About Hydra Sports

Hydra Sports Limited was launched by Steve and Ruth Hesford in 2003.

We wanted to find the best quality canoeing kit from around the world to use ourselves and once we realised how much better it was, we wanted to share that with everyone!

Starting with Vajda, we built up relationships with suppliers of the best kit from across the world to sell within the UK and Ireland.

We focus on slalom although we do sell kit for polo, sprint and wildwater racing too.

We’re passionate about our sport and want other people to love it just as much. We set up a pop up shop at races and also have a business unit in Stafford which is open Monday-Friday.

We also offer advice, after sales support and a boat repair service.
