A small family run company. Being half French half English and playing in or on water most of their life, the name of the company came naturally. Whether it is in the river, the sea, the bath or frozen they just love playing with water.

Their moto "it's not just work, its a lifestyle".

They share their passion on the rivers of their adopted homeland and are always up for  new adventures.
