With Nicolas Fayol

SUP Young Blood Camp Lac du Bocage

The first Young Blood SUP Camp of the year in France was a big success! With French rider Nicolas Fayol as coach, a group of very motivated kids enjoyed last Saturday on Lac du Bocage. The programme contained coaching workshops and a mini contest followed by a small prize giving. The feedback from kids and parents was very good, all participants were super stoked and are definitely keen for more.


Also our special Falcon Air Young Blood 12’6” x 22.0”  board model was very well accepted and all the kids as well as the club representaives were quite enthusiastic about the performance, accessibility, robustness, ease of use and storage of this board - and all of that for a very attractive price: -)


Thxs Team Fanatic France and Pirates Du Canal for organising and we are looking forward to more of this from the other countries as well!

Nicolas Fayol:


"Between the different divisions of the Boards & More group (SUP, Wing Foiling, Kiteboarding and Windsurfing) it´s very important for us to support young talents. The concept of the Young Blood concept is simple: Coaching young riders, best case combined with a small contest at the end of the event to challenge them. The main idea is to share good mood, knowledge and make the youngsters feel being part of the team. They are getting the chance to discover discover our sports and get the best possible advice to make progress. They are the future of our sports after all and strong value for us!

We really want these Young Blood camps to be accessible, so they are totally free of charge and with a limited number of places to be able to properly take care of each participant. We mainly want to approach the younger generation between 6 and 12 years, but can always seperate into two groups if we also have inquiries for older kids as well. The max number of competitors is 18 people."




During our Young Blood events boards and paddles are provided for all competitors. Our Falcon Air Young Blood 12‘6“ x 22“ Edition is designed for the next generation of SUP racers who want to focus on speed, training and covering long distances, the Carbon 35 Young Blood paddel is the perfect match!

The goal of the Young Blood programme is to bring young people into our water sport and keep them motivated. There is a growing interest of several water sports centers, so the Young Blood board and paddel are the perfect board for their demands as well!
