Long term readers of Solent Sea Kayaking may well remember Kari-Tek being mentioned in the article I wrote about their fantastic Hydro-Skeg system (now sadly not available) which I had retro-fitted to my P&H Cetus.
In fact, Kari-Tek are actually a fully fledged Sea Kayaking shop with a Showroom based in Trabboch near Mauchline in Ayrshire. They also offer a full mail order service. As well as their wire and rope skeg systems, kayak/canoe trailers and specialised roof loading systems, Kari-Tek stock a range of sea kayaks from P&H, Rockpool, SKUK and Kirton along with a broad range of open canoes, paddles, clothing and equipment. They are also the UK Distributer of the increasingly popular Flat Earth Kayak Sails.
I have used the mail order service on a couple of occasions now and can thoroughly recommend it. In the last week or so I ordered a couple of items for my safety kit. One item was in stock, the other out of stock.
Ann from Kari-Tek was quick off the mark with both phone calls and emails to explain the situation and kept me up to date as she sourced the out of stock item. The two bits of kit were dispatched separately and both arrived within 24 hours of being posted. Fantastic and friendly service throughout leaving me with a genuine feeling that Kari-Tek value their customers.
