Northern SUP

NORTHERN SUP was created by Brent Ackland, a long time water and recreation enthusiast. He started waterskiing when he was only 4 and was always the first one on the lake to try out the latest new water toys, shoe skies, wakeboarding and even the air chair Brent has mastered them all.  In 2011 he moved to Barrie to carry out his vision for Northern SUP.

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.
