Nouria Newman

A native of Villaret du Nial (a small village the French Alps) Nouria began kayaking at the age of 5 on the calm Isere River. Despite spending several years primarily racing slalom (an Olympic discipline), she continued to freestyle and extreme kayak alongside her career as a top athlete and her political science studies in Toulouse. Nouria Newman travels with her kayak in search of not only white water but also human adventures: discovering new cultures, exploring, broadening her mind, sharing and meeting people across the globe.
