Meet the owner

Tough economic times and the impact of the Internet have changed the face of businesses across the country. And there's at least one industry that's thriving with this changing landscape: Paddlesports.

"When times are tough, people go paddling," say Chris Ladner, owner of Ecomarine Paddlesports Centres, a Vancouver mainstay for all things to do with kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding (SUP), outrigger canoeing, dragonboating and more.

Whether it's a book on the topic of paddling, a map for your next kayak excursion, lessons to put you in the paddling game, or the proper gear for any outdoor activity, Ecomarine Paddlesports has you covered. And because the business has been operating since 1980, you can trust that you're dealing with paddling pros.

    Best Kayaking Candy Store

    Love the selection, quality products, expert advice, sales, and all round friendly and dedicated service. Classes and rentals were good too. I would say it is one of the highlights at Granville Island.
