Who are we when we’re at home then? What makes us different and why should you trust us?

At the risk of sounding too cheesy or self congratulatory, Paddlesports Megastore strives for honesty. The staff here are paddlers, they use the gear, they own the gear, and they have opinions. Lots of opinions. ‘.

When a customer comes into the store the primary goal is not necessarily selling them the shiniest product for the priciest tag. The goal here is to understand what the customer is actually looking for and give them all the information they need to make a well informed decision. Information, experience & opinion not sale hungry tactics.

Our current challenge is trying to bring this in-store experience to the website. We are working towards customizing the site to tell you the things you need to know before making a purchase.

Maybe what you are looking for is cheap and cheerful? You’re not out on the water to win races but to have fun with your kids. You want something easy, robust and practical. That’s okay by us and we’ve got you covered.

Maybe you are serious about paddling? You want the best money can buy from a reputable high-end brand that’s been in the business for years. We’re jealous and very happy for you and we can help.

Maybe you don’t quite know what you want? we can help – let us guide you through the heady world of all things paddlesports.

We are can educate you, we can guide you, we can show you options, we can regale you with opinions, but we can’t make the decision for you. Our aim is to give you as much information as we can so you can make an informed decision.
