Who are Robin Hood Watersports? Tell us a little about the company and its history.
A family run business first opened in a garage at Robin Hood cottage over 30 years ago. These were the beginnings of the business but we now trade from our purpose built premises which are located just south of Leeds, UK. Just off junction 27 of the M62. We specialize in a number of Watersports from scuba diving to windsurfing and of course kayaking and canoeing. We also stock a large amount of snowboarding gear for those colder winter months.
Is there one unique selling point you guys want to shout about?
We have a purpose built swimming pool for you to test out gear before you buy!
Which product/brand does every staff member have in his or her kit bag?
We all have a different taste in kit but Sweet is one brand we all love and own.
What is your best selling product?
It varies but it seems that we UK boaters love a good dry suit, especially since its getting cold out on the river now!
In terms of new products what are your predictions for the next year?
Rumor has it that there’s a new rescue whistle in production which plays the Nokia ringtone….
Can you try before you buy?
Of course, just give us a call before you come in to make sure we have the demo kit available and that our pool is free. Our number is 01924 444 888
What kind of kit do you have available on demo?
In addition to our existing fleet of demo kayaks we’re a registered Pyranha demo centre so we have lots of Pyranha boats including the new 9R and the Small Burn 3. We also have a variety of stand up paddle boards, windsurfing and diving equipment available to hire/demo.
