Can I paddle anywhere?
In the UK, you need a license to paddle in most of the waterways, rivers, lakes, etc.
BCU membership (Canoe England, Canoe Wales, Scotland Canoe Association and the Canoe Association of Northern Ireland) includes a licence to paddle on 5000km of Britain's waterways and canals.

Not all inland water is open to canoeists, some are privately owned or is bounded by land which is private, so do check beforehand. See Useful Web sites page.

In other countries, do check with your national kayak organisations and waterway / off-shore agencies etc.

Refurbished / rebuilt and 'As Is' kayaks
(Original kayaks not made by Wayland)

Feeling nostalgic about the good old days, years back - the days that you used to paddle a folding kayak....and you miss that particular model kayak?

If you are after a favorite but discontinued model folding kayak such as one of the many famous Klepper models that were produced between the 1950's and 2010, we may be able to help with a refurbished folder! To name a few - Klepper Blauwal 4, Klepper TS2, Klepper Aerius II (520), Klepper T8, Klepper T67, Klepper T12, Klepper Master , Tyne, Granta ....

We do have some ready stock of complete frames
in varying conditions and will supply a new replacement skin for that frame made to your requirements. If there is a particular model kayak that you are after, where we currently do not have a frame on hand, we can try locate one for you and then arrange to have a new replacement skin made for that frame. Klepper is well known to have produced high quality frames that can last a lifetime.

Frames are sold as is - any broken pieces / missing fittings will be replaced. Any varnishing etc that may be needed, can be your winter project! You decide on the replacement skin - the colour, the deck features, etc. New carry / packing bags will be included.

To keep costs down, ideally the chosen kayak model should be a model whereby the Wayland factory actually has the same model frame on hand (to use as template to make an accurate fitting skin).

Occasionally we may have complete originals - that is, a kayak with the original skin. The skin may still have a few years of life left, ideal for those who plan to only paddle a few times a year and then possibly replace the skin later.

Talk to us - tell us what you are ideally after, and we'll see what we can do for you! Complete frames that we have can only be sold with replacement skins ordered from us.

If you already have a complete folding kayak frame, but need a new replacement skin, then have a look at the Replacement Skins page. If you need spare parts for your old frame, do speak to us.

On kayaks where replacement skins is supplied, the replacement skin come standard with Wayland logo on the front port side deck unless 'No logo' is specifically requested. £40.00 surcharge to exclude logo.

Kayak frames
We will arrange to have a custom made replacement skin made to order to your specifications

Regarded as the best sailing kayak.

Width: 0.85 m

Standard Sail rig with lee boards - original cotton 2.4sqm. Additional synthetic sails - larger size. Some modifications / additions (fittings) has been done by previous owner for ease of sailing.
