PaddleMore Stories

More people, more paddling, more often.

We at PaddleMore are all about inspiring you to get out on the water and there’s no better way than through the tall tales and epic adventures of seasoned paddlers. Our featured stories range from the quick and inspirational pieces, to long and intricate expeditions, but we guarantee all of them will make you want to get out and paddle.

Our spotlight series shines a light on influential paddlers and we ask them all about their paddling careers, what they’re working on now and find out a bit more about what makes them tick both on and off the water.

Grab a brew and take a read of some of the great stories we have here from the friends of PaddleMore. If you have a story to share, click here to tell us all about it and we’ll get it online and out to the paddling community as soon as possible.
