1-Who are you? Since how long and why do you practice the Stand Up Paddle?

My name is Amaury DORMET and it’s 35 years that i am paddling. I started with the rowing with a very good level as athlete and then as a coach for 15 years, this was my job. Then, i needed some change and it is the ocean water paddle activities anowered to my expectation. Surf Life saving, prone paddling, outrigger canoe, Stand Up Paddle, and now foil. So it is 20 years that i am exploring all kinds of paddle activities who slide on and with the ocean.

To not be specialist don’t stop me to perform. I must have a national podium with all these activities and did some good performance in 2018 into 3 different sport federation.

2-Can you tell us about the Ocean Paddle Camp? It is for who and what are we doing?

In 2018 i start a down wind center in Brittany with the Ocean Paddle Camp. The concept is to offer to each paddler a way to learn and progress on all different paddling activities such as SUP, prone paddle and outrigger canoe. We organize week and weekend training course with a team athlete guess who is reinforcing the management. Everyday, we intervene about paddling technic, physic exercise and adaptation to the ocean environment.

The peninsula of Crozon is a wonderfull location who i perfect to enjoy paddle activities. The past saison, 62 paddler come to our training camp. Crozon/Morgat is located in the middle of the Brest harbor, the bay of Dournenez and the Iroise sea, we can slide every single day of the year.

With our partnership, Ocean Perf, Swell Addiction Brest, Side Shore, Glazsea à Morlaix, Direct Sailing la Baule et 3 Bay we also suggest to try a lot of material , included in the training course. One great opportunity to test the new things from some of the big brand of paddle, boards and outrigger canoe.

But ocean Paddle Camp is also a big house in Morgat, 200 meters from the beach, with all confort and facility a paddler dream off. (Gym room, sauna, drying space…..)

3-The Glaglarace inspire you?

I can’t wait to discover the Glaglarace. I heard a lot as a great event. I also organise myself some event in the Crozon peninsula, some nice race like the Presqu’île Paddle Race or the Morgat Waterman Challenge who are ocean race. So, yes, very curious to see about this this race who is very different of what i know. I think i will learn a lot.

And this year, Glaglarace is also a partner of the Ocean Paddle Camp that will allow one of the participants to win an internship. We are very happy about this partnership, it’s a bridge between our 2 county for the same paddling and sliding passion.
