Who are Escape Watersports?
Escape Watersports was the result of many years working and playing within the watersports industry. We employ real people, who are able to call upon their experiences and provide the best advice possible.
Founded in 2011, our mission right from the off was to offer online customers the same high quality service that they had come to expect when visiting a traditional watersports shop in person.
Fast forward to 2018, we are supplying watersports enthusiasts all over Europe with their favourite clothing and equipment.
Our warehouses and showroom are located just a couple of miles from Porthcawl, on the South Wales coastline. We’re lucky to have the beach on our doorstep, as well as some of the UK’s best white water runs just round the corner. We work hard, but we play hard too!

Our roots trace back to the year 2000 when Richard (having paddled since he was a child) was offered the chance to buy a canoe business. Loving the industry but not liking the company he decided to set up his own – opening a shop in Gloucestershire and leading to where we are today! Continue reading
I travelled just under two hours North for the official opening of North East Kayaks and Paddles. When you travel so far to a store you hope that the range of stock is up to scratch and that your journey hasn’t been wasted. This was certainly the case today. Loads of kit from Palm, PeakUK, Nookie, HF, Werner, Robson, Dagger, Pyranha, P&H, Wavesport, Liquid Logic, Sweet, Shredready plus lots more. There seemed to be plenty of stock and a wide range of sizes and colours. Here are a few shots from today.
