Home > Why Buy from Paddle Dynamics (including delivery & pick-up)
When shopping for paddle craft and accessories you want someone who focuses on this as their sole business and is a specialist with water sports in general. Finding the right surfski (ski), touring/sea kayak or outrigger canoe (OC) to fit your core stability and skill level is critical to not only optimizing performance but can also be the difference between enjoying paddling or not. Buying a watercraft above your ability level for what your core balancing muscles can handle (ski) will not only not be fun but could cause safety concerns. You could be unable to stabilize the boat and tire to quickly to make it back to the launch point or tire too much to be able to safely remount your craft should you fall out, Do you want an hourly person in a multi-department sporting goods store help you make this important buying decision or someone who will asses you balance and skill level and let you demo the models which are the best fit to help you make the best decision?

At Paddle Dynamics we have the largest Epic and Think Kayak inventory in the Mid and Upper Midwest and the only Ozone inventory in the Central US. We also have expert knowledge of all paddle craft to help transition from another water sport or get you into your first water sport. We can set up demos at your location, here in beautiful central WI or somewhere in between with our unique demo trailer shown above.


Territory;
Our
territory covers the mid to upper Midwest for Epic and Think and the whole central US for Ozone Outrigger Canoes.

Surfski and Sea Kayak Delivery and Pick-Up;
For
delivery of your new surfski or sea kayak we will do our best to accommodate you by meeting you partway or at your location when we are in the area (delivery fees may apply). See the Paddle Dynamics Event Calendar 2020 for routing for a 2020 delivery.

For pick-up you can schedule a time to meet at our Wisconsin location with no delivery fees and we can also head to a nearby lake for a free lesson if desired.

Outrigger Canoe Delivery and Pick-Up;
For delivery of your new canoe we would rather personally handle your delivery instead of a third party carrier where fees are typically $400-$700.
A typical delivery fee to you from Paddle Dynamics is $200 where we meet you in route and personally show you how to rig and care for your canoe (See the Paddle Dynamics Event Calendar 2020 for routing for a 2020 delivery). We also offer a free lesson if meeting at a body of water which is deep enough for understern rudders with a shallow, preferably not rocky launch point.

For north pick-up you can schedule a time to meet at our Wisconsin location with no delivery fees and we can also head to a nearby lake for a free lesson if desired.

Now for south pick-up with the addition of our
new Lafayette, LA Warehouse opening March 2020 you can schedule a pick up for a nominal fee of $75 (payment will be included on your invoice from Paddle Dynamics). This fee covers the warehouse manager meeting you at the storage facility, inspecting your canoe and its parts, going over how to unpack, rig and repack your new canoe as well as helping to make sure you have adequate racking for transport.
