Benoit Tremblay

I am recognized worldwide as one of the pioneers of traction kite sport having started the first manufacturing business in 1991. I am also free flight pilot and instructor (paragliding) since more than 30 years, former champion of world of ice sailing (WISSA). Furthermore, I participated in the most difficult snowkite races in the world VAKE (www.VAKE.no) in Norway in 2012. In 2016, I realized with my friend, the adventurer Frédéric Dion, (www.fredericdion.com) an expedition consisting in the one- day snowkiting circumnavigation 350 kilometers in less than 12 hours of the Manic Reservoir 5 located 1500 kilometers north of Montreal, Canada.
In April 2018, I conduct a solo expedition with the objective to make the first paragliding flight over the Pingualuit crater located in Pingualuit National Park in northern Quebec! The expedition involved complete self-autonomous snowkiting journey over a distance of more than 400 km return trip from the sea in Kangiqsujuak to the crater crossing over hills of more than 900 m elevation.
I cumulate more than 30 years of experience conducting expeditions on several continents and seas, in team, solo and with my wife and childrens. Through this passion that inhabits me, the goal has always been to raise awareness, to communicate and to teach wind sports, to surpass oneself and respect for the environment and living an engaged healthy lifestyle!

Of course, this experience comes with a few years, I am 63 years old and thanks to the practice of daily physical activity and healthy eating, which allow to achieve such expeditions
