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 -
Accessories for SUP:
We are now offering payment plans, SUP Lay-A-Way and Winter storage options.
1. Payment Plans - Need some time to pay off a new board? Make payments on any new board purchase and we’ll store it at the shop until you are ready to complete the purchase and pick it up. This allows you some time to cover the full cost of your purchase spread out over time. Kinda like SUP-Visa without any nasty fees or charges.
2. Free Storage with any board purchase - Purchase a board between January 1, 2015 to February 28, 2015 and we’ll store it for free until April 30, 2015.
Keep your boards safe on the roof of your vehicle – The Kanulock Lockable Tiedowns are extremely simple – they work exactly the same way as a regular set of tiedowns with the added bonus of a key-lock and Stainless Steel cables.
Available in three lengths:

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.
You can now watch the documentary film STAND on Netflix and see the trailer by
Tahoe SUP has established itself as the leader in the touring SUP market and have mastered the design of boards that truly come alive in touring conditions – a perfect choice for inland lakes and mild ocean choppy conditions. Their boards are nicely complimented by a function-driven line of custom accessories that includes paddles, fins, packs, apparel and the Buddy Pad, an attachable non-skid pad for your dog.
For 2014, they have introduced a new Sport Edition for both the Zephyr and Bliss models – They include refined shapes, more volume and a new graphic touch.
New Boards will be arriving in early March.

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 inflatable sup
Kalamalka Lake is widely recognized as the Okanagan’s most pristine watery playground and has become a popular destination for Standup Paddleboarding (SUP) in the province. With the increase in popularity comes a level of responsibility to help maintain the lake’s colourful and clean waters. Kalavida Surf Shop is proud to announce a donation of $1,500 to SPKL (The Society for the Protection of Kalamalka Lake) to help with their efforts to educate, activate and inform the public about the various issues that continue to challenge the watershed.
The 18-km freshwater lake is enjoyed by all types of water sports both motorized and human powered and as public usage increases, so do the challenges of keeping it clean and safe. Kalavida is an ongoing partner with SPrKL and is proud to help protect and preserve what many consider one of the best places to paddle in the region. Many of the local paddle boarders are members of the society and act as ambassadors throughout the year.
“Our events and activities have helped establish Vernon as a destination for the sport so with that increase in activity, we felt it was our responsibility to take a proactive approach” said Michelle Mitchell of Kalavida. “Our shop is across from Kalamalka Beach and that allows us to monitor it each day throughout the busy months.” The donation helps the Society pay for a variety of tests and activities that help keep the lake healthy and safe. The local watershed is popular for all types of local recreation and acts as a source of drinking water for residents in the region.
The SUP community as a whole continues to dedicate efforts to a variety of environmental causes – A group that includes two of Kalavida’s own ambassadors; Bob Purdy (SUPLove/Paddle for the Planet) and Norm Hann (Boardworks/Standup for Greatbear). The 5th Annual Kalamalka Classic SUP Festival is scheduled for August 30 & 31 and will serve as the primary fundraiser for SPKL in 2014.
