Bespoke Kayak

My name is Justin, I am English, and divide my time between Ashdown Forest in Sussex and Budapest in Hungary.

I have been building kayaks for five years, initially for friends and family, later for selected customers.

Recently I decided to devote more time to this, and give more people the chance to own and enjoy one of these amazing boats.

Originally trained as an engineer, I fell in love with kayaking on a frosty November morning, and then re-discovered the pleasure of creating something from wood with my own hands when I decided to build a kayak for a friend with special physical needs.

Since then I have built several more, all bespoke to fill a particular person's unique need.
