Paul Peic runs Paddleboard Addict
I’ve known Paul a long time. I took that picture of him above by snapping a shot of my own TV screen using an older model digital camera set to record night shots. Paul was on CBC Dragon’s Den at the time, a groundbreaking venture doc series in which he appeared in 2009 alongside three other entrepreneurs in a clever cell phone contract crowd-sourced program engineered to lower rates called MyCellMyTerms, which was years ahead of its time, but ultimately failed to make any money.
Today Paul runs stand-up paddleboarding school in Toronto from his floating house in the Brimley Marina on the east lake shore.
Paul is a serial entrepreneur with a hard body and a big heart. He made quite a name for himself in the early 2000 as home renovations and house flipping TV star for a couple of different DIY television shows. He discovered Stand Up Paddleboarding a few years ago and soon became hooked on the sport’s potential for exercise and fitness training.
SUP is Standup Paddleboarding
Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) is the fastest growing water sport in the world. Paul designed his school’s program to teach anyone, even total amateurs and people without any athletic ability how to safely paddle in one of the most beautiful and serene areas in the Greater Toronto Area.
Paddleboard Addict offers beginner, group and private lessons. They will even come travel to your home or cottage to teach you and your friends. All equipment is provided in their lessons including SUP board, paddle, life jacket and leash.

Paddleboard addict is especially effective school in flat water – the calmer the water the easier it is to learn the delicate art of paddle boarding . Other schools on Lake Ontario teach in choppy water (waves). Toronto has some of the best beaches in the world, which is verified by the Blue Flag Program. This internationally recognized program awards blue flags to communities committed to maintaining high standards for water quality.
