We are so excited to offer some cool new paddling gear with the Happy Paddlin’ message and vibe! More importantly, the sales of this gear will directly benefit outreach partners that help kids get out paddling. Our first partnership with the Headwaters Boathouse will directly give an opportunity for outings to kids that might not normally have the chance to spend time on a kayak, canoe or paddleboard. If you know how just a few on-water experiences when you were young helped plant the love for time on the water now then you know how cool it is to pass that on! Buy a Hat, Drybag or any item with the HP logo and you’ll be helping kids get outdoors!

GOT Kids “Children in our community are home and need support. Without the usual daily interaction with other children and the adults at school, children are more likely to experience loneliness, depression, and engage in self harm. Many do not have basic supplies such as crayons, paper, pencils, or books all of which can be the source of entertainment, expression, and education. Join the effort to keep our children engaged in positive activities during this health crisis.” Donate Here
