Manwunko Paddle Tours
We're pretty fortunate to call Vancouver Island home. We're also incredibly fortunate to be part of a sport that is growing in all kinds of exciting ways. The stand up paddle boarding community on Vancouver Island is a vibrant and growing one. Check out what one of our peers up in Cambell River has got on the go!

We're at it again! We've paired up with our partners in ohm One Yoga Victoria to offer another Summer Sup Yoga Series. Sessions will run every Tuesday and Thursday evening June through the end of August (weather permitting). It'll look something like this:
There are a lot of notions of health buzzing around out there.
Eat less processed food. Exercise more. Shake supplement that... do you even lift? Drink more water. Most of it is sound advice. We love to pair up with local like minds. It creates community, and helps all that buzzing advice a little easier to peer review. All that makes one avenue of life a little easier to navigate.
Although there is a world of incoming messages to filter, we are capable of doing just that. We can navigate the heck out of that! We find the tuned in bunch filters what they want into their life.
Life is about choices.
For us at SUP Victoria, SUP yoga is not a prestigious class for the yoga elite. It's not a money grabbing attempt by another eco tourism company. It's not a choice to do what's hip and cool.
It is a period in time, Tuesday and Thursday evenings June through September where you can chill. out.
Everyone is welcome: beginners to instructors, locals to visitors... all can enjoy the best shavassana ever. It's simple;
Get. On. Board.
$35 drop in. $200 8 session punch card pass ** valid all summer

Every now and then the internet surprises us with a gem. Today's gem is pretty fantastic. SUP Surfing with Bulldogs to Ethiopian Jazz. Who knew?!
Do you roll? We do. We also take hydration pretty seriously too. Why not blend the two together?
The folks over at Mobot have blended both together in a nifty foam roller encased bottle! Fore more information check out their website here
Can you imagine hanging out in a hammock while floating over your favourite body of water in Victoria BC? We can... check out Hammocraft!
The Hammocraft frame can be used on Stand Up Paddle Boards, as well as on land. It really is the ultimate adventure hammock frame!
Hammocks and SUP's oh my :)
Jake Collard is making waves. Big waves. The thought of surfing mavericks terrifies me. Jake is gonna do it on a SUP. Check out the preview below for a taste of some beautiful shots and marvellous waves.
Craftsmen and Artisans are incredibly talented people. Their creative drive inspires and enables people to do more. Chet Frost achieves this with every board he crafts. His boards are beautiful works of art that can only be described as boards with soul. They have feeling, and heart.
Anyone who enjoys surf or SUP can relate to the undeniable emotional connection board sports enable riders to enjoy. We are made from water, and we know how to play in it. In many ways our boards are out instruments.
Check out the video below for an inside look at what Chet does. He's a Vancouver Island Local, and his boards are BEAUTIFUL!

Did you know that as a SUP navigating (aka paddling) waters in canada you MUST wear your life jacket or pfd? We did.
Did you know that if you don't wear your life jacket/pfd you must have a 15m(50ft) buoyant heaving line? We didn't. If you didn't know, now you do! Stay safe whenever you get. on. board.
Here is a kickstarter campaign for a nifty little pfd.
We hope to stock these next season for all of our paddlers.
