Go Kayaking Best bits for 2020

In what’s been the most difficult year, we thought it would be best to look back at some of the highlights of 2020 with our best bits.

1 – We opened a new store in Llangollen

In February, we open a new store at Mile End Mill in Llangollen. We have a fleet of Pyranha Kayaks available to demo and the shop offers convenience for paddlers as they see the latest gear and try it on. It’s a shame that it had to close in March for lockdown, and then again in the 2nd lockdown. We’re hoping for more consistent opening times in 2021.

2 – Some gorgeous boats were made for our customers

At our Runcorn store, we did our best in unusual circumstances to get as many of you the gear you need for your staycations, and some of the boats coming through were amazing! Including this amazing Carbon Jed, Wood trim custom Broadland and a custom Sparkly Volan.

3 – Seeing all your paddling photos

Despite a difficult year, paddlers like you, were still sending us photos and making us jealous of your adventures. We loved them all, some of the best ones are below including Stuart & Wendy McNair on the most tranquil lake in their Prospector 15, Alasdair Davidson and co in their fleet of Virgos & Scorpios from Go Kayaking on the Menai Straits, a customer of Paddle 365 checking out Chester Weir in their Star Inflatable Kayak and Emma Kitchen and co showing us what paddling is all about. There are so many photos we could choose from! Many thanks for sending them in, and keep them coming!

4 Us staff still managed to get paddling this year

One of the highlights of the year has to be when we actually managed to get paddling. Store Manager Andy and his wife on the local River Weaver. Dan Jones paddling the River Swale in the Autumnal rains, Grant Kay surfing the Ozone at Rhosneigr early in the year, John showing us that paddling in the rain isn’t so bad if you have the right gear, and new to the team Andy proving that he can canoe, but was it part of the job interview?
