Sun, turquoise water, all conditions were met for a SUP and WingFoil session in the Glénan Archipelago. Located in the south of Finistère (29), these islets with white sandy beaches, in the middle of translucent waters, are a real haven of peace. It’s enough to make you imagine yourself in a tropical destination, an hour’s boat ride from the Finisterian coast. Louis-Arnaud and Marine, our ambassadors, have captured a few images of their day’s sailing, which definitely make us dream. We let you admire the paradisiacal landscapes of Brittany in this video.
Wherever you go in Brittany, you will always find a way to practice Stand-Up Paddle, Wingfoil, Foil or Kitesurf. The region is full of incredible playgrounds, including some heavenly spots. The biggest advantage is that all year round, you will always find conditions to practice a snow sport. And if they are not there, you will almost always find something to foil!
The foil is similar to an underwater plane that will create a lifting force, thanks to the speed generated. If you want to know more about how a foil works, please refer to this article. No more crowded waves, the foil will allow you to fly on the water and surf the swell, far from the world.
WINGFOIL & SUP IN THE GLENAN ARCHIPELAGO
SROKA Company is based in Finistère, near Brest. We surf, row and fly with the products we design. It is a pleasure to see you sailing a SROKA on our local spots. The ocean and water sports are our passion, and our goal is to share it with you, by making these sports accessible.
THE QUIVER OF MARINE AND LOUIS-ARNAUD IN SUP & WING FOIL
In this video, Marine sails a SUP Malibu 10’6, and flies our SROKA Air Inflatable Wing Foil pack in 5’3. The SROKA Air inflatable board is the perfect compromise between ease of transport, storage and performance, solidity and a glide that has nothing to envy the rigid. The 5’3 will be perfect for the lightest riders (70Kg and less), allowing them to evolve, to take off, to pounce, with comfort and without difficulty. The Malibu Stand-Up Paddle is ideal for beginners to SUP, for riding, or for surfing small waves. Fusion Technology makes it one of the strongest inflatable boards on the market, while remaining light and versatile.
Louis-Arnaud sends jumps with our Sky Rider 5’2 board, the S-Foil 1750, and the Wing SROKA in 5m. A foil board made in France (in Brittany), in fiberglass and full sandwich hull. This 5’2 rigid board will offer light beginners the opportunity to learn how to foil, and advanced riders the chance to experience huge performance and speed. The Mid-Aspect Ratio of the 1750 fin will ensure stability, lift and speed for all levels.
