Naish Team Europe rider

About Marius

Marius was born in Tignes, the famous international ski resort located in the french alp! Very far from the sea. He skied before he knew how to walk. In the summer 2015, his parents decided to left the mountains and they moved to South of France, in Le Grau du Roi. His father was already windsurfing and kitesurfing addict. Because he was used to practice extreme sports and getting the adrenalin, instead of skiing everyday, he started kiting everyday. He fell in love with this sport and never stoped.

For sure Robby Naish. He is a legend, with a soul of the perfect waterman. I would like to live his same life haha. But I also look up to the rider of my generation and team like Stig and Cohan. They are always trying to push the limits.  They are showing us and pushing us to follow the level. The next big air generation is just going crazy!
