What is an Outrigger (OC) : 

The outrigger (OC) is a long, narrow boat equipped with a balance beam (AMA) that makes it easy to balance and very stable. There are one, two and six-seater boats. The paddles used are angled and rounded. OC's technique is very similar to that of the dragon boat. It is also possible to use a dragon boat paddle. 

The OC is a very suitable boat for beginners who have never paddled before. Thus, at your own pace and in a safe way you will gradually learn the joys of sliding and the individual technique required.

For advanced paddlers, you will find in the OC the possibility to increase your individual technique and fitness by learning how to "slide" an individual boat. The outrigger is also reputed to be a very good "testing" tool, an excellent way to test the individual performance of dragon boat paddlers.

What is a paddleboard (SUP)?

Stand up paddle, also known as SUP or paddle board, is a water sliding sport where the rider stands on a board longer than a conventional surfboard, propelling himself with a paddle.

Today, it is possible to encounter two different types of boards: rigid or inflatable.

Rigid boards are very similar to surfboards, allowing for a better glide on the water and therefore remain preferred in surfing or speed competition conditions. Inflatable boards are evolving every year towards better performance. Inflated at high pressure, the boards become rigid enough to carry a person without bending.

Anyone can practice it, beginners and advanced, from 7 to 77 years old, whether you are a man or a woman.
