WHAT IS HYDROSPEED
Hydrospeed is a water sport born in France in the late ’50s as swimming in water following the current. Subsequently the homonymous float, a small bob, was introduced in order to protect the athlete from collisions with rocks and to offer a point of support. It is an activity that provides a close contact with the water. It is practiced, therefore, on water descents equipped with fins, helmet and life jacket.
