Established Kayak Retailer Expands to Texas

Introducing Waterways Austin, Texas’ newest kayak shop dedicated to providing knowledgeable service and quality paddlesports products to the local community.

Austin TX, May 25th, 2022 – Waterways, a paddlesports shop which originated in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina, has made its way to the “Lone Star State” with the opening of a showroom in Austin, Texas.

The 2,700 square foot retail shop features kayaks and accessories designed for fishing and recreational use by Feelfree Kayaks, Seastream Kayaks, 3 Waters Kayaks and Jonny Boats. In addition to paddlesports gear, the retail shop offers general outdoor recreational equipment such as waterproof dry bags, coolers and outdoor apparel. The showroom will also be used as a local hub for hosting seminars, guest speakers and special events focusing on regional recreational and fishing communities. Kayak rentals will be offered soon as well.

This specific location was chosen to complement area residents’ passion for the great outdoors and fitness along with its proximity to various lakes and rivers.

“Central Texas is home to some of the most pristine and beautiful lakes and rivers in the nation, and for me to be able to paddle and fish them has been a blessing,” said Matt Rosas, Store Manager and Texas native. “I look forward to sharing my product knowledge and what I have learned along the way with this community to make sure they have the best outdoor experience possible.”

Additionally, the location was strategically selected to support the brands and fellow Texas dealers. The store will double as a regional distribution center in partnership with Feelfree US, LLC for statewide dealers of Feelfree Kayaks3 Waters KayaksSeastream Kayaks and Jonny Boats. With shipping fees at an all-time high, this distribution strategy is designed to mitigate costs and reduce the amount of time it takes dealers to obtain products. 

The Texas store is now open for business with a grand opening celebration slated for June 4th, 2022.
