Hey Southern Ontarians: We're Coming To You!

We're on our way to Southern Ontario!

Hey Paddlers,

It's that time of year again! Every spring we head to the Guelph Lake Conservation Area and bring trailer loads of canoes, kayaks, and SUP's for our annual spring sales event. This year we're bringing over 150 new and used boats that are priced to move. We'll be bringing boats from Swift, Hobie, Evergreen, Perception, Mad River, Wilderness Systems, Bic, BluWave, Starboard, and more. We'll have gear from Kokatat, Werner, Harmony, Fox40, Grey Owl, and Badger Paddles. We'll be right on the water too, so you can "try before you buy!" Not only that, but we'll have reps from Swift, Hobie, BluWave SUP, Badger Paddles available to help you with any questions you may have. We'll get you geared up for test paddles, find the right boat for your needs, or help tie down your new purchase. We've got everything you need to get paddling this season!

April Fools!

Busted! The girl with the pink PFD.

Okay, okay, you got us. It was an April Fools joke. Pretty convincing though huh? Some of you actually guessed pretty well, we took that picture when we were installing a roof rack on my car last summer. So fear not, the Swift store is intact and we still have a functioning front door. We'd like to say thanks to everyone who commented, participated, and played along, you guys and gals were great. We hope we didn't upset anyone, but if it makes you feel better we all laughed really hard.

Here's a couple more pics:

I assure you I did not blast through the doors at high speed. I thought about it, but I would've had to clean up the mess...
