Kayaking seems to me the perfect hobby choice, free access to a changeable, challenging and dynamic environment,and great allround excercise, but the sea can be a testing environment, not just for paddler development but for equipment and it can be expensive making poor choices with kayaks, paddles and a large range of equipment required for us to be safe and comfortable. Now through SSK I am able to offer my customers the benefit of my own experiences good and bad, offering tried and tested products and services that I believe in, its a small business run by me "Steve Jones" fascilitating the needs of kayakers in the South of England and beyond, I provide a personal service for clients who would like to purchase SKUK/Nigel Dennis kayaks and Celtic Paddles. Along with a range of other sea kayak items from top suppliers within the UK. The full SKUK range of kayaks can be ordered through us, and collected from Blandford or delivered direct. Celtic paddles can be sent direct to your door within 3-5 days as well as that we offer a wide range of trolleys & roof rack systems. I aim to develop a relationship with my customers helping them make decisions that help them now and in the long term and will hopefully save them from making cost mistakes.
I am dedicated to SKUK/NDK Kayaks because I firmly believe it is not possible to buy a better quality kayak. As a small business I have time for you, I am happy to help you choose a kayak that is perfect for you both in size and temperament for your favourite type of paddling, in addition I will outfit your new kayak free of charge to give you great all round contact that will help improve your whole paddling experience.
