Lake Erie Paddler

Jim Lawhead founded Lake Erie Paddler in June 2012, inspired by his love for the sport of Standup Paddling (SUP), a commitment to his hometown of Lorain, Ohio, and a desire to have fun on Ohio’s greatest natural resource - Lake Erie.

Standup Paddling (SUP) is one of the world’s fastest growing water sports and offers many positive and holistic benefits that strengthen the body, calms the mind, and nurtures the soul.

Standup Paddling (SUP) is a fun way for friends and family to enjoy a wholesome, healthy, fitness-related activity outdoors, in the sunshine, and on the beach. What a better way to spend your summer days.

Lake Erie Paddler is a one of kind Standup Paddleboard company offering a fully integrated approach of Sales, Lessons, Rentals, Fitness, and Excursions.

As Lake Erie’s exclusive dealer for Surftech Paddleboards, Lake Erie Paddler is committed to delivering top quality solutions to our clients so they can enjoy a rich standup paddling (SUP) experience.

The mission of Lake Erie Paddler is to share the joy and benefits of standup paddling (SUP) with residents of Northeast Ohio and beyond and to establish Lakeview Park Beach, the City of Lorain, and Ohio’s North Shore as a premier destination for Standup Paddling (SUP).

They have regularly scheduled lessons at Lakeview Beach on Saturdays and Sundays.

Lake Erie Paddler's SUP shop is open every day but due to the nature of their on-water programming their retail hours are somewhat random.
