Northshore Ocean


The North Shore Ocean pushes the boundaries of sea kayak design with its innovative "wing" design feature that creates a fast and stable hull with superb edging capabilities. The Ocean has a low profile deck which reduces windage but suprisingly still offers a dry ride; this gives you greater control and confidence in the worst of conditions. The crisp edges of the Northshore Ocean and rails that finish just behind the seat, make edging a breeze and the way the edges blend in, reduces drag when turning giving you a smooth, sharp and confident feel.

Available in two sizes, the Ocean 17 for the smaller paddler and Ocean 17'6" for the larger paddlers.

We offer a delivery service for the Northshore Ocean throughout the UK & Ireland to home and work addresses.

Delivery times are estimates based on years of experience; we do not offer a guaranteed timed delivery service. Our overnight service works well for the core more densely populated areas of the UK for Clothing and Equipment orders. However more remote less densely populated areas will not be covered by a next day service.

Delivery of canoes and kayaks is classed as “ugly freight” because mechanical handling and automatic parcel processing cannot be used; therefore a delivery time of 3-5 working days is more realistic. For remote location that delivery time will be dependent on the local courier’s ability to onward ship the goods. Not all areas of the UK are serviced by vehicles that can handle canoes and kayaks. Online orders can be tracked online using the courier’s website – tracking details will be provided. We make every effort to deliver goods within the estimated time scales.

The delivery price will be shown in the shopping basket.
