Yoann Le Ven, new figure of 425pro
The 425pro family is growing again, and it's a 22-year-old French paddler, Yoann Le Ven, who joins the 425pro rider team.
Passionate about water sports since a young age, Yoann grew up in the world of the sea, beside his parents, experienced riders. He discovered stand up paddle thanks to his father who participated in many competitions in 2014, and Yoann started to practice stand up paddle 4 years ago. It is by starting to paddle on a Windsurfer board with a wooden fin that he reaches his first regional competitions. It has been his first steps in the world of stand up paddle racing. It's at the beginning of the year 2017 that he really begins to practice the stand up paddle a lot more, perfecting his skills on downwind conditions. Since he joined the 425pro family, Yoann has also enjoyed riding more, especially in downwind conditions, as the PIN CODE and OUTLAW boards from 425pro are perfectly suited to this kind of conditions.
Yoann began to take an interest in 425pro a few years ago, through Romuald Mammadou, but especially when seeing the 425pro weapon paddle, used by Olivia Piana at the world championship. The click was made when he met Jerry Mihimana, creator and manager of the brand 425pro, the flow went very well between them two, and Jerry gave him the opportunity to join the 425pro team for this season 2018. It is with great joy and gratitude that Yoann begins this new year, with beautiful projects and a bright future in the stand up paddle world.
Since he joined the team, Yoann has recently won a victory at the Gla Gla race, riding the OUTLAW 12'6 from 425pro. Despite the difficult conditions, Yoann won the Glagla race 12’6 and finished 13th overall out of nearly 500 people. A very beautiful experience that promises great horizons for future competitions. Yoann aims for this season 2018, to participate to his first France 12’6 and 14' championship, but also to participate in the EuroTour race, the “coupes de France”, as well as the regional competitions.
It is therefore more motivated than ever that Yoann starts this new 2018 sports season, strongly supported by the 425pro family!
