Paddle Expo trade show for all things watersport, 19-21 Sept 2017, in Nuremberg
It was clear at Paddle Expo last week that all manufacturers are putting their prices up from this autumn, due to exchange rates causing increase in parts and materials.

Imported from the States, Kokatat prices are going up from 1st November 2017 on some items that we stock, but not all of them.

The purpose of this article is to give you the heads up on the range we carry in our shop in Oban and online .
Our most popular drysuit, the Kokatat Gore-Tex Expedition drysuit for men, remains available in Electric Blue and Tangerine Orange.
We stock it in the shop in Electric Blue in Medium, Large and XL and we would be happy to order it for you in Tangerine if you prefer.

However the price is increasing from £1,199.99 to £1,249.99 from 1st November 2017 .

So any ordered before this deadline will be at the current price, saving you the £50 increase
Your club discount applies if you are a member of one of the sea kayak clubs we work with.

Captain Liz is a surfer, writer, eco/spiritual activist, & brand ambassador for patagonia, among others, living aboard her sailboat Swell & seeking to inspire others to live their dreams!

Most people are impressed by a world traveler. But, if that doesn’t do it for you, her commitment to a goal and her ability to manifest an unconventional life is unarguably inspiring. Liz Clark is a practitioner of relentless positivity and loving kindness — which she truly thinks can change the world. She writes about her travels, conscious eating, and making a better world on her website . But, people who are interested in her life and want more are in luck. Patagonia Books asked her to write a book, Sea Kayak Oban pre-ordered it 18 months ago and now, one 100,000+ word manuscript about her voyages later, it’s happening. In April of 2018, Swell: A Sailing Surfer’s Voyage of Awakening   will be available everywhere.
