The Top Places to Stand Up Paddle Board in Georgian Bay
If you’ve been on a stand up paddle board, then you know how much fun it is. It’s an amazing workout (without feeling like it), it’s a great way to enjoy the natural setting and landscapes of our communities, and it’s the perfect way to spend an afternoon…but first you need a board. Lucky for you, we’re giving one away this Summer! Visit our contest page to enter for your chance to win.
We got the SUP board from Blue Surf, a great local business. They sell and rent SUP boards and kayaks, and have the largest selection of stand up paddle boards and Summer gear in stock on Georgian Bay.
