Finistere surfski Festival Minicamp

The Concept

This is a minicamp, the little sister of the FSF that takes place in June. The leisure weekend is a weekend aimed at those who are new to the sport of surfskiing, and those who are looking to transition from Sea kayaking to Surfski paddling. Saturday we will share in the cozy snug of Barrachou Paddle where we will share some drinks and talk about how to predict your best Surfski Session!

The Coaching and Downwing is for those who are looking to have fun in downwind conditions, whilst being coached.
