The Open de Lyon organized by Raphael Fillipi and Beach Concept was the first event where the Naish ONE appeared. In a snap, 17 riders (out of 111) booked their Naish ONE board to take part in the event.
Coming by train to a SUP event or without roof racks was a great discovery for them, not even talking about discovering the Naish ONE.
All the riders seemed to have enormous fun : Pierre Yves Bodet fighting in front of the fleet (up to 12th/111) and everybody else discovering the interest of racing their new friends with the same board and making the difference by themselves.
Four races during the weekend (4km,4km,10km,2km) offered everybody a chance to get out there. Short legs turning around bridge legs made jibing the board as important as paddling.
Out of the water, The Naish ONE riders immediately created a friendly community among each other, sharing their racing and hassle-free Naish ONE experience.
Most of them already plan to have their own Naish ONE Board for the last ONE/NISCO event of the year : The NAUTIC Paris Crossing on December 9th.
During the week-end Severine Vasselin, founder of WaterTrek TV show (Nautical Hiking and discovering on a SUP board) cruised around in Lyon, getting ready to bring her Naish ONE anywhere in the world.
