About

Hi there!

Welcome to Paddlers Retreat. I’m the excessively tall chap who runs this website. It has made finding a paddle a complete pain in the ass. I grew up at the skate park & snowboarding Whistler and Big White so paddle boarding was a natural transition.

I fell in love with the sport two summers ago at a small cottage in Northern Ontario. Since then I’ve picked up a few boards of my own and tried a great deal more. I get the best of the both worlds, I spend some time in Kelowna every year which is an ideal flat water paddle spot and the rest of the time I spend in Vancouver or Tofino –  which serves up some groovy ocean paddling. My paddle surf skills have improved markedly but I’m still pretty piss poor.
