In winter, Lake Annecy offers great conditions for stand-up paddleboarding during the absence of sailing activity. And when the weather is clement, the lake is a real water mirror! I chose the Itiwit 12'6 x 26 stand-up paddleboards because it's the narrowest in the 500 Trekking/Racing range, which makes it the fastest. With its excellent return, it is ideal for this type of body of water. The fact that it's inflatable is a significant advantage: you can pop it in your backpack! It's ideal for transportation and for making your way to the spot. And because I wanted to save energy before the race, I used the Itiwit electric pump that you can plug into your car's cigarette lighter socket. Unfortunately, it only goes up to 15 PSI, so I had to finish with a manual pump to reach the recommended 17 PSI. As for the paddle, there's no doubt about it. The Itiwit 900 carbon paddle was made for racing. Its spoon-shaped blade offers a lot of power. It is ultra-lightweight at only 540 grams, so it's perfect for frequent paddling which means you can go even faster. For hydration, the Olaian surfing water bag is ideal. It won't hinder your paddling movements in any way, and you won't even notice it thanks to its slimline shape.
