Stand Up Paddling (SUP) is the fastest growing water sport in Canada. Have you tried it yet? Paddling offers an amazing water experience suitable for ALL people. The fluid feeling of water on your feet creates an amazing floating sensation that calms the body and eases the mind. The rock and stability challenge of the board adds some extra fun to the paddling journey and the scenery is something you won't see anywhere else. Because SUPing is upright you can gaze deeper into the water and discover things you typically don't see in other paddling sports such as kayaking and surfing.

This is an amazing floating Yoga experience that you must try! By using the SUP boards we integrate more core and strength into the class which is a fun challenge for everyone from advanced Yogi's to first timers. The water is a real treat as we also get to release more tension and stress by utilizing the water for it's calming effects and floating sensation. This fluid practice will leave you strengthened, challenged and rejuvenated.
WHAT TO EXPECT
SUPing has a surprisingly quick learning curve and caters to a wide range of levels and styles. No matter your water experience or fitness you WILL be able to paddle! All classes teach you the basics of standing up and paddling around- whether you be daring, go fast or mellow out is totally up to you. You will have numerous options and choices throughout your entire class. After 10 seconds of Elvis legs you will be cruising around like you were born on the board!
WHAT TO BRING
Because the water is always a few degrees cooler than land, dress in layers and warmer than you think! You will want to wear something you can get wet in and something that will dry quickly. Board shorts or athletic pants, t-shirts, sunglasses, barefeet and a hat are great options. Bring a towel and a warm change of clothes for afterwards. Remember you might get wet and things like jewelry and sunglasses can fall into the water so leave the pricey stuff at home!
All classes meet at the Ocean River Sports dock
