Flatland skimboarding and stand up paddleboarding (SUP) culture has exploded in Parksville Qualicum Beach and today the area hosts some of the biggest competitions in the country.
Stand-up paddleboarding can be done virtually anywhere along the shores of Parksville Qualicum Beach. Parksville Beach has long and wide tidal pools, making it ideal for skimboarding. The area's sheltered waters are perfect for stand up paddleboarding.
Visitors can rent skimboards and SUPs in the area and take camps and lessons.
