More About Us
Sweetwater Kayaks sells kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards for the beginner paddler, the expedition minded paddler, and everyone in-between. We don’t just sell boats and paddleboards; 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.
Our ACA and BCU certified coaches have put hundreds of paddlers on the water over the last 20 years, and are skilled at matching your size, physical capabilities, and paddling skills with the right kayak. Our staff’s experience in fitting and training comes from over two decades and hundreds of paddlers we’ve paddled with, mentored to, or coached on the sea.
So whether you are a beginner learning the basics, an intermediate paddler looking to add to or enhance your skills, or a seasoned paddler wanting to fine tune your paddling, we can provide you with the training you need. So let our skills, knowledge, and experience enhance your comfort, fun, and safety for your style of paddling.
