Kanumessa - Industry Trade Show in Germany

If you are in Nuremberg (Nurnberg) the first part of October, don't miss visiting Kanumessa, the largest Kayak (kajak) and canoe (kanu) sports show in Europe!

Last year we introduced our sails to a very receptive audience of shop owners from Italy to Finland and all points in between. Check out our international dealer listings on our website.

Canary Islands - WindPaddle Sailing

Our new retailer in the Canary Islands sent us a nice pic of the yellow "Adventure" sail. He tied the sheet to the top of his life vest using a quick-release snap.

We wish we were there!

Jon Turk (one of our "Team Riders") will be presenting Tuesday P.M. at Hood River's Columbia Center for the Arts.

Living Magically, Acting Practically - an evening of short films and stories.

From Jon's own website;

"For almost forty years I have wandered through exotic and remote landscapes and returned to write and speak about my adventures, the people, and the environments that I have been lucky enough to encounter.”

This will be a great talk from one of today's most educated, experienced and thought-provoking adventurers.

New WindPaddle Cruiser sail review.

New WindPaddle Cruiser sail review.

Hans Heupink of Holland just finished an independent sail review.

Here's his summary:


The Windpaddle offered this paddler a lot of sailing fun. Without any serious sailing experience I sailed within minutes. Most important for me is the versatility of the Windpaddle. You can use it on any craft and it doesn’t turn a kayak or canoe into a complex, heavy sailing craft (which I would end up sailing instead of paddling). The boats stay real kayaks and canoes, I can paddle them like I always did, and when I want I can catch the wind with the Windpaddle. I didn’t know before that sailing can be so uncomplicated ;-). It is great to experience how a simple breeze moves you across the water faster than you can paddle. Sailing is fun!
