CONNECT

YOUR CONNECTION TO THE WATER

Our History

Connect Kayaks was established in 2014 by current owner Gonçalo Mota in municipality of Amarante, Portugal.

As a student of Mechanical Engineering with an innate passion for paddling and paddling craft, it was only a matter of time before the stars aligned and Connect Kayaks was born. Gonçalo had previously spent time developing a foundation of knowledge and skill for boat construction working for other manufacturers. As his passion for designing and constructing paddling craft grew Gonçalo began to realise that his future happiness lied in starting his own business, sharing the joy his craft brought him with his customers.

Connect Kayaks has developed into one of the world’s most respected manufacturers. Every design and construction detail is considered and continually improved to ensure Connect Kayaks remains at the forefront of paddling craft manufacturers.

Connect Kayaks is proud of the business it has become but even more proud of the athletes that represent us on the water; without the athletes we are worthless. It is for this reason Connect Kayaks will always put the athlete first!

Warranty

Nobody is perfect and we at Connect Kayaks know that mistakes can happen. What we want you to know, is that if things don’t go to plan we have got your back and all our craft come we the Connect Kayaks warranty.

In the unfortunate situation that you receive your craft and it isn’t exactly what you ordered, or there is a manufacturing problem with the craft, we will be more than happy to honour our warranty and make things right.

However, the warranty may be forfeited if the craft is damaged as a result of transportation by an individual/business/company, if you try to repair damage to the craft yourself, the warranty label is removed or if you use the craft for a purpose other than what it was intended for.

In the case that you receive your craft by transport, please confirm by checking the craft carefully that it is intact and possesses no damage. The moment you sign the delivery document, you acknowledge that there is no damage to the craft and thus it is no longer possible to claim on the warranty provided.

Maintenance

Please be aware of the precautions you should take when you receive your new Connect craft.

  • Do not expose your craft to the sun for extended periods of time.
  • Do not expose your craft to excessive heat.
  • Do not tie your craft down to hard surfaces or with excessive force.
  • If your craft is damaged, use only a qualified and experienced repairer.
  • Do not store or transport your craft inside a wet cover at any time.
