Elwing headquarters

Recently rewarded for its attractiveness, Bordeaux was the quintessential place to create Elwing Boards. Welcoming, the city that combines heritage and dynamism offers the ideal environment for businesses like Elwing. Less than an hour from Arcachon and recently linked to Paris by the LGV high-speed line, Bordeaux favors the development of entrepreneurial projects. Today, the city has 4 business incubators. These different structures are organized in a network in order to share resources and ideas.


Elwing's premises are located in Darwin eco-system, a former military barracks rehabilitated from 2009. Located on the right bank of the Bordeaux conurbation, the old Niel barracks has been completely redesigned. It offers a remarkable and eco-responsible environment for resident companies and many visitors. Over time, Darwin has become a must for tourism in Bordeaux, thanks to its unique architecture, its numerous events and Le Magasin Général its 100% organic restaurant.

If you have tested the PowerKIT and would like to extend the experience for 1 hour or more, you can find our boards for hire in the Darwin hangar. Also, you will surely have the chance to meet our favourite ambassador: Seb Daurel, who always has tips for new Elwing riders.
