About me

Joel Gazeau

I was born in Jarnac, on the banks of the Charente River. I was 11 years old when I saw a canoe jump over the dam called “le barrage des moulins”. Since then, canoeing has taken a major place in my personal and professional life. For many years, I practiced it both competitively (member of the French downhill team) and in the family environment.

Within my occupation at the Charente department office, I first led and supervised itinerant rides with groups of youths by canoe and bicycle.

Subsequently, whilst in charge of outdoor sports, I contributed to the local rivers development plans, as well as the markings of mountain bike circuits to facilitate the practice of these activities.

Building from these experiences, I created “Ouest Charente Outdoor” in order to share with you all my knowledge and attachment to this area of ​​West Charente.
