April 2009: We are very excited to announce that WAVpaddling Instructional School has merged with Wilderness Supply!
WAVpaddling was founded by Mick Lautt in 1995 and has done an incredible job of serving the needs of the paddling community in Manitoba. Mick and the WAV team have worked tirelessly to encourage paddlers to participate in courses that develop their skill levels and awareness of the safety and environmental factors involved in paddling.
We are extremely excited to have the opportunity to carry the efforts of WAVpaddling into the future. Since 1995, Wilderness Supply has been helping outdoor enthusiasts find the equipment necessary to have fun pursuing their outdoor passions.
Offering WAVpaddling courses fulfills a long time goal and commitment to offer courses through Wilderness Supply to our customers and friends. Participating in courses with experienced instructors is an important way to develop your personal skill and increase the amount of fun you have doing the things you love.
Wilderness is a store that has a lot of fun and innovative gear, but we are more about the experience of living and playing in the back country. It is our mission to promote learning, safety and environmental awareness both on the water and in the back country. We have introduced our course work with a 2009 paddling and first aid schedule but will be expanding our course offerings over time. Our team in Thunder Bay will be offering similar paddling courses shortly.
Please keep checking back with us and sign up for our e-newsletter here if you would like to be kept up to date about new courses added.
If you are interested in learning how to become an instructor with Wilderness Supply or would like more information on our paddling courses, please feel free to join us at our open house on Friday, April 24 at 7:30 (623 Ferry Rd, Winnipeg)
