About Us

Hey everyone!

I’m Derik Lawlis,

A few years ago I went canoe tripping down the Noire river and pinned a boat within the first 20 minutes of a 3-day trip. 😓

We had to leave the canoe behind and complete the trip with 2 canoes instead of 3 but we had a great time.

I was hooked from this experience. Since then, I began selling Esquif canoes with my friend and adventure veteran Pierre Desjardins. 🛶

We focus on providing the entire Esquif range of canoes in stock just outside Ottawa (900 Lepine, Gatineau) along with outfitting and repairs.

Visit us at paddle.ca for the latest prices and discounts or better yet, call me at 514-213-7720 so we can talk about your next adventure.
