Stand-up-paddleboard demos are available at the Toronto location on Saturdays at 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m. and at the Kitchener location on Sundays at 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m. Unlike a standard rental, a demo lets each paddler try out new boards from a visiting company, in this case Bic Sport. Each two-hour outing includes a board, a paddle, a lifejacket, and a 20-minute lesson with a licensed instructor. The Toronto shop’s demos take place at Cherry Beach, and the Kitchener shop’s take place at Laurel Creek Conservation Area in Waterloo.
Meltdown Snowboard Shop
Meltdown Snowboard Shop purveys athletic gear and apparel for sports involving boards, skis, and BMX bikes. In the winter, snowboards by brands such as Burton, Forum, and Gnu fill the shop. In the summer, paddleboards by Bic Sport and Jimmy Lewis float into stock, along with longboards by GoldCoast, Dregs, and Lush. Athletic apparel and accessories bolster a wide range of outdoor pursuits, from hiking up tranquil foothills to biking away from overly chatty mountain goats. Men and women’s clothing provides tip-to-toe epidermal coverage, and all-purpose backpacks hold gear safely and conveniently.
In addition to guiding guests through an extensive selection of boots and bindings, the expert staff maintains slope-shredding equipment with meticulous tune-up services. Patrons can drop off beloved skis or snowboards for overnight upkeep sessions at the shop, bidding tearful goodbyes and making sure they packed their night lights.
