COVID-19 Update

Due to Covid-19, our shop that has been located at 621 Main Street, Canmore for the past 6 summers will not be opening this summer.  However... we are now running rentals and lessons via mobile service, serving Canmore, Banff and area.  For SUP and kayak rentals, all gear is to be picked up and droped off at the Coast Hotel, in Canmore.  Look for our big red SUP van parked at the South East corner of the parkign lot.  Equipment can be be transported to your lake of choice.  We include all the needed equipment to transport your gear and all rentals include life jacket, paddle, leash, pump, roof straps, etc.  We believe we have the protocols in place to keep our staff and community safe.  Please refer to our rentals page for more info on our Covid-19 prevention rental protocols.  Thanks for your support and we can't wait to see you on the water.  Stay safe and healthy.
