We are DesignKayaks

Making high quality sea kayaks takes a dedicated team effort. Even though DesignKayaks is situated in Vejle Denmark and our factory is in George South Africa we still work closely together every day.

While DesignKayaks is a whole world of inspiration and learning, the kayaks are the core of DesignKayaks. We have designed a small but clearly defined assortment of sea kayaks. All our kayaks are our own design and the starting point is always the paddler. Every detail is carefully chosen based on what will create the best experience for different types of paddlers.

Meet the people behind DesignKayaks

We have put a lot of thought, care and love into the design of our kayaks. And it all comes from years of experience and “getting our hands wet”. Søren Telling is the man behind the boat design and Hanne Telling – with her many years of experience from LEGO is the woman behind our unique business and colour concept.
