Review the photos and videos below to see examples of adaptations individuals and programs have made for paddlers of all abilities. You can find more in-depth stories on our blog. If you have photos, videos or tips you'd like to share, please contact us at info@angleoar.com.



If you're a paddler with a significant disability and would like to talk with a trained professional about whether adaptive kayaking might be a good fit for you, what equipment you might need, and how to get started, you can now book a consultation with us. We have a number of certified adaptive paddling instructors available, some with extensive primary training as physical therapists, who have a solid understanding of both human physiology and adaptive kayaking.

Please Note: If you have a standard product question about whether our products might work for you or a loved one, or are making an initial inquiry, please reach out any time. There is absolutely no cost, and we are happy to help answer any questions. These consultations are generally for paddlers with unique or complex disabilities who may need more sophisticated adaptations.


Request a consultation by clicking the Book Now button.

Decide what you can afford to pay and go through checkout. Your contribution is used to cover the cost of our colleagues' time. 

One of our adaptive instructors will reach out to you via phone or video to learn about your interests, needs and unique requirements. He or she may ask for some video footage for further analysis or for you to demonstrate your mobility. The consultation will culiminate in a recommendation of adaptive products, if applicable. You are under no obligation to make any purchase. 


If you end up purchasing a Versa Paddle, Gamut Paddle Holder and/or Outriggers from us here at Angle Oar, we'll discount your purchase by your contribution amount, up to $50.
