Demo boats in the East of England

Post by powereduppackman »

Hello,

I recently moved to the flatlands of Cambridgeshire and I'm thinking about getting a sea kayak for weekend entertainment on the Norfolk coast. I'm after something composite, that I can use for island hopping and small expeditions in the future. My main thing is WW (but that seems a lot harder to get to now!), but I've done a fair bit on the sea, only with borrowed club boats where I used to live.

Is there anything in these parts or do I need to head up to Anglesey?

Cheers,
- Chris.

Not quite as far as Anglesey - Rob Davis of Southeast Kayaking in Kent has a demonstrator fleet of Rockpool,kayaks.

Desperate Measures in Nottingham could be worth a try; they do sea boats. There's also a place on the Thames (Shepperton perhaps), near Heathrow - Canoe the Whitewater Centre(?). In east London on the Thames Mikhail and Natalie Maderova are Tiderace dealers.

Good luck.

Hi Chris,
I bought my boat from Shepperton, they were very helpful.
