We are proud to present “RUGGED POINT”, a remote adventure in one of the most beautiful place on earth.

Spring Island, one square kilometer of wild forest on the rugged west coast of Canada.
The MANERA athletes settled a small camp and lived there for seven days, looking for wind, waves & adventure.

We ended up on Rugged Point Beach, untangling our Kite lines over bear tracks.
One morning Etienne found his neoprene boots devoured by the wolves. We surfed with a whale...

Even if the conditions are sometimes rough, changeable & unpredictable, we would not exchange our seats for a more classic destination. Cold weather, adventure & lack of comfort create lasting memories that only those who have experienced them can understand.

Our mind still shivers at the memory of these sessions,
Our hands are still shaking at the frozen memory of that water.

Starring: Pauline VALESA, David TONIJUAN, Paul SERIN, Camille DELANNOY, Etienne LHOTE.

Kai learned to kite last year at 8 years old. Her hydrofoiling is currently at the stage where I say “Kai, try this” + she just does it. And we already have hints at the next stage where I’m hammering away at trying a new trick + she sees it + just does it + says “Uncle, how come you can’t do this?”
