Enjoy yourself on the water


Would you like to try out recreational water sports on a river or lake? Be it stand-up paddleboarding, water skiing or foilboarding with electric controls: discover the many recreational water sports offered on the Rivers of Western France. 

Learning to stand-up paddleboard

A very popular sport in France, stand-up paddleboarders, paddle while standing upright on their boards. This calm activity can be picked up as easily as canoeing-kayaking and holds in store many enjoyable experiences. Some boards are suitable for two paddlers, with some giant boards even able to accommodate eight people! 

Whether calm or energetic, a session of stand-up paddleboarding usually lasts between 30 minutes and two hours according to your preferences and skill level. You can try out stand-up paddleboarding on a river, but also on other bodies of water such as the Maine lake or the Gémerie lake. This fun watercraft is suitable for children from 8 years of age.
