Meet The Team
We are the Prystupa family who love everything boats, travel, scenic views, and most importantly spending time with family and friends. We have vacationed here in the beautiful Okanagan year after year with our two children. Even before they were born, we were heading out south in the old Ford with our back pack, sandals, and flip phone (Wow, that really aged us!) Then came the baby bottles, play pens, and diaper bags. We took on many new adventures here and built some amazing memories over the years. We loved everything about the Okanagan from hours of boating with friends, exploring the trails, and tasting as many wineries as we can get in!
In 2019 a new baby was brought into our lives, “Kickin’ Back Boat Rentals”. With years of owning several small business, along with various ownership of boats, we took on this amazing new opportunity. We truly understand the importance of experiencing the best time in the Okanagan. Whether you’re an out-of-town visitor or from the local community, we strive to offer you an amazing time on the water that will develop into memories which will last a lifetime!
We work together as a team to provide our guests with top notch boats, professional customer service, and a remarkable travel experience that exceeds our customer’s expectations. We are committed to providing the best boat rental experience, so you too can create those amazing memories at one of the most beautiful locations in British Columbia.
Owner & Managing Director
Marina is one of the owners, as well as the Managing Director. With past business ownerships and over 15 years of customer service experience Marina ensures each client receives first class customer care. When she’s not in the office, she can be found moving weights in the home gym or spending time with her family. With a name like “Marina” the boat biz was defiantly calling her name!
Owner & Operations Manager
Clint is one of the owners, as well as the Operations Manager. Clint brings the expertise required for attention to detail with a high level of efficiency. When he’s not behind the scenes with his team, you will see him delivering boats and meeting clients on the dock. Clint has grown up around boats and the outdoors , with a huge passion for surfing and hiking. You may also see him cruising in his beloved classic Mopar car when not on the lake.
Brayden is one of the amazing boat detailers that makes sure each boat is cleaned and sanitized before each rental. This is Braydens second year with Kickin Back and has a great understanding of clients' expectations for cleanliness. Braydens hobbies are competitive snowboarding and of course surfing! He is currently working on saving as much money as he can to buy his first car!
Executive Fetch Enthusiast
This is Skippers first year with Kickin Back Boat Rentals, and he loves to make new friends. Skipper is a labradoodle puppy who loves playing fetch in the water and hanging out with the team in the yard. When he’s not jumping off the docks, you’ll find him napping or chewing a large stick.
