It looks like you are in Chch, so go to Venture Out in Montreal street (just Sth of the railway lines on East side of road), Canoe and Outdoor World in Pilgrim place (behind Denny's) and PaddlerZone in Hawdon Street (just off Broughham). Between these shops (which are conveniently close to each other) is a majority of what's out ther and a lot of no-BS advice. I highly recommend going and seeing what's there.
