Lanzarote to Fuerteventura: there's always the SUP...

Stephane Etienne and Nicole Boronat (“LeLovers”) recently accomplished the first SUP crossing between the islands of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, each riding a Naish Glide 14’0”.

The Lovers reached Corralejo Harbor wall at Fuerteventura, after paddling 14 km in 3 hours.

Stephane and Nicole are stoked to have been the first to cross the channel of “La Bocaïna”. Despite the waves, currents and the wind dying down, the Lovers say it was exciting, intense and an excellent experience.

Stephane and Nicole describe the crossing as being a classic downwind, “with a good north wind.” “We are sure that other SUPers will experience it,” say the Lovers. uses cookies to ensure you get the best experience on our website. Learn more on our About section.
