About Us

West Coast Kayaks & Paddleboards, founded in 2009 in the garage of St. Pete natives Jerry and Katie Allen, is a Christian and family owned business located at 3350 Tyrone Blvd. N in St. Petersburg, FL.

Splash I & Splash II Kayaks, manufactured by Crescent Kayaks, inspired the initial start of the business seven years ago. To date, West Coast Kayaks is the largest dealer for Crescent Kayaks in the nation! We are also the #1 dealer for Nucanoe in the world! Never head of Nucanoe? Their boats merge the stability of a canoe with the versatility of a kayak, creating one of the most popular fishing vessels for both salt and freshwater anglers. For the more recreational kayaker, we carry Ocean Kayak, Old Town, Delta, and Kaku - all trusted brands in the business that meet the needs of our leisurely customers. 

Wanting to try something different? West Coast Kayaks carries a wide range of paddleboards created for all levels of experience. From beginner to racer, our Pro Staff will help you find a board that best suits your lifestyle, including touring, all-around, racing, and inflatable SUPs. We are the exclusive dealer of Riviera Paddlesurf, Pau Hana, Tahoe, and KM Hawaii in St. Petersburg, FL. 

We enjoy sharing our love of the water by bringing affordable family fun into the world of kayaking and stand up paddle boarding. We hope to get an opportunity to earn your business.
