The Joker

Choose your passion and get your kayak

If you like to charge through pushy waves and across boiling eddy lines at the speed of a barracuda the Joker is for you. Turning on a dime when loading the stern is a breeze and pirouetting along eddy lines might become your new normal.

The Bliss

Choose your passion and get your kayak

The Bliss will take the fun on your favourite play run to a new level. At a length of 245cm and it’s planning hull it’s perfectly suited for playful whitewater and spicing up your runs with freestyle moves along the way.

Black Jack

Choose your passion and get your kayak

The Black Jack is a modern white water kayak that perfectly bridges the gap between a river runner and a creek boat. High volume and high rocker give it the dry line ability and buoyancy that a full on creek boat needs.

Royal Flush

Choose your passion and get your kayak

The Royal Flush is an ultra-dynamic kayak, that excels in deep waters, but doesn’t mind a low water creek run either. If you like to pull the stick and swing the hips, the Royal Flush is your weapon.

Queen of Hearts

Choose your passion and get your kayak

With a width of 62cm, a length of 250cm and a volume of approx. 245 liters, the Queen Of Hearts brings light paddlers and youngsters between 35 and 65kg the fun we love about Black Jack and Royal Flush.

Ace of Spades

Choose your passion and get your kayak

You immediately feel at home in the Ace of Spades! The boat is dependable, precise and intuitive to paddle, it has reserves and manners which we need in order to feel safe in difficult whitewater.

We are deeply passionate about whitewater kayaking. It’s not just a sport. It’s the people we meet, the adventures we get into along the way and the places we get to see. As a company we strive to protect these places the best we can and are aware of the challenges our business faces as a result. We feel the best way to remind us what’s at stake, is to go to these places and fall in love with them.

What the Team says

Spade Team reviews.

I really like the royal flush, especially on creek rivers and waterfalls. It is stable, fast and even easy to paddle at! Its edges are incredible and sick to boof any drop and its outfit is very cool and comfortable! I love it! [···]

Francisco Pandolfi Jimenez

The Royal Flush
The Black Jack is my definite favorite. It is super playful and even when packed with gear for a multiday, it is easy to control without losing the fun factor, no compromise. I love carving into eddies and skipping from drops with this boat [···]

Vera Knook

The Black Jack
I love to paddle the Royal Flush because it is by far the fastest and best maneuverable boat for my weight and size (185cm and 87kg) I am proud to paddle Spade since the beginning and to use it not only for difficult Whitewater but for many [···]

Marcel Bloder

The Royal Flush
Absolutely in love with my BlackJack and super stoked to be the youngest team rider! The BJ is super easy to boof and easy to handle when it comes to bigger rapids. Its fast and super playful while paddling through a level 3 boulder garden. [···]

a paddler owned company

Spade Kayaks was founded »by paddlers, for paddlers«.

Good to know.

We are a young company. But we ain’t no greenhorns. Spade Kayaks has a backup of a few generations of paddlers, with an overall paddling experience of more than 125 years.

We are paddlers.

We have spent most of our life time traveling around the globe, searching for the perfect river. Paddling is a state of mind and a way of living and therefore plain essential for all of us.

The perfect boat.

But how perfect can the perfect river be without the perfect boat? We always wanted to build our own kayak, according to our ideas and conceptions.


Mission accomplished?

Not yet! We for sure keep on working hard to get as close as possible, as soon as possible to our objective target. Word.
