Back from the Red Bull Heavy Water Event in California with an excellent 7th place, Arthur Arutkin just organised a SUP clinic for young people in collaboration with Red Bull and Fanatic France close to his home spot Wissant. The clinic took place on Saturday, November 18th, at the Wimereux Nautical Center and Sunday, November 19th on the Deûle at the Citadel of Lille. Two days of full programme with motivated youngsters, who were able to benefit from Arthur’s professional advice and participate in an exceptional training with him and his Coach Greg Closier. Erwan Bordier from Fanatic France was present as well to provide the boards for the competitors and represent the brand.
Twenty participants were selected for each day of the clinic. The conditions were pretty tough with 20 – 25 knots wind from the west, rain and only 10 degrees on Saturday in Wimereux, however some sun on Sunday in Lille.
The clinic was a great opportunity for the selected participants to get deeper into the sport and maybe even enter the competotion scene. Arthur and his team were able to supply all essential aspects of the professional practice of Stand Up Paddling first hand!
