supsurf quickstart lesson

Learning to Stand Up Paddle Board with SUPsurf gives you a safe and easy way to start a new water sport right here in Toronto.

Why do we call our introductory lesson "Quick Start"? Because every step in your lesson is geared towards our goal of seeing you SUP-ing independently after just 60 minutes. With the help of SUPsurf's accredited instructors, most people do it. Sure, we keep it casual and fun, but our Paddle Canada certified instructors have the skills and teaching experience to make sure each SUP'r makes the most progress in the shortest time. The Quick Start Introductory Lesson teaches essential safety skills, how to balance, turn, and use the right paddle stroke for a variety of conditions. Get the most from your lesson - learn from someone who has experience teaching SUP- not just doing it.

Lesson Rate Card

60 Minute Quickstart Group Lesson - $40

Includes use of SUP Board, paddle, leash and PFD. Maximum of 6 people in a group class.

60 Minute Quickstart Private Lesson - $50

Sometimes you just want the instructors full attention - no other students or distractions. This is perfect for someone who:

  • needs a bit more time to learn or likes to take things slow
  • has a bit of trouble balancing on the board or getting back on the board
  • doesn't like learning in group settings - OR -
  • is athletic, wants to go 'beyond the introductory lesson' and wants to be challenged

Either way, we still keep it fun and expect to see you smiling and confident by the end.

Includes use of SUP Board, paddle, leash and PFD. (If you'd like to come with a friend, a semi-private lesson is $50 each)



Time slots for lessons/classes/rentals available from 8am to 7pm, subject to availability. Lessons run 7 days a week, weather permitting.


Most lessons start at Kew/Balmy Beach, but sometimes we'll use another nearby location depending on wind and water conditions. See map.


We use rigid boards exclusively, typically 10' 6" to 11'6" long, by 32" wide to give you the best chance to master the fundamentals in your first lesson.

Followup Lesson - $20

If you'd like a 2nd lesson, it's only half the cost of a regular full-price lesson. Followup lessons are not on our regular booking calendar. Instead, please email us at:   This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it to let us know when you'd like to go. We'll get back to you right away.

Be sure to download and print SUPsurf's Waiver/Release form as soon as you book your lesson/tour. Fill it out, sign it and scan it (or fax) back to us completed! This will save setup time and you'll get to spend more quality time on the water.
