Weekend Wrap Up

What an amazing weekend of all things paddlesports!  Saturday we were out at Western Canoeing and Kayaking for their end of season sale.  Selling Aqua Pac Accessories, Esquif Canoes, Jackson Kayaks, Kokatat Watersports Wear and Werner Paddles

Sunday the weather was fantastic for the Vancouver SUP Challenge at Jericho Beach and we were joined on the beach by Werner team paddlers, Nikki Gregg and Mike Darbyshire.

Jade and Azul Beach Patterns
Lots of paddlers came by the booth to demo paddles and check out what's new for 2013 particularly our new lighter weight Premium and Performance Core SUP paddles, the updated beach patterns, the 3 pce. Fiji and our SUP River Running paddle - the Stinger.  Check out the video of the Stinger HERE.

A huge shout-out to Gary Parsons and his crew for hosting a great event.  The vibe was awesome and all paddlers were welcome, newbies to the pros and groms all the way to our more distinguished silver-haired participants!  Thanks to Mr. Bell (Shannon Bell-Parson's dad) for the tunes and the fresh peaches.
