The Gold Coast is known Australia wide as a place of fun and sun. With our great weather, warm climate, theme parks, beaches and extensive waterways, there’s always a new adventure around the corner. Whether you’re a local or a holiday maker, here are some of the ways to enjoy the beautiful waterways on the Gold Coast. Grab your car and tie down your favourite water sport equipment to your roof racks and have fun!
There are many fabulous places to canoe in northern N.S.W., Gold Coast, and the Sunshine Coast. If you love the outdoors and the water, canoeing can be a great way to have fun while keeping fit. Canoes can be ideal for travelling long distances.
The word Kayak means ‘hunter’s boat’ and as the name suggests was originally used by the Inuit people for hunting. Early kayaks were made from animal skin such as seal skin stretched over a wood or bone frame making it a very quiet boat.
It’s important that you secure your canoe, kayak, or stand up paddle board properly when transporting it. Not only can a poorly secured item get you into trouble with the law, it can cause an accident and damage your vehicle, other vehicles and your kayak, canoe, or stand up paddle board. You’ll need to make sure that the weight distribution is even and that the roof rack and straps are securely fastened. We have a range of tie down straps starting from $15.00 as well as reinforced lockable tie downs, for security against theft.
Get out and about and enjoy yourself! If you’re in need of convenient and practical ways to carry your stand-up paddle boards, canoes, kayaks and much more just give our friendly team a call.
