Stand Up Paddle Boarding and SUP Board Rentals

Stand Up Paddle Boarding

SUP Boarding is the fastest growing water sport in the world due to its accessibility, versatility and fun.

Stand up paddle boarding is a relaxing way to explore Salt Spring Island's many calm ocean waters. As a relatively new watersport, SUP boarding has its beginnings in Hawaii, as a way for 1960's surf instructors to help teach their students. Stand up paddle boards look a lot like standard surfboards, but are built longer and wider to allow the paddler to stand easily and paddle with a canoe-like paddle. Paddlers are connected to the board by an ankle leash. The fun-factor of surfing combined with canoeing's ease of use gives the stand up paddle board a wider appeal.

Meet at the Salt Spring Adventure Co. Ltd. office at the Salt Spring Marina, #7 - 126 Upper Ganges Road. We will launch from the beach in front of the Salt Spring Marina.

PLEASE NOTE: schedules are subject to change based on weather.
