"The idea is to hold heats of four kayakists who all start at the same time and complete the course with maximum water flow (the equivalent of a class 4 river) as quickly as possible. There are no rules. Anything goes, apart from the use of firearms...:)
The first two finishers in each heat go on to the next round, and so on until the final.
This is a technically difficult race, because this kayak is not like the model designed for downhill races that top kayakists are used to. It was designed for advanced kayakists who go touring on calm waters at sea, on lakes and on rivers.
All the competitors had time to get to know the kayak by making several practice runs before the competition.
The winner left with an Itiwit X500 kayak donated by Decathlon Pau.
I took part in the competition (see photo opposite) and I managed to reach the final, where I finished third. I really enjoyed myself!"
