COVID-19 Shopping Procedures

How to shop with AS Watersports

To to create a safe and enjoyable shopping experience we have introduced a number of ways to shop with us. To manage the number of customers in the shop we are running an appointment system. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.

If you are new to kayaking, canoeing or paddleboarding we specialise in giving great advice so you can get the right product for you to enjoy with confidence. Kayaks, paddleboards, canoes, sit-ons and inflatable kayaks are still in high demand ,with pressures on supply coming from all areas, our orders are now in place so we know what models are coming and when. We will be carrying stock, but pre-ordering to ensure you are ready for the summer is highly recommended, there is very little scope for us adding additional orders or colour options. As always, we have a complete range of Demo models for you to try on the water so you can purchase with confidence. We have a good range of soft kit available in-store, but we are seeing the same supply issues.


Option #1 – Book an Appointment

Simply contact us beforehand and let us know what products you are interested in and we will arrange a time-slot. When you arrive you will have access to the entire shop floor to browse at your leisure with staff on hand if you require assistance.

No Queues – No Pressure – No Stress

  • No purchase too small.
  • Help & advice available from experienced staff.
  • Flexible appointment times – pop in for 15 minutes or book longer.
  • Free on-the-water Kayak, Canoe & Paddleboard demo’s.
  • Maximum 6 people from the same household.
  • Sanitisation Station available to use in-store.

Option #2 – Click, Confirm, Collect

If you would like to collect your purchase from the shop, we are operating a contact free collection service. As we may not be able to fulfil your complete order immediately, please wait for us to confirm your collection is ready. More information on our Click, Confirm, Collect service can be found here.

Option #3 – Dispatch Orders

As always, we will be dispatching orders for in-stock items placed on the website, phone and e-mail.  We have had to make some changes to our delivery pricing, to get the latest price, please add all items to your basket and use the delivery calculator in the checkout. Delivery to UK Mainland for standard size items is still free over £65!


Hire & Tuition

Unfortunately our Kayak, Canoe & Paddleboard Hire and Kayak & Paddleboard Lessons remain closed. We are hoping to have updates on this available soon!

We would like to thank all of our customers for their understanding in these uncertain times. Please keep up to date on our Facebook Page for any updates on affected opening times.

Stay active, healthy and, if you’re able to do so safely and in line with government recommendations, getting out in nature is great for the body and mind!
