Our 40th Anniversary celebration wouldn't be complete without a shout-out to the companies that have supported Canoe & Kayak from the start, and drove the evolution of our sport. Plus, we couldn't resist a look back at some of the best ads ever to run in the magazine.

The C&K Vintage Ad Sweepstakes is your chance to vote for your all-time favorite ad, and win a Werner Kalliste Carbonpaddle. Our friends at Teva are also giving the winner up to 6 pairs of sandals for the family!

The contest kicks off February 11, with a first-round showdown between Stohlquist and Teva, and continues with a new battle every weekday through February 19th. Be sure to check out the vintage ads and cast your ballots for NOC, Old Town, Perception, Rutabaga, Hyside and Current Designs. Each contest will go from 9am to 5pm PST, and friends can vote once per round. Check back here or our facebook page when the contest launches for results.
