Eddyline Kayaks is a manufacturer of premier touring kayaks and paddles since 1971. Founded by legendary designer Tom Derrer and currently owned and operated independently by the Company’s management team, Eddyline pioneered vacuum bag and thermoform technology making the highest quality kayaks and paddles for sea kayaking, open water, recreational kayaking and fishing in an environmentally sound manner.

Our designs are a direct reflection of our team’s years of paddling experience and our philosophy of constant improvement.

Eddyline’s small size enables us to treat our customers as family, allowing us to communicate personally with them. In return, their passion for paddling continues to inspire us. We at Eddyline are proud to be a part of the kayaking tradition and respect the courage and ingenuity of our paddling ancestors and their passion for being on the water. We invite you to be a part of the Eddyline tradition.

For 46 years the staff at Eddyline have remained focused on building quality products and providing superior customer service. Our guiding principal is summarized in founder Tom Derrer’s quote: “If we cannot make it better than what we already know, then we are not improving and neither is the sport we love.” Eddyline has lived the philosophy of “lean manufacturing” and the notion of continuous improvement from the beginning.

Family Owned, proudly handcrafted by American workers, supporting the local economy.
