COMPASS ADVENTURE OCEAN Racing Academy Stand-up Paddlers have a busy season ahead of them.

Stand-up paddlers busy

Locals will be competing in a number of events this summer

Young paddlers are training hard here in the Comox Valley in preparation for the upcoming racing season.

“Our training programs are fun, but they also encourage youngsters to be fit and healthy,” notes Stu Robinson. These paddlers will be attending races in USA, mainland B.C. and of course the now famous Vancouver Island Stand up Paddle board race series, now in its seventh year.

“Our paddle programs also introduce them to OC 4 – outrigger paddling,” Robinson said. “Both disciplines have their roots in Hawaii and we also teach the paddlers the respect for the environment and traditions that are involved in paddle sports.”
