Oswen Corbel is an island lover. He grew up in St Pierre et Miquelon, next to the Island of Newfoundland. There, he had his first contact with the sea with his father, sailing and fishing. Then he moved to Corsica in 2000, and stayed in Reunion Island for 2 years. Back in France, he successfully passed his BPJEPS, options sailing and kayaking. He finally arrived in St Martin – St Maarten in 2008 to work as sailing and kayak instructor in Orient Bay. After several months in this terrific place, he decided to start Caribbean Paddling to offer kayak tours around the island. The tours visit the best of St Martin – St Maarten. At the end of 2010, he launched his paddling "base" in Cul de Sac. After one year with only his truck and a trailer, his base became a reality in early 2012. Oswen splits his time between the beach of Cul de Sac and his favorite activities: windsurf, stand up paddle, surf, kitesurf and sometimes wakeboard! If you don’t find him on the beach, it's because he is exploring new places!
