Double Dutch started in 1980 making composite kayaks. In 1981 they were the first to use carbon fibre, epoxy resin, foam core sandwich and vacuum technology to revolutionise the race kayak and paddle market.
Between 1980 and early 2000s, most Olympic and World Championship Slaloms were won using DD kayaks and paddles. This included 5 consecutive World Championships by the legendary Richard Fox.
Double Dutch now focus solely on producing strong, light and durable paddles for polo, whitewater, slalom, sea kayak and dragon boating.
