your questions answered

Do I need intermediate stand-up paddleboard experience?

Yes! This is not a trip for novice stand-up paddle boarders.

The paddle journey into the park is about 3 hours long down a waterway with a lot of turns. You'll want to make sure to condition your paddling muscles before this trip, familiarize yourself with proper paddling techniques to turn effectively and not tire yourself out. That being said, this journey is not a race, we will casually paddle together.

Those registered for this retreat who are interested in learning and updating their skills before the retreat will receive 20% off paddle skills training hosted in Timmins by SUP Paddle Board Instructor, Sylvie Lamothe.

Can I join this trip using a canoe instead?

Yes! You have the option of paddling in a canoe provided by Driftwood Paddle for this weekend retreat. Canoes will be provided by Driftwood at no additional cost.

Can I rent a stand-up paddleboard for this retreat?

Yes! Rebel Soul has Taiga Boards available to rent for this experience. Please contact sylvie@rebelsoul.ca to inquire about a weekend rental that includes the board, paddle, leash, and PFD. The board will be ready for you when you arrive onsite at the retreat.
