About Us

SUP BC was formed by a group of representatives from various aspects of the SUP Community.  Within the society we have representation from Elite Athletes, Retailers, Distributors, Reps, Race Organizers and Recreational Racers. We also are open to feedback, ideas and suggestions from anyone within the SUP Community.

The SUP BC Society is made up of:

  • Mike Darbyshire
  • Kevin O’Brien
  • Gary Parsons
  • Nikki Rekman
  • Stuart Robinson
  • Lina Augaitis

Additional feedback and consultation with:

  • Catherine Salinas
  • Taylor Fulde
  • Norm Hann
  • Jason Lexa

By supporting a selection of events within the province we hope to provide a level of consistency and organization at each of the events.

The events are chosen each season based on a variety of criteria including but not limited to:

  • Location distribution throughout the province
  • Historical success of previous events
  • Sport growth in new areas of the province
  • Dedicated race organizers
  • Unique locations that represent the variety within BC
