Stand Up Paddle Ghent

Le Grand Huit Gent

Stand Up Paddle with Le Grand Huit means Stand Up Paddle in the heart of the city
Why ? Because we want to practise this activity regularly and without the need to ride a car. And we love so much gliding among smiling city walkers, and discovering our city on a new way.

And your group  can now visit Ghent on a Paddle board ! If needed, you first learn how to practise with no fall at all, being more and more confident. And later you can come with us on the canals within this amazing city. Rather at the end of the day, when touristic boats have stopped, and when you see Ghent in the best lift : before the sun set. This is a dream ! 

Price is 29 € and your group needs to be at least 5 persons. Free for the 10th person of a group. 

Meeting point is  there

We wish you a nice Stand Up Paddle trip !  


This is definitely the summer of the scooter. In Lomme for the school children who pass the Grand Huit's scooter license, at Codifis whose employees try out our scooters for a month to get to work, at the Joinville le Pont summer party and of course during our famous guided tours of Lille and the historic heart of Paris.

Eight brand new crazy bikes have joined Le Grand Huit this 1st of may. Weird, rare, unknown, for some of them we don't even have found a name, yet. But this one is the Monster, presented by our brand new guide Elisa. Will she success on the bike ?? Welcome Elisa ! 

Inauguration of the brand new Paddling section of Le Grand Huit in Amiens this Week End 06/07th of april . No need to get to to Venice. You will surf at the foot of the Gothic cathedral and in through the unique maze of l little canals running through garden plots known as “hortillonages”. Whether you are an experienced paddler or just a beginner, you are welcome.
