From the foot of the Eiffel Tower in the middle of the salt marshes, the favorite spot of the French wakeboarder on his “Tour de France”, was the Château de Chantilly. “It was really magical, the setting is incredible,” says Jules Charraud. They spent the day there and they took pictures from right to left, they were never bored. A representative of the castle followed us and advised us on the site. Big thanks to him that I was able to ride in the moat. ”
The project required a lot of upstream work from the wakeboarder and his team, especially for the selection of places. For the spots, two criteria: visual and aesthetic spots and performance spots, but it is still necessary to succeed in obtaining all the authorizations. “It’s a must, it would be a shame to make pirate spots for the end not to be able to post the video,” explains Jules. But in general we didn’t have too many difficulties, for example in Romorantin, the mayor only asked us to “watch out for the ducks! “
