Canoe and Kayak Store is an independently owned, specialist paddle-sport store based in Gloucestershire. We also have a store in South Wales inside 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!

    Scottish Shenanigans from our sponsored paddler, Natty Cordon! “It's fair to say that we weren't blessed with fantastic levels on our spring trip to Scotland, but we made the most of it by getting up to no good! Think of this as an instructional video on how to squeeze the most fun out of a river trip.”

    Are you looking for an all-out creeker, or a river runner that creeks well? In my experience the karma isn’t the best full-on creeker around for low volume rivers because it’s quite a long boat it can be sluggish to adapt your line mid drop/slide. Also the sheer length and width of the planing hull make for very.... More
