Red Paddle Co Highlight – Why AS?

The Shop

Established in 1982, we have been supplying the south west paddlesports community in Exeter for over 40 years!
Just under 15 years ago we noticed that there was a fast growing interest in stand up paddleboarding. As so much of the equipment and apparel that is produced and used for kayaking and canoeing is perfect for paddleboarding, it was an easy decision to introduce the sport into the shop.


As the sport has grown, we have gradually increased the range we have in store, becoming the top Red Paddle Co Preferred Dealer in the south west. We are very proud of our waterside location and large demo fleet, allowing us to get people out on the canal and try the boards for themselves. There is no substitute for getting on a few boards and comparing them back to back!


It’s not all about the boards, we all know that wearing the right equipment can make even the most challenging conditions an exciting adventure! We don’t stock anything we don’t use ourselves, if we don’t trust it, why should we expect you to? With a wide range of clothing from wetsuits to drysuits, buoyancy aids and everything in between, we can get you set up so you will be comfortable whatever the weather.

The Location

We like to think we are in the perfect location, being right beside the water we let you try any Red Paddle Co paddleboard, kayak or canoe out on the water.

The historic Exeter shipping canal is sheltered with no tide or current affecting the water, the perfect place to compare different models or even try paddleboarding for the first time with our paddleboard hire or tuition.


There are also plenty of restaurants and coffee shops nearby; including Lutzy’s, The Topsham Brewery and Rockfish. Make a day out of your trip to Devon and add a session at the Quay Climbing Centre right outside our door!

Our Red Paddle Co Paddleboard Demo Fleet

We have all of the Red Paddle Co range in-store available to try, the biggest selection of Red Paddle demo boards in the South West!

Come and give them all a go and see which is your favourite!
