What is Stand Up Paddleboard?

SUP is an acronym that stands for Stand Up Paddling and originated in Hawaii with the use of a surfboard and long paddle in the ocean.  Today this growing sport has evolved beyond just paddling the surf at the beach, to navigating rivers, flat water ponds and lakes. Riders stand with feet placed shoulder width apart and engage abdominal & leg muscles to keep the board stable.  A single blade paddle is used to propel the rider through the water and in turn provides a great upper body workout. Come see what this sport is all about.  For beginners we feature extremely stable Jackson Kayak SUP boards.  These allow any rider from zero to expert experience a chance to get out and see Parksville Lake.  For those who wish to challenge themselves, hop on one of the Bote boards and engage those core muscles.
