The Story behind Monster and Sea
Places to paddle
Paddleboarding brings you outdoors, into nature and activates every muscle in your body. As you are cruising along on your rad ride, taking in the views, enjoying the ocean air and some company (or not)…you won’t even realize the amazing workout you are getting! Paddleboarding is not only good for your physical body, but mentally and spiritually it grounds you and connects you to nature and maybe even your soul, so get out there and find your sanctuary! Here are some great places to get started:
White Rock Beach
White Rock is the home of Sea Gods. On a calm day you can see the ocean floor as you are paddling along. As you paddle around the famous White Rock pier you are likely to see all kinds of fish like baby halibut and maybe even a sea lion or two!
Standing on a paddleboard in the open water while facing the city of Vancouver nestled in the mountains is beyond breathtaking. It is also a great place to learn to paddleboard since it is a quieter area and as an added bonus, there is a sandy beach.
Whether you have thick skin, a drysuit or a wetsuit, you are ready for adventure and Sea Gods will be with you every step of the way. We take care of our paddleboarders, making sure they are equipped with helpful tips to fold and pack away your ISUP (thruster fins on top pointing to the side or front and leave the valve open!), handle your board downwind, paddle in all types of weather, we even hope to inspire you to dance on your board - it is after all, your platform for adventure!

At Sea Gods, we want your board to inspire you but we also want to make sure you are prepared for all elements of your adventure!
Mandy is the most encouraging teacher! She helps you find the confidence to push yourself further than you thought you could. I was so scared to try SUP but with Mandy by my side I had an amazing experience and cannot wait to try it again!

I Love my new iSUP, the waves and the sail boat are the prettiest artwork I have seen and everyone loves to tell me how pretty it is! I love that my paddle floats and I can go out far without falling in! I took it out on the river and it was really easy to get around and even better, light enough to carry back up the bank! It is literally so super easy to ride and the best board I have ever tried :)
