So you have established a good set of core skills. Now you want to get out on the River? Well, from river floating, to touring, to running whitewater, to river surfing - stand up paddling on our wild and scenic rivers is simply an amazing way to get outside! Get going by developing solid river paddling skills and safety knowledge!

You can’t learn to run until you can walk! In river paddling progression is very important! If you can’t effectively ferry your board, pivot and eddy turn, and understand how to use the current to your advantage, then you can’t safely run whitewater, or learn to river surf... at least not very well.

Choose the course that is right for you.

Safety Notes!

We’ve been paddling moving water for more than 35 years and we’re going to be honest about it. River paddling should not be taken lightly. It’s kind of like skiing into avalanche country… even though it looks nice, what you don’t know about, and what you don’t pay attention to can be very, very dangerous.

 

In surf lingo, a surfer who doesn’t know what they are doing, and puts themselves and others in risky situations is known as a “kook”. River SUP is the same. Don’t be a river kook – get the skills and knowledge that you need to have fun and stay safe while exploring and playing on our amazing Canadian waterways!
