March 20th marks the first day of spring, and with it, SUP season right around the corner. Like us, chances are,  you are eagerly getting ready for the start of paddle season. We have been scouring our lakes and rivers daily, looking for ice-free water to get our boards into. Although, most lakes and rivers are not ice free as of yet, it doesn't mean we can't start anticipating the coming season and start planning accordingly. We have some great events and paddle days planned for the season and we hope you come out this summer to join us.

To all our valued customers we are currently offering 10% discount on all lessons, rentals and tours by using the promo code: springsale.

My name is Brandon Olsthoorn, owner of Bow Valley SUP ( Bow Valley Surf (  SUP and Surf is my passion.  Everytime I hit the water with my board I am genuinely excited and happy.  My goal is, and always will be, to get as many people onto the water as possible and spread the stoke! 

Getting onto the water starts with a board and the right gear.  Which is why I am so excited to launch our new Online SUP/Surf shop!

There are millions of SUP and Surf brands out there and finding the right board for your needs can be a daunting task.  This is why we only carry a handful of premium brands that stand above the rest.   Every product in the shop are products that I have personally tested in every condition the Bow Valley can throw at me. I have charged rivers, suntanned with friends, river surfed waves and hiked my board to mountain lakes.  So I know that every product is going to stand up to anything you can throw at it! Take a peak at the shop, browse around and make sure you keep coming back.  2018 is going to be a HUGE year for amazing new products from @redpaddleco, @boardworkssup, @kootenaypdl, @libtechsurf, @softech and @badfishsup.  Feel free to message, email or text me about any questions about any product.  I want your experince with your new board to be excitng and long lasting.  And FREE SHIPPING across Canada for all our proucts.
