Canoe and Kayak Store is an independently owned, specialist paddle-sport store based in Gloucestershire, we also have a store in South Wales at the Cardiff International White Water Centre, where you can Demo our boats and Paddles on the course.

Our roots trace back to the year 2000 when Richard (having paddled since he was a child) was offered the chance to buy a canoe business. Loving the industry but not liking the company he decided to set up his own – opening a shop in Gloucestershire and leading to where we are today!
