Meet the Whitewater Women Changing the SUP Instruction Industry By Lisa Stocking
Meet Reta Boychuk — founder of CANRVR SUP Instructor Collective based in Cochrane, Alberta, Canada.

Boychuk is a Kokatat and Badfish SUP paddling team member and a brand ambassador for Werner Paddles and Predator Helmets. She is also an all-around whitewater paddling enthusiast specializing in whitewater stand up paddling. And she has paddled a SUP, OC1, and kayak on rivers in Alberta, British Columbia, Colorado, U.S.A, Costa Rica, and Ecuador.
"Reta gives 200% in everything she does. She is passionate about safety, increasing skill levels, and maintaining our beautiful natural spaces while having fun." — Trish Rasmussen
But not everyone in the market to buy a stand up paddleboard or who is already paddling lakes and rivers has access to quality instruction, WhitewaterTV Executive Producer—Antoinette Lee Toscano noticed.
Toscano is the host and executive producer of the Colorado, U.S.A-based WhitewaterTV on the XOTV.me platform and on some Smart TVs. She identifies as an "all-around outdoorswoman," but on the water, Antoinette is an angler, kayaker, and a newbie stand up paddler on flatwater and rivers. In addition, Toscano is the architect of the free National' American Adventure Sports Clubs,' and a Kokatat, Badfish SUP, Watershed Drybags, and Team River Runner paddling team member. Recently, Toscano was appointed a City of Loveland, Colorado, U.S.A Parks and Recreation Commissioner.
Toscano's passion is ensuring that everyone has equitable, sustainable, and safe access to paddlesports and other adventure sports.
The confluence of technology and paddlesports
