Long distance and Slalom Race

The long distance and the Slalom Race are a single format of race because it allows the

professionals and the amateurs to meet.

They are also enthralling because they combine many gravitational elements: balance,

speed, tactic of race and placement, self-control and various intervening elements: wind,

vagueness, running, kite and other runners.

The Slalom Race:

On the beach, 4,5 or 6 “Riders” or runners is placed on a “starting line”.

With the signal, they spring while running on the beach, board under the arm and

veils in the air.

During a “heat” very rate/rhythm and supported, the “Riders” must at the same time

be fastest, most precise, pass the buoys imposed on water in the course.

The spectacle is with go and the public present – even if he does not know that

partially the discipline – includes/understands very quickly and impassions itself for this rather

simple race: 1 departure, 1 arrival, 1 first, 1 the last, of the rate/rhythm, the brawl and

suspense until the arrival.

It really acts of a new single discipline where the spectacle is whole and intense,

where the pros face the amateurs, in a true sporting spirit where competition, control and

going beyond have their place.

The Long distance:

The practice is connected with the regatta in traditional veil, everyone leaves at the

same time. That the spectacle splendid, is coloured but where the spirit speed, technique,

tactic make place in the middle of the runners. The long distance becomes the Reine

discipline is very accessible to everyone.

1 departure, a course of several kilometres and an arrival. The whole which can be

played in several handles
