“Having taken PADDLE CANADA courses at two different locations around Montreal, the one offered by KSF is by far the most complete, the most advanced and simply the best. Participants who obtain their certification really have to meet PADDLE CANADA’s standards.

Being the owner of a SUP school myself, it is reassuring to know that future teachers meet the basic needs of this Canadian organization. Not only is Hugo a great paddler, he also possesses excellent pedagological skills for teaching various techniques. KFS’s trainings are well structured and their years of experience are reflected in every single aspect of the certification course.””
