———————– More About Us ————————
Sweetwater Kayaks sells kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards for the novice paddler, the expedition minded paddler, and everyone in-between. We have put hundreds of paddlers on the water over the last 20 years, and are skilled at matching your size, shape, physical capabilities, and paddling skills with the right kayak , thereby enhancing your comfort, fun, and safety for your style of paddling.
We don’t just sell boats and boards; we are a full service paddle sports store with the best trained staff in the area. Everyone on our staff is a coach and possesses certification from the American Canoe Association (ACA), British Canoe Union (BCU), or both. So whether you are a beginner looking to learn the basics, an intermediate paddler looking to add to or enhance your skills, or a seasoned paddler looking to fine tune or bomb proof your paddling, we can provide you with the training you need.
Our experience in fitting and training comes from the thousands of miles we’ve paddled on the sea over two decades with thousands of paddles.
