SUP in Paris: freezing cold

Paris is the romantic city located right in the heart of France. The capital city is far away from the Atlantic Ocean, but the Seine River can be the perfect spot for water sports.

In the beggining of December, the second edition of the Naish SUP Tour was held in the extremely cold conditions of European winter. Only 34 competitors were allowed to race the 10 km course across the Seine, from east to west.

The SUP enthusiasts even had to paddle through ice, before finishing the race in snowy conditions. In the end, Eric Terrien, Annabel Anderson, Gaetan Sene and Arthur Arutkin were the fastest athletes.
