Our nature sports instructors : paragliding and canyoning in the Alpes-Maritimes.
YOUR CANYONING AND PARAGLIDING GUIDE IN THE ALPES-MARITIMES
With an atypical background, Pierrot has been immersed in sports, nature and creativity from a very young age. Originally from the flat country, he took part in all the activities he could find (handball, soccer, swimming, circus arts…) At 17, he became a soccer team coach and a summer camp leader. Then, after a classic school course and the obtaining of a DUT Mechanical Engineering, he enters the National Institute of Acrobatics for 3 years. He then divides his time between the Puy du Fou as an acrobatic stuntman and the Zip-Zap Circus school in South Africa where he teaches circus arts. It is during a return to France in the Vosges mountains that he discovered paragliding, followed by climbing and canyoning in Annecy.
YOUR CANYONING AND CLIMBING GUIDE IN THE ALPES-MARITIMES
Pure product of the Haut Pays Grassois, Tom is originally from Saint Vallier de Thiey, a charming little village among many others halfway between the Mediterranean Sea and its beautiful Cote d’Azur and the mountains of the hinterland and Mercantour. He grew up in contact with nature in an isolated environment far from the big cities; a choice of life of his parents that has now become his own. It is in this idyllic setting that he was introduced to multiple outdoor activities by his father from a very young age: climbing from the age of 3, then mountain hiking, mountaineering, caving, mountain biking, motorcycling and then, once he became an adult, he took up skydiving and paragliding.
Now in his thirties, he decided to put all his energy into a new adventure by joining Pierrot, his long-time friend with whom he shares the same values of life and the same attraction for nature activities, within AILÉMENTS.
