GREG POISSONNIER, Slappy Agency Manager & cOLLAPSe skateboards co-founder

Every industry has its key players and for French boardculture, Greg Poissonnier is one of them.

Originally from the North of France and having moved to Pau in the Pyrénées at the age of 12, Greg saw the rise of snowboarding in the early 90’s and how it spread to the masses, which is also when he honed his own skills in the sport. Having joined the Quiksilver pro team a few years later, he experienced firsthand the first pro contrats as well as the first editions of several now legendary events such as the Quik Cup. These travels and interactions led him to establish a wide network in the industry.
