Safe and Secure


Whether you are planning to keep paddling through fall and winter or getting ready to hang it up for the season, we have some stuff you may need.  Here’s the top 5 things you’ll need to keep you and your board safe and secure.

Storage Racks: Store your board in the garage, house or wherever you have space.  Keeps it way from getting bumped, scratched, etc.
– > Available in three styles from Calfin:

  • Ceiling (U-shape)
  • Elbow (Angle Wall)
  • Rack style (L-shape)

SUP Board Bags: Storing and traveling with your board inside a Board Bag will keep it away from the elements (wind, rain, heat, flying rocks).  Great for traveling and storage.
– > Available in a variety of styles and prices:

  • Kalavida 10’8 (fits most all-rounders and 10’6 compact touring boards)
  • Kalavida 11’2 (fits most all-rounders under 11’4 and some 11’6 compact touring boards)
  • FCS 12’6 and 14′ Bags – (Best fit for most performance and touring boards)
  • Dakine 12’6 and 14′ Sleeves – Budget-minded protection for most performance and touring boards

Locking Straps & Locks: Kanulock straps can be used on the top of your vehicle racks or other places where you can lock up your board.  They include two sets of keys and come in a variety of lengths.  Simple and easy to use.  Or use a Dockslock to lock up your board with a cable.

  • Kanulock Locking Straps – Available in variety of lengths for 1,2, or more boards
  • DocksLock – Connects to the leash plug on your board with a long cable.

Cold Water Booties and Gloves:  Keep your feet warm while paddling on those cooler days in the fall, winter and spring.  5mm thick booties are good for early Fall paddling but the 7mm thick boots would keep you warm through late Fall and Winter.  A warm pair of gloves are flexible enough to get good grip on your paddle.  Use them for windier or wetter days on the water. Choose from a variety of sizes from Xcel.

  • Xcel ‘Infinity’ Series – Warmest, driest and most flexible


Paddling Clothing: Starboard has just released a range of paddling tops and suits for anyone looking to keep paddling through the Fall and Winter.  They include the new ‘All-Star’ Suit pictured below.

Cold Water Paddling with the All Star Suit

Lock up your board!


Keep your board 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 tie-downs with the added bonus of a key-lock and Stainless Steel cables.

Available in four lengths:

  • 2.5M / 8 ft
  • 3.3M / 11 ft
  • 4M / 13 ft
  • 5.4M / 18 ft

Inflatable Revolution


Want the ultimate portable SUP solution?  Maybe an inflatable paddleboard package is the best solution for your life.  If you are space-challenged or have a vehicle without a roof rack, an inflatable board kit can be stored in the trunk or backseat with ease.

With new developments in construction, most of the new boards can take up to 20psi and offer good glide and a smooth ride on the water.  They are light to carry, easy to store, and the perfect solution for adventurous travelers and those who live in condos / apartments / VW Vans but still want a good performing board.

What about the thickness?

  • 4″ thick boards are best for lightweight paddlers and perform better in the surf
  • 4.75″ to 6″ thick boards offer more flotation, stiffness and the ability handle more weight (think gear, kids, dogs, etc.)

We have a wide range of inflatables in demo fleet and for sale:

  • Starboard Astros – 9′, 10′, 10’5, 11’2, 11’6, 12’6, 14′ (up to 18psi)
  • Red Paddle – 9’6, 10’6, 11′, 12’6  (up to 25psi)
  • Naish – 10′, 11′, 11’6, 12’6 (up to 14psi)
  • Twin Fish – 10′, 10’2, 10’7, 11’6 (up to 18psi)

You are so Rogue…


Rogue returns to the forefront of SUP Design with their brand new 2015 quiver. Building on the success of their popular All-Water line, a new Blue and Pink series is now available alongside their classics line. Their performance boards (racing and touring) feature a quiver of updated shapes, new graphics and tons of useful features.  New for 2015, Rogue is now offering select models in their new R9 construction making them even more affordable.


All-Waters -Rogue has cornered that part of the market with their impressive line of graphic-drenched All-Water boards.  Notably the first SUP company to veer away from centered logos and traditional longboard lines, Rogue has been the innovator and one look at their boards will tell the story.  The best part is they back it up with industry-leading construction all at a reasonable price.  Available in 102′, 10’8′ and 11’2′ lengths.

Touring Series (11’4″ & 12’6) – Built to suit paddlers who want the speed and glide of a displacement style hull (think smooth and fast) yet portable enough for anyone to load without a struggle. It includes built-in tie-downs for packing gear on the front and back.

Utility SeriesLooking for a stable board for both flatwater and surf? The Tesoro line offers up both and although they’ve kept the look on the conservative side, the extra width makes them attractive to newbies and intermediate paddlers.

R1 Race (12’6) and Vandal (14′) – Coming off yet another successful test at the 2014 Battle of the Paddle, they have finally put their race boards into production and they rank among the flashiest on the market.  At around 26lbs, the 12’6 stock-class racer is a dialed production board with carbon inlay and it’s bigger brother, the 14′ R1 Race version is a stealth flatwater flyer.

GreatBear Touring Boards


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.Stand-Header 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.
