With dry conditions approximately 20 participants accompanied by a safety crew took to the water to test their skills and enjoy the serene surroundings of the Swiss Valley reservoir.

Before the event, the safety crew conducted a thorough safety briefing with all participants, volunteers, and organizers.

The event was a great success, with participants praising the perfect weather. It was a fantastic opportunity for paddle boarders of all levels to come together and enjoy the sport in a safe and enjoyable way.
