My name is Nicolas Abbal, I live in Pau (France) and I am passionate about outdoor sports, technology, and how it can be put together.

My passion for outdoor activities really began at the age of 14, when I started kayaking. Then I discovered climbing, skiing, trail running, surfing... What really motivates me is playing with the elements and feeling the connection with it. I am now more focused on long distance trail running.

Since I was a kid, I was also very curious about computers, and started programming quite early. I was fascinated by the freedom that coding gives us, and how you can use it to express your creativity.

Growing older, I was always looking for opportunities to solve some of the real world issues that I was facing, using my skills in computer sciences.

I really enjoy trying to come up with innovating solutions, mixing electronic prototyping, 3D printing and coding.
