Stand Up Paddleboards

Stand Up Paddleboards

Transport Canada, like the United States Coast Guard, classifies Stand Up Paddleboards as human powered vessels when they are being used for navigation. When being used within the surf zone for surfing activities or within a beach area designated for their use (e.g. Jericho Beach in Vancouver), these requirements are not in force. When undertaking a trip or circuit such as a group crossing or solo outing, this is considered navigation.

As human powered vessels, Stand Up Paddleboards are subject to all carriage requirements, including lifejackets. There must be one Canadian approved lifejacket or personal floatation device available on board and available for immediate use........... Transport Canada

If you have/get one make sure you are legal on the water
