PaddleFit Games | Barrie ONT, Canada


Welcome to the Games

The SUP world has been waiting for an event that is inclusive, fun, challenging and designed for all skill and ability levels. The PaddleFit Games has all of these elements. We are combining beach based challenges with SUP for an event that you do not want to miss. 

I was amazed at how much fun I had and how exhausted I was afterwards. The combination of the beach challenges and paddling was something that I had not experienced before. It definitely provided me with a sense of accomplishment.
