We are pleased to announce that Mallory DE LA VILLEMARQUE is joining the F-ONE & MANERA International Team but also the working team of our Spanish distributor. In fact this kitesurfer, born in Guadeloupe, will also work on the Spanish market in order to develop the brand in this country.
When he was young, he discovered the water sports and quickly the competition. In 2004 at 17 years old, he became European Junior Champion. After many years of competitions at the highest level, Mallory decided to become a coach by doing kitecamps all around the world and now he is beginning a new adventure by working with our Spanish distributor.
We are really happy to welcome him in the team.

- 2007 – 6th PKRA
- 2007, 2009 and 2010 – Vice French Champion
- 2004 and 2006 – French Champion
Let’s discover a little more about Mallory:
How long have you been practicing kitesurf for?
I’m doing kitesurf since 2002.
What’s your favorite quiver?
The Acid 133x42 and the Bandit 10sqm.
What are your favorite spots?
I like Tarifa because it is such a polyvalent spot with all kind of conditions. For learning new freestyle tricks I love Sri Lanka in winter and for wave riding the North Shore of Oahu is nº1 forever!!
What’s a perfect session for you?
Perfect conditions, a beautiful spot (preferably warm), few good friends to share with and to push each other, and good tricks stomped.
What is the craziest thing you ever did?
Riding in massive Waimea shorebreak with onshore and very light wind, when the lifeguards warned me that they wouldn't come save me if I had a problem. It was pretty stupid...
Since when are you doing kitecamps?
I started doing kitecamps 6 years ago. I really like to help people progress because it’s such a pleasure to see their evolution, when they learn new tricks and get back of the water with a huge smile! This is the perfect combo of work and pleasure. Besides, there is often a really good atmosphere in the kitecamps because everybody is here to relax, progress and enjoy in an idyllic place.
What is your program this 2014/2015 year?
I will be back living in Tarifa in April in order to work with the Spanish distributor of F-ONE. I will continue to do some kitecamps (www.mallorykitecamps.com), and I will also judge some stops of the PKRA.
How do you see your integration in the F-ONE team?
I hope that I will have fun with the team, participate to some shootings in order to push the brand and test gear to help F-ONE.
What is your biggest dream?
Living happy by doing my passion until the end!
