Events & Clinics


We practice what we preach! We love helping you find the right equipment for your adventures, and what we love even more is getting outside with you, and finding moments to inspire you. Throughout the year we offer paddling clinics and tours, workshops, film festivals and gatherings in local green spaces.


 

Thursday, April 5th 7:00pm at The Screening Room
Tickets $20 available at Trailhead
 
The Paddling Film Festival is an international adventure film tour presenting the world’s best paddling films of the year – whitewater, sea kayaking, canoeing, SUP, action and lifestyle – in more than 120 cities and towns across Canada, United States and around the world. 

With 20 inspiring paddling films shortlisted for the World Tour, including the 10 festival category winners, audiences will see hairy whitewater action, sea kayakers exploring remote coastlines, northern river canoe expeditions, international river travel films, motivating environmental documentaries, grueling kayak fishing battles and hilarious short films capturing the lighter side of paddling life.

Make new paddling friends in our SOCIAL series of paddling experiences! A nice follow up to our Discover series, or for those of you that have some paddling experience, and are looking for some company. 

Maybe you’ve already taken our Discover SUP clinic, and want to keep paddling. Or, you’re looking for a way to cool off before the weekend. Or perhaps just a plain old fun evening out. Join us on the water for 90 min tour of Kingston’s waterfront. Thursday evenings $40/person

 

Join us on Wednesday evenings for this 2 hour tour of Kingston’s waterfront, followed by a visit to one of our favorite downtown pubs! A great way to celebrate “hump day”. $40/person (pint not included!)


Choose you own adventure! Like the idea of one of our clinics, but not our date? Not to worry, we can make any clinic happen at any time, you need 5 of your BFF’s and a date and time you’d like to paddle and we’ll make it work! Private and custom built clinics also available.
