Word Rowing Coaches' Conference a Great Success
- Tuesday, June 5, 2012

Our Managing Director Anil Lamba has just returned from his visit to the World Rowing Coaches' Conference held in Slough, UK between the 20th to 23rd of January 2011. The theme of the conference was FINDING THE EDGE – TALENT AND TECHNOLOGY .

Anil spent these days interacting with rowing coaches, boat builders and from many other backgrounds. Ankaa Rowing Shoes, as hoped and expected, stood out from the crowd and were accepted well with the coaches in attendance.

The feedback received on the new sole of the New Wave rowing shoes stood out and we are pleased with the rewards of our efforts here. We do think our attitude of constant chasing for feedback of our products has paid off. Based on the positive reception of senior members of the global community at the World Rowing Coaches Conference, Ankaa has decided to develop and launch this sole in the entire New Wave size range. We'll keep you posted in this.

Anil also found that a lot of our bulk buyers at the conference appreciated the fact that we are able to print their logos (on a minimum order of 25 pairs and at a nominal price of US$1.50 per pair).

Ankaa Rowing Visits the Rowing World Cup 2010 in Munich, Germany
- Tuesday, June 5, 2012


This was an exciting and informative visit to the Rowing World Cup 2010 at the Olympia Regatta Course in Munich. Ankaa Rowing Shoes has been attending major rowing events worldwide over the past 20 years and this was one of the events to happen in 2010. The Rowing World Cup 2010 gave us a great opportunity to meet users of rowing shoes. We also met with our clients who had traveled to Germany from different corners of the world to attend.


We were working out of our Principals stand – New Wave ( during the period. New Wave have been involved with rowing over many years and we at Ankaa are proud of our association with them. New Wave have been instrumental in introducing the Ankaa supported New Wave rowing shoes worldwide and have been a vital part of our growth. New Waves reputation in the rowing industry is immense and they showcase and sell the best brands. We are privileged to be one of their main vendors. The New Wave and Ankaa Shoes range of rowing shoes were prominently displayed.

During the Rowing World Cup we met several visitors including professional and amateur rowers who shared their experiences with rowing shoe usage.

At Ankaa, we have always taken feedback from rowers and others associated with rowing seriously. We are of the opinion that it is in our best interest to upgrade and modify our shoes based on customer feedback. We spoke to a broad spectrum of visitors including student rowers and boat builders.

The event was a grand success and we returned back with great memories. Thanks all who took the time to visit and discuss rowing shoes with us. We look forward to catching up with you next time!

Australian Rowing Championships 2010 at Nagambie, Victoria, Australia
- Tuesday, June 5, 2012


Our team made a visit to the Australia Rowing Championships at Nagambie Lakes in Victoria in March 2010. We have been attending this event regularly over the years with a view to interact with customers, rowers and remain part of the Australian rowing scene. This was a well attended and organized event and we got to meet a lot of our current and potential rowing shoe customers. Our range of Ankaa rowing shoes, including the New Wave were also on display.

We were working alongside our agents Designer Paint Works Australia ( between the 5th and 11th March.

Being at their stand has always been a pleasure and we have shared many years of business association together. In fact Designer Paint Works have been instrumental in bringing our rowing shoes to Australia and helping us with our growth in the Australasian region. We have enjoyed their patronage over the years and they have provided us with valuable inputs which we in turn have used to improve on our rowing shoes.

Nagambie was busy and attended by professional and amateur rowers. It was great to meet so many of them and learn from their experiences.

We at Ankaa Rowing take feedback from the rowing community extremely seriously and are sensitive to rowers foot problems. After all, getting to hear things from the horses mouth about our shoes gives us a real picture.

We look forward to attending the next Australia Rowing Championships and hope to see you there!
