Stand Up Paddle Boards (SUP)

Stand Up Paddle Boards (SUP)

Come and find out what all the fuss is about! Stand up paddle boarding is fun, easy and a great way to work the core muscles (tone your tummy).

If you are new to paddle boarding, you will receive basic instruction from one of our experienced staff. Your rental includes a paddle, personal flotation device, and an ankle leash that attaches to the board.

Paddle boarding is a water sport that often involves complete immersion (jumping or falling into the water). It is important to dress for swimming, without shoes or cumbersome layers. Wetsuits are available to rent and recommended during the shoulder season (April-May, September-October).

Maybe you would be interested in combining yoga and paddle boarding? We have an experienced instructor on Bowen Island and you can read about her on our Paddle Board YOGA page.
