OXBOW Ambassador, Pierre Lopez presents the Dune Paddle Crossing
Imagine a rowing race between Lacanau and the Dune du Pilat. An oceanic marathon of almost 50km ... The Dune Paddle Crossing is the crazy project of our ambassador Pierre Lopez . Lifeguard in Lacanau-Océan, Pierre practices paddleboard prone in all conditions. He was inspired by the mythical races of the Molokai2Oahu in Hawaii and the Catalina Classic in California to create the Dune Paddle Crossing. Much more than a race, it's a real adventure where participants row between Lacanau's baïnes, Cap Ferret's tip and the Arcachon basin passes. More than 6 hours of effort in sight of the arrival at the foot of the most beautiful dune in the world.
Pierre invited his friends to make this first test edition, Ludovic Dulou, Olivia Piana, Mederic Berthe, Alexy Berthet, Antoine and Olivier Darrieumerlou. We followed them with the cameraman Pierre Frechou, to make you live from inside (and from the air) this incredible crossing.
