Rains early this year have greatly swollen the waters of the Rhone, the Saone and the Doubs. Despite freezing temperatures, kayakers are given away to heart’s content on the biggest waves of France. So we went in Beaucaire in the south-eastern with a handful of friends.
The water had already begun to decline, but the Roger’s wave, as it is called, was still in water to be really fun.
The first day we had a beautiful wave vertical all smooth but impossible to take the freestyle boat. As a minimum provision of this kind of situation, we brought a surf kayak and a stand up paddle kindly lent by 2Imagine and ABYS Kayak Shop of Pau.
Jo, surfing on the smooth wave.
Nico, surfer mode
The next day, the water had fallen further, the foam has appeared on the wave, freestyle kayaks come in the dance. The wave is not huge, but there is plenty to enjoy and have fun.
Nico and Jo
See you soon on the water.
