Our original site, paddling.net was founded in 1998 (see the original home page) by Brian and Brent, a pair of paddling enthusiasts, with the goal of creating the best resource for canoe and kayak paddlers and a community for paddlers to share ideas and get advice.
Over the years, paddling.net grew from a small site with a few features to a comprehensive resource for all types of paddling information used each day by thousands of paddlers - kayakers, canoists, and paddleboarders.
2016 marked a massive redesign and upgrade of the site and a move from paddling.net to paddling.com, our current virtual home.
Just like on day one, we strive each day to help provide fun and useful information and resources for all types of paddlers, but that's not enough...
Paddling.com would not exist without all the great contributions of all our users who contribute to the launch site map, product reviews, message boards, places to paddle and much more. Thanks for all you do and keep up the great work.
And happy paddling from
Brian, Chief Paddling Officer
Kevin, Content Sherpa
Bryan, Digital Ninja
and the entire crew at paddling.com!
