  • Meal on arrival (oysters, wine, and other regional delicacies)
  • Return (including the equipment), from Dune du Pilat to the departure point at Lacanau-Ocean beach





The number of participants will be limited to 20 paddlers. The Dune Paddle Crossing is not a race, it’s an adventure to be shared by a group of experienced people paddling together. For these reasons, after reviewing the applications, a homogeneous group of paddlers will be selected. The event is only open to 12” Prone Paddleboarders.
