“Fun and professionalism are surely the two words that come to mind to summarize this fantastic training from KSF! Partnering with Juna Yoga (Yoga SUP component) and Paddle Canada (certified accreditation from a Canadian Agency), KSF is an excellent school choice for those seeking to acquire the skills required by the SUP industry.

In addition to receiving rich and relevant information from our trainers, the training took place in enchanting Mont-Tremblant!  We came back rejuvenated and confident about operating O’SUP, our SUP school located in Estrie.  Thank you KSF for sharing your valuable stand-up paddle expertise. We would definitely recommend this school above any other SUP training school in Quebec, because their trainings are given by serious people wanting to pass on their knowledge of the sport and make it thrive on our waters! Again, thank you!”
