Olympic Gold Medalist and Epic President Greg Barton is thrilled. "I am very excited to be working with USA Canoe Kayak. After all the success I've had in International competitions, this is my chance to give back to the sport. Our sponsorship program will allow clubs to stretch their equipment budgets, while helping the U.S. development program to train the next generation of paddlers," says Barton.

The Epic team is proud of the commitments being made in this sponsorship agreement, and we believe it will have a positive impact on the future of ICF paddling in the United States. One of the most important things we can do as a manufacturer (and as passionate paddlers) is give back to the sport and work to promote its growth. By making sure flatwater clubs and organizations have access to the equipment they need for their paddlers and programs, we can ensure that our sport as a whole is equipped to move forward and develop its full potential.
