We've just finalized some exciting plans for July 2017! Partnering with Norm Hann Expeditions, we will be taking a group of SUP adventurers to the East Arm of Great Slave Lake for 4 days of exploring and SUP fishing.
This is a once in a lifetime trip you won't want to miss!
Join us at Fred Henne Territorial Park beach on Sunday, June 19th for SUPtacular Sunday!
This is going to be a full day of fun on the water. Free gear demos, races, prizes, and a barbecue. To participate in the races and be eligible for some awesome prizes, please register here by June 17th. Only $10!
To help you all extend the season and get on the water, starting this Friday, all new SUP boards, paddles and accessories will be 10% off!!
Our paddle season runs through October so we're still a long ways away from frozen lakes!
There's not a lot of gear left so don't miss out!
We have a few great boards from Boardworks left in stock, including the 11'6 Super Natural (a favorite all-around cruiser), and the all-new 12'6 Super Sport (a great, fast touring/sport board).
We also have a good selection of paddles remaining from Kialoa and Boardworks. Whether you need a super durable adjustable, or want to upgrade to a high-performance full-carbon race paddle, we have it!
Lastly, all in stock accessories are also on sale. We have everything from fins, deck rigging kits, inflatable belt PFDs, repair kits, paddle bags, straps and soft car racks and pads.
We're stoked to start our Monday Morning Wake-Up Coffee Runs!
Starting next Monday at 6:30am, join us in the shop for a fresh brewed cup of java then an early morning spin on Great Slave Lake. Nothing better than starting your work week off on the water.
Absolutely free if you bring your own gear, or $20 if you need to borrow. Message us for more details.
The 2015 paddle season has officially started here at Old Town Paddle & Co. with our first paddle going down last night on the frigid waters of the Yellowknife River. It was a beauty night with a short, up-river cruise to where the water meets ice! We're stoked to be on the water a full week earlier than in 2014.
Don't wait until July to get out on board, the season starts now! If you want to rent a board and get out, don't worry about the cold water. We have a good selection of wetsuits and neoprene booties to keep you toasty.
As one of our good friends likes to say, "GO BECAUSE YOU CAN!" No excuses.
Check out this great article (link below) from SUP Connect on why you need an inflatable board in your quiver. We love our inflatables, and all of our customers that have tried them love them too.
Coincidentally, we carry all of the boards pictured in the article so let us know if you want to check them out!

So I guess we've made it. Esteemed journalist Tora Berg wrote an article about us for YFI News and it was published in their recent edition. You might be able to find a copy around town which would include some sweet pics but if it's sold out at your local retailer, you can read the article below.Read More
