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!

    Demo Evenings on Gloucester – Sharpness Canal

    We have been taking more and more customers out for Demo’s over the last 6 months which makes us happy and makes our customers happy, knowing they are purchasing the right boat for them.

    Demo night poster Banner

    This has inspired us to make use of the lovely Spring / Summer lighter evenings and put on weekly demo nights, on our local canal at Purton. This will give potential new customers the option to test out a few different boats to see what they feel most comfortable in. We also thought this would be a good way of raising a little bit of money for charity so we will be charging a £5.00 fee for adults which will go towards purchasing a Defibrillator for the village. These can increase the chances of a person surviving a heart attack by 50% and are something that should be in rural villages where the emergency services cannot attend as quickly as they can in cities and towns.

    Dates and Times

    We will be there from 6.00pm, on Tuesday evenings starting on the 4th April throughout the Spring into Summer. Sign up to our newsletter to receive updates by clicking here scroll to the bottom of the page where you see the words ‘enter your email for latest news’.
