Sea Kayaking is all we do! So don't be fooled by the competition that can only offer cheap prices.
In 1999, we built a beautiful retail shop and rental centre to showcase the latest sea kayaks and accessories available in Australia. We have carefully selected products that meet our exacting standards of quality, durability, function and value. We personally use everything we sell so be assured that you can buy from us with confidence that you are getting the best product to meet your needs.
We are very proud of our friendly staff of professional "life-style" Sea Kayakers who all paddle for pleasure when they are working or playing. We encourage you to take advantage of their broad range of knowledge and paddling experience to help you choose proper paddling equipment to maximise fun and safety. They are also more than happy to discuss which Instructional Clinics or Guided Trips may be right for you.
We realise that selecting a proper sea kayak and all the related gear can be a daunting prospect especially with so many choices, not to mention colours! Let us share with you all the technical information you need to make this an easy decision about selecting a kayak, paddle, PFD and other useful safety equipment. We'll happily answer your questions about design, materials, construction and prices. And then we will encourage you to get out on the water and try for yourself. All the kayaks look great in the shop but they really come into their own on the water. So even as a beginner you will notice which kayaks fit you well.
Our waterfront location makes getting into kayaking easy! We encourage you to take advantage of our Red Carpet Treatment and "Try Before You Buy" to ensure that the kayak and equipment is right for you. For a fee of $25 for plastic boats and $40 for fibreglass boats you can try out as many kayaks as you like and ask unlimited questions. Then, if you purchase a kayak from us within 30 days, we will refund the demo fee off the price of the kayak.
So, if you in the market for great kayaking equipment or advice, you owe it to yourself to come to Kettering and experience the difference a specialty sea kayak shop can offer.
The Roaring 40 Shop is located at the Oyster Cove Marina, Ferry Road, Kettering.
