very broad range of quality kayaks spanning a diversity of uses and budgets.
The increase in production of Sit-on kayaks Worldwide has given a much
larger number of people the opportunity of getting out onto the water
than was previously possible with enclosed cockpit kayaks. This is a good
thing, however any activity on the water is potentially dangerous and
should be approached in a responsible
and safe manner. With this in mind we keep a large stock of various Sit-on
models to endeavour to find the one that most suits your paddling needs/build
and skill level. All of our Sit-ons are strong self draining rotomoulded
Kayaks incorporating intrinsic safety features as standard.

The benefits of a Sit-in Kayak are many, in most cases they are warmer/faster
and more responsive than their sit-on counterparts. Within this category
it seems sometimes that there are as many different kayaks on the market
as there are ripples on the water ! There is good reason for this, designing
a sit-in kayak is a complex task as the manufacturer must take many design
factors into account to produce a hull that will perform optimally in
the water conditions it is specifically designed for. Of course the designer
must not only take into account the type of water the kayak will be in
but also what type of person will be in the Kayak ! Basically the end
result is that there is a Kayak out there perfectly suited to your individual
needs to take you on the waters of your choice, the only problem is finding
it ! We stock a wide range of Sit-in Kayaks of varying hull designs and
we take the time to ensure that you end up with the Kayak that is most
suited to your particular needs and skill level.

called the Featherlite series. As their name suggests, they are easy to
lift/carry and transport. They are wonderfully stable and comfortable

Even if you have no interest in Kayaks whatsoever, it's very hard not to
appreciate the beauty that is a well constructed Fibreglass Sea Kayak.
In fact, you could be excused to buy it and put it over the mantle place
to admire it at your leisure. If however you could force yourself to actually
use it you would quickly see exactly why fibreglass is chosen for the construction
of the higher performing Kayak hulls. The kayak will effortlessly and quietly
cut through the water with ease with the stiffness of hull guaranteeing
precision edging in the most demanding of conditions. Qajaq are an Italian
