — It was only a matter of time until he made the switch to Naish Kites and we couldn’t be happier to have him join our International Team.
“I’m stoked to have Louka, an island boy like myself, joining the team! Young and absolutely passionate about the sport and with a strong competition background,” said Robby, “Louka will add even more depth to our already insane team of young professional kiteboarders.”
Louka is planning to compete on all stops on the GKA Freestyle Tour this year and will be releasing his new video projects in the near future. “I’m really looking forward to more downwind foiling and wing-surfing and to be able to do it all with Naish – something I could only dream of,” said Louka.
You can be sure to see lots of Louka in the upcoming months as he trains to get ready for the GKA Tour. Welcome to the team, Louka!
