Help us keep the coast clean!

Every year, lots of plastic are spilled on our islands in the Bohuslän archipelago. Help us keep our unique coastline clean from debris thrown into the ocean.

Welcome to the kayak shop !

The first time you buy a kayak, it's very easy to feel confused. This is especially true if you listen to too many tips.

Below we leave some advice that we hope may be helpful in choosing a suitable kayak.
