Our Canadian Roots

Canadian National team paddler Stig Larsson and Canadian Olympic paddler Tyler Lawlor were tired of wearing mediocre gear with outdated styles. They wanted their own style and personality represented in the form of their own paddling gear and apparel so they started a company in 1997 that did just that. Since then, Level Six has been setting trends on the water and pushing the boundaries of quality and fashion within the paddling community. Stig and Tyler know what paddlers need and want and they continuously provide them, year after year, with their fix. Whether you are a hard-core, whitewater guru or a sun-soaking, beach bum, Level Six has what you need to get the most out of your time on and off the water.

April 17, 2014

I just spend a day on the wave where I learned the basics of play boating! Nothings changed... this wave seems small but can serve up air if you put some muscle into your tricks! 


Training continues for the Whitewater Grand  Prix! 


Thanks to Sara Luna Gonzalez for taking the photos!

Do you follow us on instagram?! If so, this easter weekend you have a chance to win a Level Six prize pack consisting of a hat, t-shirt and short sleeve paddling top! Just in time for spring - some people do easter egg hunts, we're doing a photo hunt. 

Here's what we want you to do:

Friday April 18th - Snap a pic of your rad shuttle vehicle that gets you to your place of paddling

Sat April 19th - We want to see a picture of your boat, not you IN your boat, just your beautiful boat posing on its own

Sun April 20th - Now we want to see YOU paddling. Old picture, new picture, whatever! Let's see you in action.

Monday April 21st - This wouldn't be a LEVEL SIX instagram contest without seeing ourselves in one of your pictures so last but not least, we want to see the Level Six logo! Wherever you can find it... there's a logo at the top of this page, if you're really stuck!

BE SURE to tag your pictures #levelsixhunt and @levelsix so we can see your beautiful pictures and ultimately pick one of you as the champion! Share your pictures on Twitter and Facebook for extra points!

Oh, and if you don't follow us on Instagram, follow us so you can participate. And if you don't have Instagram well, we can't really help you out there and it might take a while to teach you the ropes - but it will be worth it! 

We will pick the winner Tuesday April 22nd!

Media Release: Taking it to the next Level

April 01, 2014

For immediate release, Ottawa Ontario.        

Shocking name change by legendary paddling company Level Six. 

Ottawa based Level Six paddling gear and clothing company has changed their name to Level Seven.

After 17 years of business they felt it was time to step it up a level. “ We went through all the options, level 6.1 , 6.2 , but really felt that stepping it up a full digit would be best.” Says Stig Larsson , co-founder. “Level Six just seemed lame , why not one higher?”. The company has a had roller coaster of success over the past 17 years creating a brand that institutes to great lengths quality, lifestyle and the love of the number 6.

Level Seven, formerly known as Level Six has also instituted a grade of rapids – and that is of course Class 7 rapids. “ The class system of rapids has not changed in decades, but the level of paddling has.” Says Lawlor, co-founder “We are a progressive paddling company, we beat to our own drum, make our own rules, but we are not held by the rules of the river. Level Seven baby.”  

The company is slated to release their new logo and branding later this week.

“Look out paddling world. It’s going to be crazy. Check out for more details….”hesitates Lawlor. “ I think we are going to need a new website.”

February 23, 2014

I wanted to share some some more photos from the past few weeks in Southern California.  The waves haven't been too big, but the weather and water has been nice and warm.  Its never a bad winter when you are surfing in board shorts!   I have been getting some great use out of my level six boardshorts and my SUP rider tees!  They have treated me well and will be a staple in the water from now on! 

I have one more week to soak up the sun in socal before heading back to the east coast for the start of my yearly SUP tour with Boardworks Surf.  I will be kicking off the year with some east coast whitewater next month, so check back for more updates on level six products i will be testing on the road!

SUP surfing in the Breaker Surf Shorts!

February 10, 2014

After a cold water trip down to Mexico, the surf started to slow down a bit in North San Diego.  This has been a perfect time to get out the bigger cruiser boards and ditch the wetsuit for a few days!   After living in my wetsuit for 2 weeks, it feels great to get out and ride some waves in board shorts!   

I have been surfing in the new Level Six Breaker Surf Shorts over the past few days and they have been great.   Nice style , great colors, non restrictive fit, and quick drying.   Check them out at your local dealer or on the web and get out in the water and surf! 

See you on the water, 


Mike Tavares
