01-g-cronstead-air-france

Last weekend Georges Cronsteadt took charge of the Air France Paddle Festival in front of all of his friends and family in Tahiti in the 24km Elite SUP Race.

The race began at Mahina (Pointe Vénus) with a downwind paddle which was definitely “difficult to navigate on a flatwater race board” said Georges.
