We are supporting Ocean Valour 2015 Charity Event

Here at AS Water sports we like to support many different charity events and causes. Some big, some small, local and international.
This time it is a bit of both. Local people on an international scale.
One of the participants in this fund raising challenge is none other than upcoming extreme kayaker, Dartmoor local and friend, Tom Rainey.
Read this to find out why we wanted to get involved.

In May 2015 Tom Rainey and Sam Coombs will spend up to 3 months rowing across the North Atlantic to raise £250,000 for the Brain Tumour Charity. Tom and Sam, as Ocean Valour, will be the youngest ever team to row from the mainland USA to mainland UK, and they will be entirely unsupported.

Deep Water Solo climbing competition.

The last weekend in August see's the UK's first Deep Water Solo (freeclimb) climbing competition come to the Quay in the heart of Exeter.
This competition is the first of its kind in the UK and will be a big event for the Quay, Exeter and the UK climbing scene.
Why are we so excited about it?
Because its being hosted by our friends at Quay Climbing and its right outside our front door!
We will be open as normal but there are some things to take note of:

We will NOT be doing demos on the canal as it will be busy and congested with safety boats and falling people!

No tuition or coach sessions, Liam our head coach is co-ordinating the water safety team.

Please be patient, the shop wil…   [Read More]

Tuition and Trip News!

Hello. A quick update on a whats coming up at AS Watersports.
We run a number of kayak/canoe events and courses right from our Quay side shop.
A little slice of adventure in the city!
Free events
A little appetiser to see if you enjoy kayaking, meet the shop and get some tips. The taster takes place on the very sheltered water outside the shop. A mixture of different boats to try so instead of us explaining the difference between boats you get to feel the difference!
Here comes the Summer! Our regular tasters are for over 18’s over but these three sessions are for people between 10 and 17 years old. Kayaking is a fun, safe healthy activity. We want to m…   [Read More]


The Vikings have landed!

Look out landlubbers, the Vikings have landed.
We are excited to see the Viking kayaks fishing kayaks have now arrived!
Viking kayaks are fresh in from New Zealand. This range of fishing kayaks are perfectly suited to UK waters, much more so than some of their US counterparts.
The hull shapes can really handle some rough water and the decks are realyl well set out. Bow to stern these sit on tops are laid out with fishing in mind.
We are stocking the Profish Reload, Profish 440 and Profish 400.
NB: not all the added extras come with the UK available range (they don't included seats or paddles)
Demos are available to take away on the Reload and 440 and the 400 can be tried in the canal as well.

Tootega Come and try it Tour.

We are pleased to be hosting Tootega kayaks as their South West stop on the Summer "Come and try it tour"

So take this opportunity to come and give them and the rest of the range a go.
There are boats for fun, family and fishing. So pretty much some thing for everyone. They are all designed and manufactured in the UK as well.

2014 Astral Sea Wolf PFD

The new Sea Wolf from Astral is due in any minute. 

No real change from last year apart from a fantastic new yellow colour. This is really bright and visable but not gawdy. 

The articulated fit means the main part of the bouyancy aid hugs the body and the front panel is allowed to move freely as you twist. The big clam shell front pocket stores all the items you need close to hand and the hydrovent back panel keeps you cool in hot weather. 

Definately a great sea kayaking pfd for summer.
