NORTHERN SUP was created in 2011 by Brent Ackland, a long time water and recreation enthusiast.
As a multi-dimensional retail, lesson and recreation business Northern SUP achieved a lot of success in its first 2 seasons, but Brent realized that his calling was introducing people to the incredible fitness benefits of SUP and getting them on a fun healthy path. Paddling alone is a killer workout, but what Brent found is when you combine paddling, progressive technique, on-land exercises and a healthy dose of consistency, the results were amazing (and his clients were having a blast). From this process in 2013, Brent has partnered with PaddleFit as their Canadian Affiliate along with achieving the level of PaddleFit Certification Instructor and Director of Education. In 2015 Northern SUP won a bid with the City of Barrie to open a on-water location at Centennial Beach on Kempenfelt Bay. Since then Northern SUP has now added an Ambassador Team, board rentals, additional programming and social events.
Working with PaddleFit will continue to develop programming that will push you to achieve your desired goals. All while maintaining a level of fun that makes SUP a part of your lifestyle and not just something you do a few days a week. Northern SUP truly believes in providing fitness at your leisure.
