Kayaks, Canoes, and SUPs

With so many bodies of water in our own back yard, it's hard not to end up on the water on a day off, relaxing evening after work, or early morning exercise. One of the unique things about kayaks, sups, and canoes are they open up new areas you can access even if the water is low on a shallow section of a river not accessible by a motor boat or shallow coves on the lake. No matter what your reasoning for kayaking, we know that time on the water is time well spent so grab your friends, family, or pup and get out on the water! We carry Perception, and Wilderness System Kayaks, Mad River Canoes and NRS stand up paddle boards along with the paddles, life jackets (specific for kayak and canoes), accessories, and apparel for all your kayaking, suping, and canoeing needs! 

Quality USA Made Kayaks and Canoes

We take great pride in buying quality goods that are made to function with a purpose and tough enough to last through years of adventures and abuse. We are able to do this because the gear we sell is the same gear we use when we go to the lake or river. This is why we carry Canoes and Kayaks that are made 100% in the USA that come with a warranty that helps you rest easier knowing that a company stands behind what they make. As well as warranties the kayaks we sale are built tough and we won't skip on the thickness of a kayak, like big box stores, to save a penny while sacrificing the quality of the boat. In other words you get what you pay for and if your looking for a kayak that you won't need to replace the following year then let MSL show you the difference between local knowledge of the rivers and what you'll find at big stores more interested in wallet than your needs. 

MSL Knows What's SUP! NRS Stand Up Paddle Boards Available Now!

These NRS inflatable paddle boards are made of high quality PVC using Drop Stitch technology which is the same material and methods used to make white water rafts and allows the boards to be inflated to a rock hard integrity. This also makes our paddle boards great for the rivers and lakes in our area because they can handle the abuse of bumping off of rocks while floating and unloading that can cause dings and even destroy a fragile fiberglass paddle board. Another awesome thing about these SUPs is that they fit in a backpack (included) for easy transport to and from the river or lake and take only seconds to pump up with high-pressure pump. (also included) To top it all off they come with a 3 year warranty and unlimited fun on the SoHo, now that's what's SUP!
