Welcome to ThePaddleHut. My name is Mike Robinson and firstly I am a professional coach.
ThePaddleHut started in 2004 when I was searching for appropriate sized equipment for my team. Specifically I was looking for small racing kayaks and paddles that actually fit smaller, lighter athletes. After a lot of searching I found ELIO making great boats for this group. Since there was no dealer in North America we started to bring them in.
Since then I continue to coach and search for great equipment for my teams. When I find good boats, paddles and gear that we can't easily get locally I add it to my store.
We provide equipment for both novice and champion athletes. I invite you to browse the items on this site. If you have any question please feel you can send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org If you are not sure on sizing or if the paddle, boat etc is right for your experience, build or style feel free to ask for advice. I will give my best opinion.
If you can not find what you are looking for I may still have it but it may not be listed on the web store. Send me a note and I will check what we have in storage or try to find another source for you.
