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’ll need including soft racks, locking 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 -

Our Okanagan Demo Centre has a huge selection of Inflatable boards for demo
and rental. If you are considering an inflatable, we can show you wide range including recreational, tour and race inflatables from Naish, Starboard, Fly, Red Paddle and SIC.
If you are space challenged or heading to another country, then this might just be the solution – They are light to carry, easy to store, and the perfect solution for adventurous travelers and those who live in condos/Apartments/VW Vans who want the full experience without the transportation challenges.
4″ thick boards are best for lightweight paddles and perform better in the surf – The 6″ thick boards offer more flotation, stiffness and the ability handle more weight (think gear, kids, dogs, etc.) They have less flex than thinner boards which translates into better overall glide. A full range of Demo boards are available daily
What’s in stock?
See them all in our inflatables section of the board rack.Tagged naish alana air, naish inflatable canada, Naish Mana Air

Here’s some info from the Boga website:
At Boga, we live and breathe Stand Up Paddle Boarding [SUP]. If we are not out on the water riding our paddle boards we are here working hard designing the next best board shape and paddle so you can. Our sport, a gift from the
ancient Polynesians, has been spread by rider’s passion across the globe.

The Boga team is proud to offer an affordable, high quality line of stand up boards designed to meet the widest range of use in today’s most popular paddle board disciplines.

Whether you cruise lakes or paddle surf, the Boga team has designed a quality stand up board and paddle to meet your needs.
New Boardworks Greatbear touring boards along with the Raven and Sirena now in stock. The ‘Greatbear’ is a collaboration with Canadian team ambassador, Norm Hann, and is designed to be the ultimate tour and expedition board. Read more here –
Inspired by Norm’s conservation efforts, Boardworks has pledged $20 of the sale of each Great Bear board to be donated to StandUp4GreatBear, a non-profit organization that promotes awareness and encourages the protection of Great Bear Rainforest through “expeditions, partnerships and action.” THE ISSUE: Enbridge Inc, a Calgary-based oil
and gas company has proposed the construction of a 1,170 km pipeline running from Alberta’s tar sands to Kitimat on British Columbia’s west coast. From here, crude oil would be loaded into super tankers bound for Asia. Before reaching the open ocean, these tankers would first need to pass through some of the most dangerous navigable waters in the world,―the narrow inlets of the Great Bear Rainforest. If this happens, a devastating oil spill is inevitable that would wipe out one of the most pristine marine environments on the planet.

We are stoked to introduce a new line to the shop this year. Fanatic has been making boards since 1981 and while their SUP line is relatively new, their new Falcon Downwind/Race and Flatwater boards have being receiving international attention.
Where do they come alive? The Falcons are the perfect board for downwind cruising, choppy waters and all-round racing/touring – Whether it’s a downwind run in
Victoria, Okanagan Lake, or wherever the wind blows. The Falcon ‘Flatwater’ line is designed to go even faster in calm to mild choppy water. In addition, we’ve also added their 12′ Fly Touring inflatable to keep you mobile. A limited supply will arrive in late March to kick off the season – Here’s what’s available >
