Witches and warlocks throw your brooms in the trash and bring out your stand-up paddleboard (SUP).

On Sunday, October 2nd two local witches are hosting Victoria’s first ‘What’SUP Witches’ group paddle at Thetis Lake.

All witches and warlocks of any age are welcome to this festive paddle to kick off this year’s scary season.

The organizers want the event to be a chance for attendees to meet fellow paddleboarders, enjoy the fall foliage and float the lake with their coven.

If you want to join the floating coven you can bring SUPs, kayaks, canoes or dinghies and should make sure they have their pointy hats, capes and all black clothing ready for the float!

The organizers ask that you please make sure you are an experienced paddler. 

They say all paddle levels are welcome and no one will be left behind, but this should not be your first time on the board and you should feel comfortable on a board. 

Attendees will have to paddle at their own risk. There will be no official instruction, leadership, liability, lifeguard, safety personnel or supervision at this event. 

There will be extra pointy witch hats for sale for $5 at Thetis Lake on the day of the event.

The group has also organized with Palli Palli Paddle a 25% discount for any witches and warlocks who want to attend. “Witches25%” is the code to use to receive the discount.
