Geoffrey, retail supplier at itiwit

An interview with Geoffrey, a Retail Supplier for the canoe-kayak hybrid family


Who are you?

"I have a strong appetite for sport and business, so naturally I came back to DECATHLON more than 15 years ago now.
Decathlon has allowed me to discover a large number of jobs and have strong beliefs about outdoor sports.
I started mountain biking at a very young age as a competitor and instructor and I'm also self-taught in watersports.
I am therefore a STAND-UP PADDLEBOARD enthusiast, initially for leisure and then competitively."

What do you do at itiwit?

"As Retail Supplier, I am responsible for sales and purchases.
This job is the link between the production, design and marketing of our products.
Accurately estimating needs, predicting potential sales, etc. it’s my day-to-day job."

What do you like about kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding?

"What I like the most is that this sport is the feeling of freedom it provides.
Stand-up paddleboarding also allows for a variety of activities: surfing, racing or simply wandering around and discovering new places to play."

Your fondest memories

"Travelling down the Dordogne for 350 km on a tandem SUP, 3 days of adventure as a team both day and night. My favourite memory is still sailing at night, with the noises multiplied by ten; the atmosphere was unreal!!!
The Lake Annecy tour on SUPs and kayaks but especially as a team with a night in Bivouac.
The Tarn Water 78 km Stand-up Paddleboard Race, with a route under the Millau Viaduct, the view there is extraordinary."
