The Paddlers

Thanks for visiting my website!

My name is Tom Thorpe. Maximum Sea Kayaking is a project which I am passionate about. I love the ocean and the natural environment and sea kayaks allow me to fully engage with nature and our planet. I have been kayaking, canoeing and guiding since 2003 and I am now a specialist and dedicated sea kayaker. My aim is to inspire and enable people to get on the water.

Right now I am working hard getting my workshop sorted and working on my Ratboats. Ratboats is a restoration and modernization project involving classic sea kayaks, making them fully functional, expedition capable craft once again.

Come and find me on Plymouth sound where Ill be training in the FSK’s or cruising with friends. Or alternatively, drop into the Plymouth workshop for a chat and a coffee.

VE Paddles. VE paddles make the strongest and most functional sea kayak paddles on the market. The shapes are modern and functional and its great to work with VE on product testing and innovation
