An Introduction to SUP Safety and Skills on Howe Sound

The goal of our Intro to Stoke lesson is to introduce you to the sport of standup paddleboarding on the ocean. We focus on three things during this lesson, ocean safety and awareness, technical paddling skills and an opportunity to build the skill set necessary and foundation for ocean exploration and touring. Led by certified Paddle Canada instructors and coaches this 2 hour intro is perfect for those who have never paddled before or for those who have paddled but want to tune up and improve their skills while building comfort on the ocean. The Intro to Stoke class is mandatory for those wanting to join our exploratory Coastal Stoke Tours.  Don’t worry about gear, we have all paddling and safety equipment  ready to go for you on your arrival for the Intro To Stoke Lesson. This is a great opportunity while learning to demo local businesses Red Paddle Co Inflatables, and Blackfish Paddles.

See you on the water!
