The Paddlers

My name is Tom Thorpe and I have been specializing in sea kayaking for the last six years. I have been involved with the outdoor industry for 15 years and I’m fortunate to live in Devon and Cornwall, UK.
Living in the south west allows me to surf, climb and of course kayak.

This website is the conclusion of many years of sports promotion and encouraging others to get involved and enjoy the ocean. I am a qualified kayak guide and coach but I feel passionately that its not Paper that defines us, its all about the water. I look forward to seeing you out on the water, but if not, come and find me at one of the kayak gatherings or symposiums and let’s have a beer.

I am supported by:

NRS equipment. NRS make some of the best PFD’s, Dry Clothing and paddling hardwear in the world. NRS equipment is made to be used in the environment and is extensively kit tested before it becomes available to be purchased in your local kit shop.

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

SKUK. Sea Kayaking UK, Nigel Dennis Kayaks are known globally as one of the best sea kayak manufacturers. Based in north wales, SKUK develop boats to be used in extreme locations. The SKUK team is fantastic and for me, the Romany, the Explorer and the Quantum kayaks provide me with everything I need.

I work closely with Rick Cooper from British Sea Kayaks, the dealer for SKUK in the South West. Devon and Cornwall.
