Thanks for all those who sent in their New Year’s paddling resolutions.
It really gave us in insight to our paddling crew and people who simply love getting out on the water from the young to young at heart. And we had a look at the lighter side of their paddling resolutions! Thanks for sharing.
Here are a few of our favourites and quotes from them and we added our own thoughts…
“In 2014 I want to paddle somewhere other than Regina!”
Dear Liam, the cooler thing is you paddle in the only city that rhymes with fun!

"No paddle (canoe trip) is a bad paddle, some are just better than others"
Dear Tom, some of us paddle to get away from our wives… but glad to hear it is a family affair!
Jack Pitfield says:
My New Year's goal is to start exploring overnight self-supported white water kayak expeditions. I live in the Southeast so there are some great options in my backyard. I'm planning to head out to the Chattooga for a classic overnighter in a month. “
Thanks for making great gear!
Dear Jack, if you hear banjos – paddle faster!
