South West Canoe show 2009

Thats right, the regions biggest free canoe show returns for its 6th year to the Quayside in Exeter Devon on Saturday 3rd October 2009.

This is the best chance to see all the newest kayaks, canoe, paddle and other gear that will be hitting the shops in the new season.
The Kanumesse trade show in Germany two weeks before is the largest in Europe and has more importance than the Outdoor retailer show in Salt Lake city Colorado. Most of the new product comes direct from Kanumesse straight to the SWCS. Often being seen by the public for the first time in the sunny south west.
Expect great deals, lots of shiny new kit, free on the water demos, the best advice, information and help from all the main brands in paddle sport and some of the smaller ones too!

Adventure travel talks from Jeff Allen (a well respected sea kayak explorer) and The Hosie brothers who this year crossed the English channel by sea kayak. Big deal you may say, this has been swum by celebs. Well try doing it at 13yrs old! Christian did and became the youngest person ever to do so. Earning himself a place in the Guinnes book of records.

Visit the show site for all the latest news and updates.

Dont forget this is also the openning weekend of the River Dart and kicks off the white water season so dont forget your boat or even buy a new one!

Devon ducky fun.

Ducky's, the common name for a 2 person raft, are a huge amount of fun. Especially for introducing people to white water.
Check out the summer white water fun we had last week. In the front is 16 yr old Dan.
