Volcano Ride - Eric Deguil

Logo realized and edited by for Eric Deguil (Adrenagliss team rider)

Since two years Eric plans to go to Cape Verde to make a kayak descent on a volcano, this year will be good!
We'll see our friend in Cape Verde, an archipelago located off the coast of Senegal, on May 4th to 11th 2009.

The challenge is simple take a kayak on the ashes of the volcano and go down. The volcano is the Fogo located on Fogo Island.
Many slopes are possible. The largest is nearly 600 meters and 40 ° slope!!

But Eric doesn't get things like everyone else. In this crazy adventure, Camille De Faucompret (Member of the French female snowboard team) joins him, and Eric will stay in the footsteps of this one for a unique descent.

If all goes well Eric will try to establish the speed World reccord in a kayak, it will be the bonus of this trip.
We wish to Eric and Camille all the best for this funny adventure!!

Corsica Kayak Festival 2009

Light Painting at the Jasper 21st birthday party in Porto, west coast

We were in Corsica with my brother Gautier from April 4th to 19th to paddle this beautiful region.
This trip was really nice!
The week of April 11 to 19 took place on Corsica Kayak Festival, organized by the magazines Kayak and Canoe Kayak Session Magazine.

At the port of Toulon we join Jasper Polak and Raoul Collenteur directly come from Holland.
When we arrived we joinMat Coldebella, Romain Dumoulin, Jules Domine and Alex "jaket" Besseau in Francardo to paddle the upper Golo.
During one week we explored rivers and landscapes each more beautiful than others.
Lots of great moments on the water and out! ;-)

Friday 10th, Gautier and I left the group to join the team Kayak Session at the camspite Ernella half way Cortes and Aleria.
Our second week was for the filming the new Kayak Session video-guide of Corsica.
Always lot of good moments on the water with this new team and very good moments in the evenings at the campsite.
The group was composed by Simon Hirter, Tyler Curtis, Phil Hausamman, Marc Gacond, David Arnaud, Raph Thiebaut, Celliers Kruger, Stefun Pion, David (USA) and of course Philippe Doux.

The program of the Corsica Kayak Festival was simple: no program!!
Everybody was paddling where he wanted and we were all together in the evening at the campsite.
The initial aim of this festival was the defense of the beautiful Rizzanèse river condemned by a dam.

A big thank you to Philippe Doux for the invitation on the shooting and all kayakers with which we enjoy the beautiful Corsica!!

Gautier and I finished our two weeks by the superb Rizzanèse river, which is condemned by the construction of a dam.
Unfortunately no picture because it was raining ... :-(
