Stand-Up Paddling

Everyone's curious to try Stand-Up Paddling, more commonly know as SUP's and the ORCC introduction program is the perfect starting point. The Ottawa River Canoe Club offers introductory sessions for those both young and young at heart to take on a new challenge.

Whether you just want to give it a try, or perhaps take on a session with a fun and social race to try out your skills, we've got a program for you. Our knowledgeable and experienced instructors will provide practical instruction and a fun and challenging workout, geared to your level of ability, in a small group instruction setting. You'll learn to tackle both flat water and the gentle (and sometimes somewhat challenging!) surf that the Ottawa River can present. Come try it out! We look forward to introducing you PaddleSport's newest passion.
