What is Ocean racing ?
Ocean racing is a sea kayak marathon. With 7 to 45 km distances, races take place on rough waters or deep see from island to island. Specific kayaks are used, called surf skis. These are sit-on-top, self draining and unsinkable. With a length from 6 to 6.7 m for .4m wide, they are designed for speed and deep sea surf.
What is stand-up paddle ?
Stand Up Paddle (SUP) is a sea sport at the crossroads of kayak ocean racing, surf and windsurf that seduces every lover of sliding sports. SUP races are between 10 km and 25 km long downwind, in which you need to master balance, strength, and a tactical reading of the sea. This year, Défis Paddle Destination Guadeloupe will host the best paddlers of Carribean, as they measure themselves against Dowmwind of Guadeloupe. This competition will be spiced up by the presence of the best French paddlers. An interesting paddle battle is going to be seen !
