Made Kayaks

Located on Gabriola Island in British Columbia, Made Kayaks builds traditional skin on frame kayaks and paddles with the use of a CNC (computer numerical control) machine.

Ron Crown, the owner and operator of Made Kayaks, crafts beautiful skin on frame kayaks and Greenland style paddles. The skin on frame kayaks he creates are fuselage-style designs that are lightweight, fast, durable and easily built. A kayak kit from Made Kayaks will give you the chance to build your own kayak knowing that the pieces and parts going into your craft are symmetrical, high quality and balanced.

Ocean River Sports is the sole supplier of the Squid skin on frame kayak kit; a small-sized craft perfect for the youth or petite paddler.
