Vernon is becoming famous for being a Bike & Board kinda city. And naturally, you would think of summer when you could go for a bike ride in the morning followed by a sunny SUP session on the lake in the afternoon. We’ll just assume that you didn’t think you could do it in the Winter… but you can! Join us for our Winter Chill Paddle on Kalamalka Lake on December 14th followed quickly by a warm and cozy visit to the shop complete with Hot Chocolate, Music, Prizes and good times. Paddle departs at 2pm!
We’ll be open from Saturday, December 14 thru to December 24th. And we’re always open by appointment through the Winter and keep the shop fully stocked. In addition to a full range of boards and accessories, the shop is fully loaded with surfwear and tiki bits too. We also now rent inflatable boards so you can take them with you on your winter vacation.

Heading off to Mexico, Hawaii or somewhere else warm and sunny this winter and still want to paddle? You’re in luck – You can check-in an inflatable board as part of your luggage and you’ll be able to get your SUP fix anywhere you go. And if it’s not in your budget yet to own one, we now have them available to rent this Winter and take with you.
We carry a wide range of all-rounder and touring inflatables from Naish, Starboard, and Boardworks in a variety of lengths, each with it’s own convenient back-pack style travel bag. Each rental package comes complete with a 3-piece adjustable paddle, travel bag, pump and frisbee. Just check it in as part of your luggage (you only need flops, shorts, bikini and T-shirts in the other bag right?) and you take it anywhere in the world. The backpack weighs in at around 26lbs (or less) after you throw in the paddle, frisbee and a pair of flip-flops. Call or email for availibility.
Which one is best? – That will depend on where you will use it and also the weight of the paddler(s). Some of the designs have more ‘rocker’ in the nose and/or tail – this allows them to catch waves better while others have reverse camber so that they perform better in flatwater conditions.
Boards come in a variety of lengths and many now feature 4″ and 6″ thicknesses – the 6″ thick boards tend to have more volume which provides more stability and float for anyone over 170lbs.Tagged inflatable sup, inflatable sup for sale b.c, naish one inflatable, rent an inflatable sup
You are now free to move about the world… with your paddleboard in hand. With many Canadians setting course for sunnier destinations like Hawaii, Mexico and beyond, you can take your SUP with you.

They all include travel bags, pumps, detachable fins and patch kits – Just add a 3-piece paddle and you can check it in with your other luggage!

A huge ‘THANK-YOU’ goes out to everyone who supported our shop and the many events we held throughout the season. From those who enjoyed a rental or two, to those who decided to purchase their own board and everyone in between. As much as we’d like to keep the dream alive with sunny skies and warm water, we know that the weather is now playing a role in the transition to Fall and things have become very quiet around the beach these days.

If you travel often and plan on taking your board with you on longer trips, you may consider a travel bag and locking straps to keep it clean and out of harms way. For all higher-end boards including race boards, touring boards and anything made with carbon, a Board Bag is an essential part of your equipment. Same goes for all-rounders when it comes to traveling long distances. During the summer, heat can play a big factor and in the fall and spring, rocks and debris on the road can cause the damage (much in the way they crack windshields).
Look for bags with quality zippers, straps and clips. Most bags come with a shoulder strap. Bags that offer 3/4 or full zippers are the easiest to load-in and load-out your bags so you may consider that a handy feature as well. We carry a variety of board bags to protect all types of boards – each with their own set of features. We carry the following:
STORING YOUR BOARD:
If you are looking for a way to store your board safely, consider using a racking system to keep it away from busy areas. We stock the Calfin ceiling racks that easily mount to your ceiling or wall. All hardware included. $65.00 / set of 2. In stock now.
Did you know that two of the events at the Kalamalka Classic are focused on the Naish One? Yup – You can even rent one of their 12’6 One inflatables for the Recreational Race, WikiHolo or even the Kalamalka Crossing.
If you’re looking to purchase one, we have a limited number of them just in time for the Long weekend. The board has been very popular this year along with other inflatable boards. If you’re interested in renting or purchasing one, call the shop to reserve one today.
NAISH ONE PACKAGE INCLUDES:
You might be looking to get into the sport but wondering how to transport a board (0r two), or at the very least get it from the shop to your place. A permanent rack on your roof is the long term solution but to keep costs down, check out the FCS SUP Soft Rack system. It attaches easily to most car roof-tops and is easy to use.
We stock just about everything you need including soft racks, straps, board bags, SUP wheels, glow lights, leashes and more. Plus, we can ship across the country. Just call the shop to find out more. Here’s a peek at what we have available -
Accessories for SUP:
Accessories for the Beach:
The water is warming up quickly and the rental season is already in motion. Daily rentals are available on Kalamalka Lake or you can rent boards and take them to your own private destination. Here’s a great opportunity for anyone who thinks they might want to rent more than a couple of times this year! We now have 4 and 6 pack RENTAL PUNCH PASSES in stock -
All you have to do is pay for the card up front and we just punch it when you show up to get a board. Saves you valuable time and money (almost $50 for the 6-pack!) Plus, the new Okanagan Rental & Demo Centre is now home to the largest rental and demo fleet in the region. Click the 6-pack for more details>
