Nashwaak emerged out of my own passion for canoeing and the tremendous impact that Omer Stringer had on me in the 1960’s. Omer truly was the father of modern canoeing. He was a brilliant, creative thinker who figured out optimal ways of doing pretty much anything to do with canoes and the northwoods. We dedicate this site to Omer.You’ll find lots here on Omer and his techniques, especially in Paddling Tips and Omer Stringer.

What’s in a name? Nashwaak (pronounced “nash-walk”) means “slow current that winds among hills” and is the Maliseet Indian name for the foothills river that flows into the broad St. John at Fredericton, on Canada’s east coast. The Nashwaak Cruiser was developed when I lived in the upper Nashwaak Valley in the 1970’s. — Jeff Solway.
