Although still only 18 years-old, Camille Delannoy is already something of a tour veteran and this year is his third year competing on the GKA Kite-Surf World Tour. He was born and raised in France before moving to Prea, in Brazil, with his family and that’s where he honed his high-powered riding style. He always seems most at home when the conditions are really cranking and his strapless freestyle level is high. His front rolls are some of the most fluid, tweaked and stylish out there and he commits hard when out on the water. He managed seventh place overall in both of the last two years and he’ll be pushing to improve on that in 2018.
