Our philosophy is that there is a style of paddlesporting that everyone can enjoy. It’s our job to facilitate that experience.

At the shop we have a lot of gear, for newer paddlers it can all seem a bit intimidating. So, we have tried to craft a message that simplifies things to begin with, an overview of sorts that helps relax people into it and then we move onto more detailed descriptions once people start to get an idea of what they really like. This video is a version of that initial discussion. In this tutorial we discuss the things you really NEED to go recreational kayaking, then we discuss the WANTS, things that enhance your paddling experience and finally the LUXURY items, this can be higher end items or simply safety gear and other items that will help you progress as you get further into the sport.
