- Lina Augaitis - (SUP)
I love to race, teach, and complete expeditions on the SUP. In 2011, I was the first to SUP 715km of the Yukon River from Whitehorse to Dawson, then in 2012 I was part of a group of people that were the first to SUP the 32km channel from Koh Lanta to Koh Phi Phi in Thailand, and in the summer of 2012 I was the first to SUP a popular 6-day canoe route in Algonquin Park.
August 2011, I moved to China for a year. A year away from SUP made me realize how much I missed it. Upon my return to Vancouver, August 2012 I have immersed myself in the world of SUP and haven’t looked back.
I look forward to what 2013 has to bring. I am excited to race, teach, explore, inspire, and discover as much as I can while standing up!

- Laura Lee Demers - (Whitewater – Kayaking and Canoeing/Kayak Fishing/SUP/River SUP)
Laura can regularly be found bouncing down the Chilliwack River on her SUP, sometimes her canoe and often her kayak.
She has also become a regular part of the SUP racing scene.
In addition, as the sport of Kayak fishing has exploded she has caught on to that too.
Amongst all of her paddlesport accomplishments it is worth noting that Laura was the first person to do the 116km Bowron Lake Circuit on a Stand Up paddleboard.
