Spade Kayaks is the brainchild of Hans Mayer, an incurable optimist and motivator. At a time when a large majority of the whitewater kayaks weigh over 25 kg and innovation has to mainly satisfy marketing and profit targets, Hans recognised the opportune moment to found a company to build boats for paddlers with aspirations.
Hans has been a paddler for over 30 years. Kayak Session describes Hans like this: »Mayer has an eagle eye for new trends in paddle culture. And he has the energy to transform his visions into action.«
We are proud to be distributing this amazing kayak line in N America.
