 The team : whitewater trainers and instructors

Pierrick SEPTEMBRE, Founder and President of Rando Aqua Réunion comes from a family very committed to the white water world, born to parents both in the French team, he has been practicing canoeing since his childhood. He has won several departmental and regional champion titles in Aquitaine, which gives him significant experience in competition. It was natural that he headed for a complete professional course with a BAPAAT and a monovalent canoe kayak BPJEPS. He then materialized this experience by obtaining the IRF Safety Kayak Cl V in Chile, which led him to share his experience in many countries around the world (Norway, Sri Lanka, Argentina, Spain, Italy, Morocco), mainly in hurricane, snowmelt or monsoon period.

Pierrick SEPTEMBRE has been actively involved for five years now in the development of canoeing on Reunion Island by setting up practical training for whitewater instructors, as well as by organizing river competitions such as the Champagnole trophy, the Run Kayak River Tour, and the Regional Downhill Challenge.
With his national and international experience, he has developed skills in terms of safety, initiation, training, activity analysis and the implementation of personal development techniques adapted to athletes.

Currently, the Rando Aqua Réunion company has 3 qualified and qualified employees, all very invested in white water practices.

The Marsouins river has its source at an altitude of 2492 meters, on the slopes of the Piton des Neiges, and extends over 30 kilometers, crossing the town of Saint-Benoît, to reach the Indian Ocean.

When it crosses the Bébour-Bélouve forest road, it is joined by a multitude of tributaries whose flow varies according to rainfall.
Leaving the forest of Bébour, it arrives at the heart of the Takamaka valley located at an altitude of 800 meters. Its flow is then increased by the many rivers that feed it.

The average annual flow recorded in 2019 is 10.03 m3/s, it is an increase compared to the old readings dating from 1995 (9.57 m3/s). About 6 to 7 meters of rainfall are recorded per year, making it one of the wettest places in the world.

In the Takamaka valley, the river is marked by two hydroelectric dams Takamaka I (1968), located downstream and Takamaka II (1987) upstream.
There are then several waterfalls that can reach 40 to 50 meters in height. Among these: the Citron Waterfall, the Hole Waterfall, the Ginger Waterfall, the Rainbow Waterfall.

Many tributaries feed the river such as Bras Patience, Bras Cabot and Bras Magasin (on the right bank). When it leaves the Takamaka Valley, the Rivière des Marsouins has almost reached its average annual flow. At this level, many ravines join it: the Fouquet arm, the Canot arm, the Mussard arm.

Two islets are located on the downstream course of the Marsouins River: Coco or Danclas islet (which hosts 70 to 80 homes) and Bethléem islet. Offering superb natural landscapes, these islets are very popular for picnics. The river is an ideal setting for the regular practice of nautical activities such as airboating, canyoning and rafting.
