Neil Trouton

Neil only joined the WCK Team in February of 2022, but he has been coming into the store for over 30 years, first as a customer, along the way as a Paddle Sports Purchaser picking up Clipper Canoes and other gear for a shop he worked at in the Interior and eventually as a Paddle Sports Sales Rep, and now as the Retail Store Manager at WCK. He was mainly known as a whitewater kayaker, a competitive freestyle and extreme kayaker in the 90s and early 2000s, winding up as an Instructor for all paddle sports disciplines for a few years after that, now a days he is pretty happy to be re connecting with the lakes and rivers of the Lower Mainland in whichever types of paddling craft he happens to find himself in on each trip, along with a new passion, angling for salmon and steelhead on the Chilliwack River.
