marc, an engineer at itiwit

Who are you?

"Being a watersports enthusiast, I took my first swimming lesson when I was only 3 months old. Since then, I have never stopped. Whether it’s swimming and water polo competitions, surfing, diving and little kayaking and SUP adventures.
I joined Decathlon in 2013 as an in-store sales assistant during my design studies in Barcelona. In 2018, I arrived in Hendaye and since then I have developed my two passions: design and sport."

What do you do at itiwit?

"I am a product designer for the racing kayak 500s and the product ranges, like vests and paddles. I also work with other Itiwit designers on our user's experience and the colour balances of the products."

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

"The feeling of gliding and the fact that I can discover beaches and other inaccessible places."

Your fondest memories

"1/ Kayaking adventure around the Koh Rong island in Cambodia. Wild nature and lots of hungry monkeys.
2/ Rafting down the Vjosë river in Albania.
3/ Kayak trip along the coast of Ibiza to discover small, unspoilt beaches."
