Stand up paddle on the “lac de Villefort” in winter

Being more accustomed to practice the stand up paddle at sea, as well in Brittany, France or in California, as in San Diego, This day, it was the first time that I practiced in the lake. I had failed the practice on lake, the lake powel, Arizona, But the stand up paddle was an underfloor of the SUV, under our touring equipment, as we were coming back from Bryce Canyon and Zion Canyon. And we did not have much time.


Access to the lake is very easy, there is a ramp for small boats or canoye. It was possible to park the car right next to the access. We were the only ones, normal, it was winter and more, the day before Christmas. At 2.5 kilometers from the city center, Lake Villefort is a vast 127-hectare water plan.

The session takes on an air of Canada, with the forest and the mountains. We made part of the lake, about 1h30 mn. The wind began to rise, and unlike the sea, the wind spins between the mountains. So if we go with the headwind, it is very likely to come back with the wind from the front also And in stand up paddle, it can become a problem.

It was a nice session of stand up paddle on the Lake of Villefort – Castle of Castanet, in magnificent landscapes, in the heart of the Cevennes.
