Fast Sea Kayaks and Surf Skis to rent for the Race

Sea Kayak Oban's fleet of fast sea kayaks and surf skis is available to rent for the race on Saturday 27th August 2016 .

Epic Surf Skis V5, V6, V7, V8 and V10 sport

Valley sea kayaks Nordkapp 40, Etain 17.1, 17.5 and 17.7

Northshore sea kayaks Ocean 17 and Ocean 17.6

We have several tandem sea kayaks available to rent, including the much-loved and well-travelled tandem Northshore Atlantic 2.

The tandem kayaks are a great way to travel and explore, there is enough space between the 2 paddlers that you don't have to paddle in sync (although it will help your time).
They are faster and more stable than single sea kayaks and require less effort per person to achieve a good speed.
This makes them ideal if you fancy taking part but feel a bit shy or unsure of your endurance and stamina.

Prices are £30 per single kayak / surf ski and £50 per tandem. 
Boats are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Payment needs to be made at time of booking.
All boats are to be collected from the shop Sea Kayak Oban and returned there after the race.
Proceeds are donated to RNLI.

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.

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 .

For the 8th year in a row, Gus Brydon organised the Oban Sea Kayak Race around Kerrera. It's always really nice to see on the water sea kayak that we sold, today it was Anne in her Valley Sirona 16.1, Joan in her Valley Avocet LV and Sharon in her yellow Tahe Marine Mini LC PE.
