2016 Durance Whitewater Sessions - June 16-19th

Post by Kayak Session » Wed Mar 09, 2016 10:32 am

The Durance Valley Whitewater Sessions - Rabioux, June 16-19th 2016, FRANCE

Based on the same principle as the late Corsica Kayak Session festival, The Durance Whitewater Sessions is a gathering for kayaks, open canoes, whitewater sup, class 5, beginners, clubs, groups, individuals!

If you want to discover the whitewater paradise that is the Durance Valley with no less than 10 amazing rivers within less than 30 minutes drive, or you simply want to come back to one of your favorite place to paddle ... this is the right event for you.

There is no entrance fee and the motto is (as it was for Corsica) “the plan is no plan”! All who come know they will find info, fellow paddlers of the same level, the latest boats and equipment to test out, and people to share stories and local products.

The Durance Valley is rich in whitewater, with no less than 15 runs from class 1 to class 6, and there is for sure something for everyone. You can also book your guiding services and a campsite on the banks of the Rabioux with secured boat storage, and the legendary Rabioux wave will be re-built starting in March.

Yes the Rabioux is back! Join us for this inaugural edition!

Sounds a great get together.

Dave Arnot, Dave Hewitt and myself plan to be there - on our way back from Montenegro.

Anyone else going to be there?

Hey everyone, we're just back from a week end of preps on the Durance. water levels are at their prime... also if you come, and have room, make sure to take also your playboats as La Clapière wave is cranking!
Regarding the festival, we have sup clinics, safety clinics, OC1 float scheduled, a few kayak schools will be around too (need a guided trip down there? contact Simon Westgarth > http://goo.gl/A0xV00 ) and all the usual ingredient movies, local beer, and BBQ ready! back to kayaking... the Guil, the upper Durance, the Guisane, the Ubaye and all the classics are pumping for the heros, and the several sections of the mighty Durance for the chilled crews...
See you there - June 16th (5pm ish) through Sunday...
if you come with your kids, mini golf + kids garden with swing set for the kids....
