Kiteboy Antoine Auriol

Bazingaa ! The French Kitesurfer has material to impress as much for its kite figures than for his appearances as a model or for his worldwide travel adventures. Handsome, athletic, intelligent, and even musician… Is Antoine Auriol the perfect rider?

Since 2015, Antoine embodies a new documentary series “La quête des vents“. He travels the world to understand how men live in symbiosis with the wind every day.
