Advanced Flatwater SUP Skills

August 17, 2017
6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Already learned the basics? Take the next step and build on your existing SUP skills. Our 2.5 hour advanced stand up paddleboarding skills course teaches you skills and knowledge to safely paddle inland waterways with wind and waves. Skills covered include pivot turns, draw strokes, foot positions, upwind and downwind paddling, edging, bracing, and more!

Paddlers will be awarded with the Paddle Canada Advanced SUP Certification, which prepares you for our other SUP skills courses, such as our introduction to river course. Also included is a one day SUP rental on any day of your choice, so you will have plenty of extra time to practice your new paddling skills!

Warning: You will have lots of fun and you will get wet during this course!
