CANRVRSUP has it's own definition of stoke and it's Amanda Albers. Amanda started working for us in 2021 as someone who instructs flatwater courses, shadows river courses, blows up boards, packs your gear, sends you emails, does admin stuff, takes really awesome pictures of you, is enthusiastic about anything and everything on the water etc. etc. and instead of giving her a super long title, Reta decided that it was only fitting to call her CANRVRSUP's Head of Stoke.
Amanda immersed herself into the world of whitewater kayaking and rafting in 2020. During a rafting trip in her favourite part of BC, she met one of the coolest people she has ever known, Reta Boychuk. Since then Amanda has only dreamed of being as awesome and as cool as Reta. But Reta knew Amanda could probably only be as cool as her if she started SUPing and working as a SUP instructor for CANRVRSUP. Amanda hasn't looked back since!
Amanda has fallen in love with the world of SUPing and enjoys teaching anyone and everyone! She has a passion for wanting her clients to have a fun & comfortable experience on the water, while growing confidence in their skill objectives. Having cerebral palsy herself, she likes to remind clients that even with limitations, there are options to modify your SUP experience to meet your goals, have fun and be stoked on playing in the water. Plus, if you tell her to fall in.. she likely will.
Catch Amanda whitewater kayaking, rafting and SUPing all over BC, Alberta and maybe even beyond that in the future!
