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!

    12 Days of Crimbo

    It’s always difficult to know what to buy someone for Christmas, especially if you don’t understand the sport or the hobbies that they are so passionate about. So let us help you to choose a gift for the Kayaker, Canoeist or Stand Up Paddle Boarders in your life!

    With the help of our lovely Team Ambassadors, Josh and Tom we bring you the gift guide for 2018….

    On the first day of Christmas we bring you… the Rapid Skills White Water Safety and Rescue Kit for £75. You get a bonus of 10% off any Whitewater Safety and Rescue Course you book with Rapid Skills this winter.

    1st Day of Crimbo

    On the second day of Christmas we bring you Canoeing Accessories….. The 30 Litre Dry Barrel (also available in 60 Litre) and the Endless River Kneeling Mat, perfect for anyone who complains about their knees whilst canoeing!

    2nd Day of Crimbo

    On the 3rd day of Christmas how about something for the Stand Up Paddleboarder in your life… you can never have enough Leashes, and what better way to brighten up any board than with a brightly fun coloured Howzit Leash from £29.95? It makes the perfect stocking filler too!

    3rd Day of Crimbo

    On the 4th day of Christmas Throwlines for everyone! We stock the HF range where you can choose from the most popular HF Weasel 18m at £26.75, or Peak 20m Throwline if you need something a little longer, for the big rivers how about the Palm Pro 25m throwline? If you need advice on which one is most suitable, give us a call.

    4th Day of Crimbo Throwline

    On the 5th Day of Christmas we suggest some beautiful Wooden Canoe Paddles by Grey Owl. There is a huge selection available for beginners, touring, whitewater, deep water and even the traditional Haida paddle. The general guide for figuring out which size you need is that when holding it out in front of you with the blade on the floor, the top of the paddle should come up some where between your chin and your sternum (breastbone). If you aren’t sure what size paddle you need then please give us a call for some advice on 01454 261058.

    5th Day of Crimbo

    On the 6th Day of Christmas how about something for yourself? Our personal favourite, Palm Pogies, enabling you to have warm hands whilst still being able to have proper contact with your paddle throughout winter. If pogies aren’t for you then we have a good selection of neoprene gloves available for you to choose from.

    6th Day of Crimbo

    On the 7th Day of Christmas my true love sent to meeeee, a novelty kayaking mug to put my tea/coffee/mulled wine or cider in!! Everyone needs a new favourite mug for Christmas!

    7th Day of Crimbo

    On the 8th Day of Christmas (which is also the last guaranteed posting date to get your Christmas shopping delivered on time)….. how about some Peak UK Thermals to keep you warm and toasty on and off the water.. these also come in handy if you ski, snowboard, surf, windsurf, or work in the outdoors. Every single staff member owns a set of these and can promise you they are worth every penny! 

    8th Day of Crimbo

    On the 9th Day of Christmas how about treating yourself to a new Buoyancy Aid, we really like the Palm FX as a good, comfortable beginner PFD, it has a pocket to store your snacks and a whistle and is super comfy and is my personal choice. Alternatively if you are looking for something with really low volume and no faff the NRS Ion is also a very good alternative. If you need advice on the best buoyancy aid for you give us a call or come in store and try a few on as they need to pass the comfort test and that’s unique to each individual.


    On the 10th Day of Christmas how about something that’s perfect for when you just get off the river, and can be used in many other areas of your life too a Sandiline Poncho or a Dryrobe…. no more half naked freezing cold changes in the car park, keep your decency and warmth with the fetching robe selection!


    On the 11th Day of Christmas how about an awesome hand drawn tee by Amy Dunis (Adventurous Pencil) inside the Brain of a Kayaker by Palm Equipment. Perfect stocking filler for the paddler obsessed person in your life when they aren’t in kayaking rig!


    On the 12th Day of Christmas don’t forget to protect the most important thing about you…. your noggin! With the very popular and super comfy Palm Shuck in Half cut or Full cut depending on your preference!


    Finally don’t forget if you have left it to the last minute, we can always email you a gift voucher for you to print at home and pop it inside a card, saving the day!


    Thank you to all our customers old and new, we would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year, see you all on the water in 2019!
