Gift Shopping for a Paddler

While I strongly advocate supporting your local paddle sports shop, the unfortunate reality of our current economy is that there are fewer and fewer really good local paddle sports shops.  As a result, many of us have no choice but to order at least some of our gear from online sources.  In the interests of helping my students to find high quality equipment, I have put together a list of my recommended paddling accessories through the Amazon Local Associates program.

By clicking on this link, you will be taken to the Fox River Paddle Sports Local Associates page of  I have put together a list of accessories including things like life jackets, paddles, clothing, storage and transportation items.  I encourage you to use the list for information purposes.  I have added written comments for most of the items explaining things like who needs to carry certain items, important features to look for when purchasing, and level of priority in obtaining the items.

If you do happen to end up purchasing one of these items through, I would certainly appreciate it if you would consider clicking through the Fox River Paddle Sports Local Associates page to complete your transaction as SherriKayaks will receive a small percentage of the purchase price.  If you have questions as you compile your own Christmas wish list, or are attempting to buy a gift for a paddler you know, please feel free to contact me by email at, or by phone at 262-895-2008.

Happy Thanksgiving,
