The EK Online Store Gets Serious!


Despite all original intentions of Expedition Kayaks being a fun little side business to keep Rob & I entertained, the reality now is that seven years down the track it's grown to the point that we have to treat it as a proper entity. We're even considering a mission statement, KPI's and a campaign where we'll endlessly write about how passionate we are, so far these have only made draft format, and only after about 11pm at noisy paddlesports events. With ukulele backing music. Stay tuned for the final document.

So, if we're going to pretend we know what we're doing, we should at least look like we know what we're doing, and today we've launched a brand new online store to replace our folksy little effort that has skipped around the boards of the web since 2007.

We've categorised things more comprehensively, added more than 30 brand new products, with a bucketload on the way from great paddlesports companies like Reed, NRS & Peak UK, and introduced for the first time a range of products from KajakSport in Finland, including the full range of LRC hatches.

In the background we're busy testing products sent to us in the aftermath of the Kanumesse event in Germany, and will have some very cool new things up online over the coming months.

We have also added in the new Lendal USA X-Range Kinetik paddles, with more in that range landing before Xmas.

For the bargain hunters, we have listed some run-out specials, ranging from NRS Hydroskin & Cags, to half a dozen great quality ex-demo paddles.

The store can be reached through the link on our home page, and all transactions are encrypted through our 128bit security system. We aim to dispatch on the day the goods are ordered subject to stock, and of course freight is free, nationally, on all orders over $50. 

Our aim is, and always has been, to make an overseas purchase essentially redundant, by keeping our prices as closely aligned as we can manage to the prices you see for our products online overseas.

Take a tour & let us know what you think!
