Stand Up Paddle Lille

You can now try and practise this sport without having to drive to the sea

The trendy spot, accessible and easy, it is here in the city ! 

Regular paddlers : Our club is part of the French Surfing Federation. Annual member ship to Le Grand Huit (25€) + Surf FFS License (35 €) . You can use the club paddle boards with additional annual forfait of 120 € (or 70 € from 1st of August) 

Meeting sessions for regular on Saturday 2 pm and Wednesday 7 pm.

Beginners : It is a little scary the first three minutes, and then you get confidence and see that it is finally easy. It is great sliding standing on the water, and even taking the time to enjoy the scenery and greet stunned walkers. First steps followed by an accompanied trip lasts 1h45.  

Usual scheduled beginners sessions are from may to september Saturday 4 pm and Wednesday 7 pm, for groups.

We are proud of our success rate (without fall) over 90% of beginners lessons. Obviously you can be part of the 10% and it does not matter, just plan towel and change of clothes in case. You will wear our buoyancyaid jacket. We paddle in shorts and barefoot, except in winter when combined suit and slippers give more comfort. But we like either to welcome you with your party dress or your kilt.

Price is 26 € per session



The tour of Greater Lille is a new cycling itinerary that we have concocted for you, 70 kms, that is to say five hours of pedalling, linking the famous landmarks and large parks of Lille. It takes place on signposted bike trails, and through the suburban countryside.

Come and test the waters! And above all the Paddle Festival, whatever your level. Our routes are superb, and ... right into town. Join us on several Sundays in a row: May 14th  in Joinville le Pont, June 4th  in Amiens, and June 11th June in Lille and with our Belgian friends.

On Earth Day, our fun bikes will hit the stage in Marseille. We will be happy to see young and old having fun on our bikes for this april event. Because cycling is not only good for the planet, but also so much more fun!
