...some new arrivals on our site
We’ve decided to share our space with a few like-minded companies... starting with a few, and adding more over time, we're building an online village for brands who build products for a lifestyle in, on and around the water.
In addition to a marketplace, we’re building a place for sharing stories. Stories that describe this shared love of the water, and the people and places that inspire us.
Come back to visit us often.

Video: 6 Steps To Get In And Out Of Your Kayak
By: Simon Coward
As a specialty kayak retailer, we are the first information source for many people when they are thinking about purchasing or kayaking for the first time. When we chat with people considering sea or recreational kayaking, one of the most common discussion points is how do to get in and out of a kayak.
For those of us who have kayaked before this may seem to be a trivial question. But it is one that causes concern for many potential paddlers. Many are dealing with old injuries and have mobility issues in their knees, shoulders and other joints. There are many different scenarios for entering and exiting rec/touring kayaks. You could be on a rocky beach, a dock or sandy beach. For this video we have chosen a technique that is simple and can easily be adapted to most locations.
