Q & A


It is snowing once again in Victoria but that should not stop you from paddling...maybe a bit...or maybe not. No matter what the weather, we have great courses and workshops coming up!

Patti and I took some time to go play in the waves in Tofino and had a wonderful time. Michael Depodesta also joined us on the second weekend. Here are videos showing the fun at Chesterman Beach.

Thank you Randy Millar and VIPaddles.

Patti Stevens is a proud VIPaddles ambassador and certainly knows how to use it. Here's Patti at play with her VI Paddle. For more information, check VIPaddles website at
