What is Stand Up Paddle ?
Stand Up Paddle is a water sport derived from surfing. You don’t have to be the king of the wave to steer your board. This activity is very flexible to use and does not need neither waves nor installations, or even a great mastery to be able to provide you with the pleasure of a nice ride on the water. Open to everyone, Stand Up Paddle is a great way to test your balance, to practice sport gently and sheathing his whole body but also to challenger on the water !
Our paddles are particularly stable and all you need is a little balance to paddle quietly on the lake, standing or kneeling on the board, and admire the landscape in complete serenity.
