Shippagan lies in the province of New Brunswick on the Acadian Peninsula. Home to New Brunswick's largest fishing fleet, Shippagan Les Iles, has its own culture based on the fishing industry.

Shippagan offers a variety of riding locations that offer waves, glassy flat conditions and consistent winds. Shippagan Les es is an archipelago of three islands (Shippagan, Lame and Miscou) located at the very north of New Brunswick. The islands are very close to each other, creating lagoons where you'll find outstanding flat-water spots.

KPWT invites you to the first World Tour event to be held in this region, which is set to be a spectacle not to be missed.

Swim fins don't last forever - wear-and-tear is inevitable. However, you can always stretch their lifetime a bit by repairing the cracks that slowly appear in the rubber.
