Interview with Kui Ha, Sales Director for canoes and kayaks


Who are you?

"Water is my natural element! Formerly a high-level swimmer, I quickly moved beyond the swimming pool to sailing and windsurfing.
Naturally, I went on to explore new territory underwater by passing my diving levels. After my arrival in Hendaye, I, of course, started surfing, and thanks to Itiwit, I expanded my kayak and SUP skills.
Apart from that, I've been with Decathlon since 2001! My career path has involved many shops in France and abroad, and I'm a pioneer at heart, which I was able to express by opening a shop in France, and opening two new countries, Korea and Vietnam! I also had the great fortune to be involved in the creation of Itiwit in 2015! "

What do you do at itiwit?

"When Itiwit was founded in 2015, I managed the supply as RS and SCM for the first 4 years. In 2019, I went to Vietnam to open a new market there and am now back at Itiwit in marketing. As Sales Director, I'm in charge of the kayak market as well as the "On water" ecosystem for our non-EU customs areas."

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

"The freedom and ease of exploring new areas on the water. I love the feeling of flying over the water, as well as the waves!"

Your fondest memories 

"My first test mission in the Calanques near Marseille. The water was perfectly smooth and crystal clear. I really felt like I was flying over the water, not even aware of the surface, only seeing the bottom of the sea under my kayak! That was the moment I fell in love with the sport!"
