Unsure of what to buy the paddler in your life?

Here at Go Kayaking we want to help you navigate the bewildering array of paddlesports accessories and find the perfect gift. We’ve comprised a thorough list at, but here are a few ideas to get you started.

Stocking Fillers for Paddlers

Here at Go Kayaking we survive on Dawn Roasters coffee both on and off the water. Available as both beans and pre-ground, it makes the perfect gift for paddlers (and non-paddlers) in need of a caffeine fix.


Waterproof cases are essential for those of us who play around the water, particularly with the amount of electronic devices most people carry these days. Aquapac make a fantastic range for car keys and mobile phones, along with larger devices such as VHF radios and cameras.


Know a paddler who’s looking for some fresh inspiration to get out and paddle, try our range of books and DVD’s.


After a long day on the water, why not relax with a refreshing beverage. This Pyranha bottle opener not only looks cool, but it also doubles up as a keyring.


Larger Gifts

For the paddle boarder, Red Paddle Co. have launched a wide range of accessories. From drinks bottles and caps, to towels and inflatable buoyancy aids.



A good pair of sunglasses can make all the difference, particularly with the low winter sun. Dewerstone make a stunning range here in the UK. The polarized lenses cut down the glare from the water, and the stylish wooden frames ensure they float should the worst happen.


As paddlers, we are often getting changed in car parks, lay-by’s etc, and often in bad weather. The ubiquitous DryRobe brings all the comfort of a warm, dry changing room to the middle of nowhere, all whilst saving the neighbours from an unsightly view.


The ideal gift for an open canoeist is a traditional wooden paddle. Whilst a modern, plastic blade has its place where there is a risk of damage, in open water, nothing feels like wood. Grey owl have long been a favourite of canoeists, and offer a range for all budgets and paddling situations.


“Oh the weather outside is frightful…”

But here at Go Kayaking we have a fantastic range of Dry Wear to make winter paddling trips bearable fun.
