Gifts for sea kayakers

Sea-theme necklace by OrshiCrafts, books, jewellery, etc

If you make kayaking equipment, or crafts with a theme of sea kayaking or the maritime environment, or relevant books, tell us about it and we'll describe it here.

Do you make hats, T-shirts, greetings cards, jewellery with a maritime theme? Set out your stall, free. Send in an image of your product(s) as a JPEG or GIF of up to 280 pixels wide by 210 high, and up to 10 kb; a description in up to 12 words; typical price; typical cost of delivery within the UK; and your website URL or e-mail address. Ours is at Get In Touch.

We particularly like products which are durable and made with renewable resources, or likely to make people identify more strongly with the coastal environment.


Small publishers driven more by enthusiasm than commerce:

• Qajaq USA sells some sea kayaking books and publications including "The Little Kayak Book" by John Brand. Order online from www.qajaqusa.org
• Anybody else?

For a list of some specialist commercial publishers, see Books & Magazines. See also Paul Caffyn's list of many past and present books relevant to sea kayaking.
