Paddlefit has been Ottawa’s number one stand up paddling company for more than 5 years. Originally starting as a kayak and paddling instruction operator, Paddlefit evolved into stand up paddling, or SUP. The popularity of SUP has emerged as a global sport, with a Hawaiian heritage.
With certified, professional instructors, Paddlefit offers a wide variety of SUP programs for people of all ages and abilities. The sport is easy to learn, and is a great way to stay fit on the water. From lakes to rivers, currents to surfing rapids, yoga and GoSUP programs, Paddlefit has it all to help you get into the great sport of stand up paddling.
