Stockport, United Kingdom (PressExposure) November 28, 2009 -- If you are a lover of canoes and kayaks, or know someone who is, you can find a whole host of Christmas presents for them at Brookbank Canoes and Kayaks. They have stores across the UK in Perth, Warwickshire, Stockport, Carlisle and Lancaster and their new London store is opening on 5th December at Lea Road in Waltham Abbey so go along there if you can, it should be a great day out.
Of course, for those of you who cannot get to the stores all their ranges are available on-line, so you can have your gifts delivered direct to your door, just click onto www.canoesandkayaks.co.uk and browse to your hearts content. If you live near Perth and are busy at work during the week and in the water at weekends you may find their late night opening a boon. The Perth store is open late every Thursday from now until Christmas.
What to buy may be a problem because the choice is vast, they stock canoes, used canoes, kayaks, used sit on top kayaks, sit on top kayaks and all the paddles, clothing, safety gear and accessories that you could possibly want. But if you are looking for a stocking filler here are a couple of great suggestions. There is a brilliant coaching DVD by Gordon Brown, this one is a little unusual because as well as eight coaching sessions aimed at beginners and intermediates that will improve you beyond measure, it also contains the story of a sea kayaking trip round the Isle of Skye. The footage is incredible both in showing the beauty of the island but also in showing the experience of the trip.
Another great stocking filler is a book by Simon Willis, published by Pesda Press, called The Scottish Sea Kayak Trail. This describes and illustrates, in beautiful detail, the 300 mile sea kayak trail from the Isle of Gigha to the Summer Islands. Not only does it show the route, flora, fauna and history but it also looks at the environmental impact of sea kayaking in the area. This one will have you planning your trip, which the book breaks down into 4 sections of holiday length or one major trip.
Regardless of your experience level you will find Brookbank Canoes and Kayaks a veritable Aladdinâs cave for all your canoe and kayak needs. Look it up now and donât forget to tell your friends and family where to find your presents.
