ESQUIF


SPARK www.esquif.com $1,568


Speed, precision and maneuverability were the three guiding elements in the creation of the Spark—a concept represented in the lines of the Ignitor, a slalom canoe well known for exceptional performance. In collaboration with American slalom champion John Kazimierczyk, Esquif has created a canoe with the performance of a high quality composite combined with the toughness of Royalite. Esquif will continue to support open canoe slalom with designs and involvement.

BLUEWATER CANOES


FREEDOM TRIPPER www.bluewatercanoes.com $1,495–$3,265


The narrow beam of the Freedom 17 makes it a superb canoe for the experienced tripper. This beautifully fair asymmetrical hull, with the widest point six inches aft-of-center, increases overall speed and makes paddling easier. With slightly more rocker than most modern canoes, designer Steve Killing has managed to gain back the turning ability found in traditional canoe shapes without sacrificing the speed of the modern hull. It is a quick boat that remains maneuverable.
