How To Secure A Kayak

  1. Email or complete the enquiry form letting Nick at Vortex know the exact kayak model (& colour) you are interested in.
  2. You will receive an email confirming receipt of your email. If you are a Gmail user, my email will be in your SPAM folder!
  3. Keep an eye on the website homepage for any changes/updates to the stock arrival dates. Please don't email for updates. They will be on the website.
  4. Once I have notification that stock arrival is imminent, I'll email you requesting you make a purchase to secure your order. If you want your kayak you will need to be prompt doing this.
  5. Stock availability & shipping dates very fluid at the momment. I will do my best to secure stock for your order - but I can't guarantee any stock or any shipping dates until I have kayaks & accessories here in the UK.
  6. When stock arrives I will have a lot of kayaks to ship out - so please be patient.
