Stand Up Paddle (SUP) boarding is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. Its popularity isn’t surprising considering the benefits: easy to learn; a relaxing way to get a full body workout; a dynamic balance challenge; accessible to all body types, ages and athletic abilities. And it’s even more fun when done with others!
Since it’s a new sport on Chandos Lake, why not organize a meet-up with other paddlers and spread the word on the CLPOA Facebook Group. Post lots of photos and send them to Elaine Bowers for the SUP Photo Gallery.
Here are some additional SUP activities on Chandos Lake:

Safety First – Be sure to tell someone your potential route and always wear a PFD (personal flotation device) or lifejacket of an appropriate size, bring a whistle and have a tow line separate to your ankle leash. And if you’re paddling after sunset or before sunrise or in periods of restricted visibility, carry a watertight flashlight.
