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.  Introductory programs, Yoga classes to advanced racing and river surfing clinics.  As well Paddlefit offers equipment rentals and sales.  The sport is easy to learn, and is a great way to stay fit on the water.  Paddlefit has it all to help you get into and develop in this great sport of stand up paddling.




Program introduces the novice to paddling a paddle board on calm sheltered water. Activities focus on individual safety, basic paddling skills, and the knowledge required to confidently pursuit this sport.  With us you can now attend any of our more advanced courses or on your own.  Our goal is to get you quickly standing and confidently paddling your board.
