To support Vaikobi's growth in the Canadian paddle market, Vaikobi is proud to announce the establishment of Vaikobi Canada in partnership with Paul Torriero from Torr Trading Ltd.

The newly established Vaikobi Canada will service the growing dealer network throughout Canada and in addition will also provide the highest level of service for teams, clubs and events offering the full range of Vaikobi's innovative ocean performance products.

Vancouver based Paul Torriero has a strong background in ocean sports from Swimming on the Canadian National Team through to competing in Surf Life Saving in Australia and Surfing Stand Up Paddle adventures around the globe. Paul is also a strong Surf Ski paddler and understands the requirements for our Athletes and what they need to perform on the Ocean.

With the announcement of Vaikobi Canada, Vaikobi's Pat Langley commented, "We are extremely excited to be partnering with Paul who is a valuable addition to our global team and will provide us with a strong focus on the Canadian market."

"Canadians are well known for their passion for the outdoors and in particular paddle sports, so it is fantastic that Vaikobi will be able to provide the highest level of service for this important market."

Vaikobi Canada will this weekend be on hand at the Vancouver Dragon Boat Festival at Concord Pacific Place, so keep an eye out for the Vaikobi tent and come and view the full Vaikobi product line up!
