At CANRVRSUP when we’re not teaching on the water, we are living and breathing paddling through experiences.
Life isn’t about how many breaths you take, it’s about how many moments take your breath away…
Our own team member Lisa Stocking began her river journey in 2020 by paddle boarding from her home near Athabasca to The Grand Rapids, an expedition of 200 km. Taking her two and a half days to do so. She was solo on her SUP, but her husband also came along as her safety and shuttle home in a jet boat. This inspired her to want to see the whole Athabasca River system in its entirety.
In the fall of 2020 she set the goal of paddling from Jasper to Athabasca in 2021; with the support of the CANRVRSUP team her and Reta set off on this epic adventure together for the first five days self-supported on their Badfish Selfies!

1. Starting July 10th try and get on the water every day for at least 30 minutes.
2. Enjoy your paddle time, breathe, relax and explore!
3. If it fits with your journey share your paddle #riverofhope22 @love_nsup @project_allin
When Lisa is done this section she will have completed 1217 km of The Athabasca River system and all that remains is the 134 km section from The Grand Rapids to Fort McMurray with many rapids between. The CANRVRSUP team will be there next year in full force on a raft supported SUP descent of this section!
