Want to learn to surf? No need to wait until your next trip to the ocean! Sturgeon Falls, Manitoba is a world-class river surfing destination ideal for aspiring river SUP surfers!
"River SUP surfing is surfing in its own right, every bit as fun and exciting as ocean surfing..."
River SUP surfing is more than just an ‘option b’ if you can’t get to the ocean! River SUP surfing is surfing in its own right, every bit as fun and exciting as ocean surfing, and with a very cool advantage! You don’t have to wait for sets. It doesn’t matter if you miss a wave. You just paddle back up and that wave is still there waiting for you! River surf means riding endless surf, on endless waves!
We hook up with local Sturgeon SUP Surf guru Brad Friesen and Neil Gilson of Bearfoot Performance Paddling out of Canmore, Alberta to bring you a comprehensive 3 day weekend River SUP and Surf course! Surf fun is our focus but we also review the theory and skills for safely handling a SUP in Class 1 and 2 rivers, and work on solidifying your fundamental river skills to set you up for greater success. And then we turn our attention to our main focus - fun, fun , fun while running and surfing standing river waves! As always, a key aspect of any river course is hazard and safety awareness, self-rescue skills, river reading and decision-making and we address these throughout all aspects of weekend course.
If you've ever wanted to learn to surf standing river waves, or if you want to improve your river surf skills at a truly world class site, then this is the course for you!
Special Warning: You will have lots of fun and you will definitely get wet during this course!
