MOTHER AND DAUGHTER LEARNING TO PADDLE BOARD!

PS. Thanks for the awesome photos.
A WELL RUN SUPKIDS SUMMER CAMP
Thank you, Ellen and Astrid, for a well-run SUPKID summer camp. Rain or Shine, the children thoroughly enjoyed every moment. There was plenty of activities both on and offshore which refined their paddling skills and newfound awareness of environmental sustainability. Safety and technical skills were at the forefront and your patience and care ensured plenty of progress.

WE HAD A BLAST!
Hi Astrid & Ellen!
Thanks so much for today teaching me and my sister! We had a blast and I’ve already mentioned you to a few of my friends for them to try it out.
I would love if you could pass on any images of today so we have proof we stood up on the paddle boards haha
WE’VE HAD SO MUCH FUN!
It’s Angela Kootenay from Friday’s morning lesson 🙂 thank you again it was so much fun! I was hoping you could send me some pictures so I could show my kids. As well as some information of places in Edmonton you could suggest. My oldest is very interested in starting as well.
Thank you again and was great to meet you!!
WHAT A DIFFERENCE TECHNIQUE MAKES
Who knew that technique makes such a difference! I’ve spent a lot of time on top of a SUP, but never had a lesson. Ellen took the time to walk me through the various techniques and I was amazed at how it transformed my SUPing experience.It turns out my natural tendencies made my back hurt and I would turn home sooner than I’d like. Thanks to Ellen’s instruction I’m easily paddling twice the distance with zero back issues, as well as turning and moving with way more efficiency. I would recommend everyone take a lesson – even if you’re already comfortable on top of a board.
EASY TO BOOK AND GREAT COMMUNICATION
A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE
I’M NOW HOOKED TO SUP
A GREAT WAY TO GET IN SHAPE
Thank-you Astrid for giving me the knowledge to get me started on my Paddle Board.
I’m in late 50’s and I wanted to do something that was outdoorsy and that was fun, and get me in shape. I love the water and thought Paddling would be awesome. So I bought a board. Then wanted to know how to Paddling Board. I knew nothing about it.
I contacted Astrid with Paddle Away Today. She was very helpful and knowledgeable, showing me how to get my board pumped up, as I bought a inflatable. Great safety tips and the gear you should have on your board and how to get up standing on the board.
I strongly recommend getting a lesson from Astrid or Ellen to get you started, or even to advance your skills and technique.
I am also going to take some more lessons to learn about the techniques of Paddling and advance my skills.
Its a great way to keep in shape!
The beautiful scenery at Ghost Lake Is Amazing!! Love it!
A FUN LESSON
What a great lesson! Both instructors where approachable, encouraging and most of all showed great patience. Thank you for a fun lesson!!!
MORE COMFORTABLE AND CONFIDENT
PADDLING IS NOW A FAMILY ACTIVITY
NOTHING FEELS BETTER THAN PADDLING, PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY
Needless to say that when I discovered paddle boarding I had found my niche! Nothing feels better to me than paddling on a beautiful lake, physically and mentally, as this is such a great workout and yet so incredibly relaxing!
I recently bought my own board and I love this so much, I can hardly wait for my next lesson. A heartfelt Thank You to my fantastic knowledgeable instructors Astrid and Ellen, who are slowly turning me from a novice into an experienced SUP-er!
See you ladies soon!

Thank you, Astrid and team!
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.
Elka L. & family
We had two amazing girls joining us for a one day SUPkids summer camp. They not only learned how to paddle board but also about safety in and around water, what affect plastic has on our environment and specifically our water ways and how to keep our waters clean. They clearly had a lot of fun and asked if they can come back for another summer camp. We’re looking forward to it!
I had my very first standup paddle board (SUP) lesson yesterday – and loved it! A big thank you to Astrid at Paddleawaytoday – an amazing, patient, and most generous instructor! More lessons and time on the water to come…

I do want to thank You. That was an awesome experience! I have to tell you that I am afraid of water and all my water activities is an effort to overcome this fear. You did great. Can I come back this Saturday?
