Experience Adventure with Sun Sport Recreation

Get what you need for your next lake adventure

Imagine watching the magic of the twilight sky sitting in a kayak on Sylvan Lake. It’s moments like these that drive Sun Sport Recreation, a local equipment rental shop. Winter or summer, Sun Sport Recreation has everything you need for your next adventure on the lake.

For owner Chris Bowers, exploring Sylvan Lake via the water is a passion that he wants to share with as many people as possible. Over the last 26-years, Bowers has introduced thousands of visitors to the thrill of outdoor recreation on the lake.

“I knew that Sylvan Lake would be an ideal location with its proximity to Edmonton and Calgary. We allow people the chance to get on the water without spending huge amounts of money to enjoy it,” Bower added.

Sun Sport Recreation is your complete rental shop in Sylvan Lake with a large selection of rental gear available – from Seadoos to paddle boards. If you want to play on the lake, Sun Sport has the equipment for you.  Whether you have tons of experience on the water or you’re a beginner, Sun Sport Recreation has the perfect rental for your next adventure.

“We started with paddle equipment and eventually expanded into motorized options like Seadoos and speed boats. We even have pontoon boats for people who like to get out on the lake and relax,” Bowers said.

Sharing a piece of paradise called Sylvan Lake

Sylvan Lake is a little piece of paradise that Sun Sport Recreation is happy to share. According to Bowers, great water quality, the allure of the strip with all restaurants, and the beach makes Sylvan Lake the perfect little resort town.

“There is so much going on and the town has so much to offer,” Bowers said. “We get a lot of smiles, and our goal is to see people out there having fun and being safe. We love welcoming people to our lake.”

This summer Sun Sport Recreation is unveiling a new boat in the rental fleet -  the Seadoo Switch. It combines the power of a speed boat, the spaciousness of a pontoon boat and the maneuverability of a personal watercraft. It offers your family a unique experience for all interests and preferences.

“The Switch is going to be something new and exciting on the water this season,” Bower said.

Along with a busy summer season, Sun Sport Recreation offers winter experiences as well. Visitors and locals can rent snowshoes as well as everything you need for an ice fishing adventure. Sun Sport Recreation rents out both day and overnight ice fishing shacks. The mini-Cabin is a perfect winter fun activity  and get away for families and friends looking for a fun adventure out on the lake.


“It’s an interesting experience for families looking for something different to do. We make it an all-inclusive experience with a wood-fired sauna, charcuterie board options and all the equipment needed for fishing, Bower said.

Regardless of the season, Sun Sport Recreation can help you plan your next adventure. Everyone is welcome at the shop and on the water, frozen or not. No question will go unanswered by Sun Sport’s friendly staff. All you need to bring is your sense of adventure.
