SUP is fun
Stress is something never associated with the word 'fun'. Paddle boarding innately lowers stress levels, allowing you to find your fun, excitement, and freedom by getting out on the water and exploring your adventurous side. Ride the lake waves or simply glide along at your own pace, and make SUP what you want it to be.

A small change can have a huge impact
All over the globe, youth is learning about the importance of environmental care. Often, these lessons are taught from the monotony of the average classroom which makes it challenging to give it the impact it needs. Let's be honest, did you care to learn about environmental health while staring at the sky outside the classroom window longing to get outside when you were a kid? To get kids more involved, PaddleAway.today organizes summer camps to teach kids ages 7-12 about water safety and environmental health by using Stand Up Paddle Boarding. We offer 4 half-day summer camps. For more information click here.
Organic, native and urban
Regular sunscreen is one of the harmful products that end up in our waters and is harmful to our reefs. The PaddleAway.today team members are using JaiVenSkin sunscreen which is organic, native and urban. The certified organic ingredients are free of artificial chemicals and synthetic preservatives. And for every JaiVenSkin sunscreen stick bought through PaddleAway.today, we give 10% to Ocean Ambassadors Canada. Our way of giving back. For more information or how to order, click here.
I got my first SUP lesson from Astrid at PaddleAway.today. Right away I was hooked and took a couple more lessons. She also advised and helped me buy my first paddle board which I love. My next step is to get my dog to come with me paddle boarding. 🙂
Hi Astrid & Ellen, Thank you so much for the awesome first experience on the paddle boards! It was a blast and I can’t wait to get out there again! Maybe not in a thick black wet suit🤪. I really appreciated sharing your safety tips, skills and knowledge! Hope to see you Saturday👌☀️ Cheers to calm waters, Sherry
I'm a golfer, love long rides on my motor bike but have never been a water sports person unless it was a motorized boat. I heard about Paddleaway.today from friends of ours but thought I was a bit too old to start this new hobby. When my friends booked a 55+ lesson at Paddleaway.today they convinced me to come with them. I honestly have to say that we had a blast and it wasn't the last time that I've been on a paddle board. If you're thinking of trying it out, I can recommend Paddleaway.today!
Astrid and Ellen are great instructors. They explained all the basics and safety of paddle boarding in great detail, listen to their students’ questions and patiently answered all of them before taking us out on the water. Once on the water they stayed close to ensure we could handle the paddling and the board sufficiently. And while having fun trying to get everything under control both kept providing encouraging feedback and suggestions. All in all it was a very fun and enjoyable introduction to paddle boarding. I will certainly go back for another lesson and more feedback to get better at it. Thanks Astrid and Ellen for a fun evening and enjoyable trip out on the water.
Thank you, Astrid and team! It was a pleasure and my son and I truly had fun! We’ll definitely recommend you, and we’ll probably be back! I will keep you in mind when I’m ready to purchase a board – it helps with a pro’s advice! Again, thank you so much!
Astrid is a fantastic instructor who takes time to explain everything very well and covers all aspects of training and general knowledge. She paid especially attention to safety in and out of the water. It is a joy to learn from such an enthusiastic and passionate person.
