Whitewater paddling the stunning French Alps

Whitewater paddling the stunning French Alps

Definitely one of the advantages of whitewater paddling is the beautiful scenery you get to paddle through. The clear waters in the French Alps have to be up there with some of the best and most stunning paddling locations in the world.

Fanatic SUP paddlers Raf Filippi, Bertrand Fourtias and friends have put together this pretty cool video of their paddle.

Onto the discovery of wildwater SUP in the French Alps – an initiation journey through torrents and rivers with an emphasis on pure air, génépi and serious waterfalls! Discovering torrents and rivers with a SUP has recently become a classic for a lot of paddling addicts. The French Alps are turning into one of the most renowned areas of the discipline, this to our greatest pleasure since it is less than two hours drive from where we live. The craze of wild water SUP practice is just beginning and it gives us the opportunity to meet passionate riders hidden deep in the mountains.’ Words : Fanatic SUP
