Suplove Ambassador - Heather Minns
Recruiting Coordinator, Human Resources, Blue Mountain Resort
What do you enjoy most about SUP?
SUPing is a sport that I can do solo or with friends. I don’t need to wait for a certain climate (except for the end of Winter!) to get out there…I can just GO! Being out on the water and feeling the warmth of the sun and the coolness of the water is truly calming and reenergizes me. The health benefits are just an added bonus!
What activities do you enjoy to do on your board?
I enjoy paddling on flat water the most. There are tons of benefits in doing yoga and fitness on SUP boards so I try and sneak some of that in too when I’m out cruising!
Where are your favorite places to SUP?
I live in the Blue Mountains, ON which is a beautiful place and surrounded by water however there is a private lake in Sauble Beach, ON that I love paddling on. One other spot that I loved paddling was the race course on the Ottawa River at the Owl Rafting Resort.
If money wasn’t an issue, what would you do? What makes you smile? What are your passions in life?
If I won the lottery tomorrow I would buy a cottage and/or home on the water making an everyday oasis! Travelling and SUPing in exotic locations would be top priority and a dream! My friends and family are what makes me smile the most. I would quit my job and spend more time with the amazing people in my life.
Best Suplove moment?
One of my favourite moments is touring around the Toronto Island for the SUP for MS event. The money from our registration went to a great cause and it was a fun filled day with friends!
One fun/quirky fact about you?
If you follow Blue Mountain Resort on social media or visit the resort, you will see me in some of the snowboarding and Bag Jump advertisements. Also, I can do a pretty good monkey impression!
