Whitewater Paddling Quebec | Unclephil’s First Post!

Hi there, I’m Philippe Lavallée and this is my first blog post!

With this blog, I will try and showcase all the amazing whitewater, events and people from the rich paddling community of La Belle Province, Québec.
Since I do not enjoy writing long texts, you will find I love to write

Hope you enjoy the read! Here goes,

So let me introduce myself in our common language, my paddling. In general, I mostly do playboating in Montreal in the summertime, but I love creeking around Québec.
Paddling “Les rapides de Lachine” is very convenient for me because I live right next to the Fleuve St-Laurent.  Like my friend Frédérik Gendron says, there is always some feature that’s prime at The Lachines! It’s got it all, from a sweet hole to massive waves. Eddy service to the top and the fairy back to shore is a workout tho, it’s great to stay in shape!

If you have not been formally introduced to this section of the Fleuve St-Laurent, you can check-out the Montreal Eau Vive recap video from 2016.

What I wish to accomplish wit this blog:
– Relate the kayaking scene around Montreal.
– Invite international paddler to come discover what “les rapides de Lachine” has to offer!
– Help the community to be aware of all the events that happen around them
– Share my stoke for the sport and get kids into paddling.
– Showcase all the beautifull places we paddle to help people find love for nature and care better for it.
