We supply paddling gear similar to what we use on our EXPLORE packages and ADVENTURE tours, and the full range of SURFSKI books.

We keep the smaller items in stock, while the boats are subject to an order, production and delivery process.

Paddles are in robust plastic blade and aluminium split shaft format.
