“I am stoked to join the JK Team!” States Nouria Newman.  “I am looking forward to paddle top performance boats as well as being involved in a company who understand me and support all my kayaking project whether it’s in a plastic boat or competing slalom. I am also very excited to be part of a team who loves kayaking as much as I do!”

“I am super excited to have Nouria on our team as she has been a competitor I have had the pleasure of sharing an eddy with over several years.” Says Emily Jackson, Team Manager for Jackson Kayak.  “Nouria is a big package in a little frame which makes her so much fun to watch! She can go big and is someone I look forward to working with more off and on the water. She is one of the most diverse paddlers and you can see each discipline contributing to the other. Cant wait to get on big wave with her again!”

About Nouria Newman: Nouria resides in Le Villaret du Nial, France and, at 21, has accomplished more as a whitewater kayaker than most would in a lifetime.  With an eclectic list of competitive results in three major whitewater disciplines (slalom, freestyle and extreme racing), Nouria showed success at an elite level at a very early age and evolved into a top female paddler. Nouria continues her amazing climb in whitewater this past year with podium finishes all over the globe winning the Whitewater Grand Prix,  Voss in Norway, the Ottawa XL and with top finishes at the Slalom Worlds and the World Cup.  Nouria was recognized for her accomplishments as a paddler winning this past year’s Rider of the Year award.
