Since 1987 the Desperate Measures shop in Nottingham has been a hub for people who love kayaking, canoeing and other water sports.
We supply top quality kit for experts, beginners, organizations and other businesses.
And we give a lot of love - to promoting our sport, introducing newcomers, offering expert advice, sourcing the latest innovations, clawing down prices and making delivery times super snappy.
Now, our stock is huge and this site is a work in progress. We've not got everything listed yet - so if you can't see what you want give us a call: odds are we can help.
