Nothern SUP is a exclusive YOLO Board dealer in Barrie, Canada, owned by Brent Ackland, who just had a podium finish –3rd Place, 12’6″ – 7 Mile Mens Elite – at the Soundsurfer Waterman’s Challenge!
Brent has worked and trained alongside one of the top watermen in the world, Brody Welte, creator of Stand Up Fitness and the sports first certification, Paddle Fit. Often visiting Florida and learning the ins and outs of SUP from one of its most recognizable players has given Brent a plethora of knowledge on the sport and its Hawaiian roots. Once he stood atop a board and experienced the serenity, excitement, challenge and all around good time that paddling gives its participants, he knew that he wanted to share this lifestyle with others.
A multi-dimensional fitness and recreation business, Northern SUP is fully insured, and explores the waters in and around Barrie, Wasaga Beach and Georgian Bay by paddle. Whether we are giving SUP lessons, providing rentals, or discovering the area through our Adventure Tours, Northern SUP is on the water and loving every minute! SUP is the true meaning of FITNESS AT YOUR LEISURE.
