I love exploring new places to paddleboard, so I created Paddle the PNW (Pacific Northwest) to share new places to SUP and help others get out on the water

Happy paddling!

Welcome to Paddle the PNW!


Stand up paddle boarding (SUP) is so much more to me than just connecting with the all the beautiful places in the Pacific Northwest. I fell in love with SUP because of the sports versatilityEvery time I go out, it's a different experience, I've gone crabbing and fishing off my SUP, attempted yoga, tried a 4 person board, learnt how to SUP surf, taught my 60lb dog who can't swim to come for a ride, competed in several races, and have gone on many overnight adventures with my hammock and tiny stove packed in dry bags.


I love getting out and exploring new places so I created this guide to share where I've been so far in hopes to inspire others who are just getting into paddle boarding. At first I was a bit hesitant about sharing my favourite places with the internet, but I strongly believe "You only care about what you know about". 

This website is all about where to go and how to get started with SUP.

Happy exploring!
