The SUP industry has taken over in most cities that have big bodies of water. Toronto is no exception with Lake Ontario on their back doorstep, residents are flocking to the water with their boards. Learn how two women have been pioneers in the SUP movement in Toronto.
How Two Women Are Bringing SUP To The People
SUP IS EXPLODING IN TORONTO.
It’s a warm fall day in my hometown of Toronto. The sounds of sidewalk life, traffic and streetcars filter through the door of the cafe where I meet Diana Lee and Janna Van Hoof. Over lattes we discuss their shared passion and the city’s hot, new summer pastime—standup paddleboarding.
The two women are at the forefront of a growing tribe. Almost 5,000 miles away from SUP’s Hawaiian roots, North America’s fourth largest city might seem like an unlikely hotspot for SUP culture. Yet, perched on the shining blue expanse of Lake Ontario, paddleboarding is reshaping Toronto’s waterfront access and the lives of its locals.
