Stand Up Paddle
For those who feel that they do not really like sport and say to themselves, ‘I’ll never do it, I have no balance, I’m sure to fall …’ For those who look at their kids and grumble, ‘what on earth have you got me into?’ Don’t worry! Just pick up a paddle and you’re away and sure to enjoy it!
A Stand-up Paddle board [SUP] is very stable; you will have no problems with balance. It is easy, and enjoyable … what are you waiting for?
We offer you 3 kinds of boards:
Family Paddle for 2 to 4 people
Giant Paddle for up to 8 people
Discover the Lake in total freedom.
We can provide Paddle lessons and also sunset excursions down the Mimizan Courant.
The Hawaiian pirogue in video
This traditional small vessel from the Pacific is stable and soundless and is the ideal way to discover the protected environmental area of the Aureilhan Lake.
During the course of 90 minutes, accompanied by a guide, discover and learn about the area and how its evolution and protection can be assured.
It is a serene activity requiring no physical effort. Don’t forget your cameras!
These craft can hold from 7 to 14 people and so are ideal for school groups, those with disabilities or reduced mobility and families with young children.
Enjoy a “Tales and legends” trip: set sail in the company of mythical creatures from Polynesian legends and the far side of the world.
