Surf the Greats aspires to establish and foster community through the adventure of surfing and paddling the Great Lakes and beyond. We aim to unite Canadians from coast to coast and every lake and river in between. We educate, explore, and share through the medium of water, while reconnecting with the magnificence of this great country of ours.
Born from our passion of adventure and exploration, we honour and celebrate the power of nature. We are the culmination and emergence of a Northern surf culture founded in community, diversity, and conservation.
We are the winds of change; we are Surf the Greats.
We are located in the heart of Leslieville in Toronto, Canada. We carry a wide variety of products to support surfers and paddlers of all abilities. Our Red Paddle line up features the full range of Ride boards at 9’8, 10’6 and 10’8. For those who are feeling a bit more adventurous our touring boards include Sport and Voyager boards ranging 11’0 to 13’2. The compact series has been a game-changer in our community and we are excited to carry both the 9’6 and the brand new 11’0 Compacts.
Stand-up paddleboarding is a key pillar of our programming and we are proud to offer private, semi-private and group SUP lessons, group activities and corporate team-building events. We organize regular beach clean-ups where we use SUPs to get to harder to reach areas of our vast shoreline on Lake Ontario. We offer day and short term rentals of boards as well as the ability to ‘try before you buy’ through our Rent-to-Own program. Our staff are all highly knowledgeable on the full range of Red Paddle Co boards and enthusiastic paddlers themselves.
