Stand-Up Paddleboarding (SUP)
Originating in Hawaii, stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) is a new multi-dimensional sport, and the latest local craze, that involves gliding along bodies of water along coastal lines and lakes. This new take on traditional surfing has everyone standing for more. Not only does SUP provide a fantastic workout for core strength and fitness, it’s a fun way to get out onto one of Squamish’s pristine lakes, rivers and oceanfront.
Where to Go
Alice Lake has all of the ingredients for a stand-up paddleboarding experience including calm waters, mountain views as well as gear rentals during the summer months. For the a more adventurous SUP experience, try a morning paddle from Squamish’s Nexen Beach to Britannia Beach where you’ll be rewarded with marine life, Howe Sound views and a hot cup of coffee before you head back. A variety of stand-up paddleboarding rentals, courses and excursions are available.
