We are excited to announce: Paddle Canada is developing a Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) program for release next spring!
In case you do not know, Stand Up Paddleboarding uses a large surfboard and a long canoe paddle to travel on oceans, rivers and flatwater while standing. SUP has a long Polynesian history, but has seen a recent explosion of interest on all types of water bodies. In fact, paddleboarding is reported to be the fastest growing watersport in the world!
Paddle Canada has formed a small group to develop the SUP program. The program will include participant levels, as well as instructor and instructor-trainer programs.
We are keeping the program development group small for efficiency’s sake, but we are seeking input and ideas from the widest possible range of existing and future SUP instructors.
