Paddle differently

Bleu loisirs, an original concept

An all-in-one offer : A trip on a top-of-the-range boat in a small group for a commented discovery of the rocky coast with initiation to stand up paddle and free swimming in the marine reserve.

In a shared or private outing, board a top-of-the-range boat from the port of Argelès-sur-Mer for a unique experience. SUP initiation in creeks with crystal clear waters, but also the discovery of a rich heritage along the way: Le Racou, Collioure, Cap Béar, the bay of Paulilles, the Marine Reserve of Banyuls…

The outing and supervision are of a high standard : a maximum of 8 participants on a boat that can accommodate 14. Comfortably installed with cushions, shower and sunbathing, each person has their own space and personalized supervision (diving masks are provided free of charge).

SUP is a complete gliding sport accessible to ALL. Good for the body, good for the morale, it solicits all the muscles without risk of injury. The only condition is to know how to swim. Your instructor will give you the basics to make you feel confident and safe. Thanks to the boat, the spot will be carefully chosen according to the weather to facilitate learning in calm water. Enjoy the feeling of well-being and serenity that comes from gliding through the crystal clear waters of a wilderness.

For an easy and playful practice, the chosen boards have important volumes. This can be the opportunity to share good times with your child on the same board.

Due to the limited number of places, reservation is strongly advised. Don’t wait any longer to get your fill of sensations in a relaxed and good mood!

The sport instructor

I am Olivier, your instructor. A native of the area, in love with the sea, I will share with you my knowledge of the natural and cultural heritage of our beautiful Catalan country, and of course my passion for gliding. And this, in complete safety. I have been coaching different sports activities since 2004 in France and abroad. I have the required diplomas for teaching SUP boarding and transporting passengers, which allows me to offer this atypical and privileged offer which will bring you the bases to make you a real rider.

The boat

Semi-rigid “Zar Formenti Suite Plus”
of 7.5 meters, 250 HP.

Our boat will satisfy the most demanding. It is approved for 14 people, but I have chosen to accommodate only 8 people so that everyone can have their own comfort space and a careful supervision.

In terms of comfort, all seats of our Zar 75 are in the direction of travel and offer comfortable cushions as in your own living room.  Space and volume are optimized with elegance and modernism. At sea, thanks to its long V-shaped hull, the boat provides a smooth ride. As for the unpleasant side splashes, there are none! To get wet, you have to get in the water !

On board, you will also have an awning to protect you from the sun, masks and snorkels (for those who don’t have their own), wetsuits (depending on the weather), sundeck, a fresh water shower, a swim ladder…

In short, whether you are with family or friends, everything is there to make your introduction to SUP an unforgettable experience.

Stand up paddle boards

Having the right equipment is an essential factor for success when learning an activity.

I chose the leading French brand in sports, Decathlon, which is always at the forefront of innovation and is an official partner of Bleu Loisirs.

To have fun immediately I chose a big volume board, the ITIWIT in 11 feet which combines all the qualities, very stable and easy for people over 80kg. The Dropstich making provides solidity and rigidity without forgetting a good quality of glide with its pointed shape, which makes it versatile whatever the water surface and able to cross the chop easily.

As for the paddle, you will be equipped with a light carbon ITIWIT adjustable paddle.

For more fun, you can even try SUP boarding with several people on the same board.

The interest of inflatable board is multiple, it is soft in case of fall and thanks to its quality of construction, it offers a very good rigidity and its small footprint makes it easy to use on a river or a tour paddle boarding.

For wave riding, I would recommend a rigid board that has more incisive rails for surfing.

Une matinée superbe passée en compagnie d’Olivier ! C’est un excellent guide pour découvrir la côte par la mer. L’initiation au paddle se fait dans la convivialité et la patience. La baignade dans la réserve protégée est un instant suspendu. A faire sans hésiter si vous êtes de passage à Argeles-sur-Mer.
