Top 5 paddles in under 3 minutes:
1. Hamilton, Ontario
Paddling in the dead of winter through the ice at sunset on Lake Ontario. 2022 was my first full year of paddling in the wintertime and on this particular evening, my partner Tony was with me to experience the beauty of the ice and nature in the wintertime.
Check out Cootes Paradise, my favourite Hamilton location in the spring and summer.

An iconic Canadian spot with mountains cascading into the glacier-fed blue water. It was humbling and absolutely mind-blowing to paddle beside among the mountains!

5. Algonquin Park, Ontario
My first backcountry paddle boarding trip. The beauty of nature, testing my board with gear, the sound of loons, and time with friends was all good for the soul.
