Colorado Kayak Supply (CKS) is an eCommerce paddlesports retailer located in Denver, Colorado.  The original CKS was founded in Nathrop, CO in 1978 by the legendary Jim Stoholquist and the eCommerce brand has transitioned through three different owners and Colorado locations since then.  CKS online was purchased in the summer of 2024 by Jon Kahn, who has owned and operated Confluence Kayak and Ski since 1995.

Over the years, CKS has continued to be a destination for paddlers by paddlers.  We strive to offer the highest quality paddlesports equipment and provide the 5-star customer service we’re known for in our brick-and-mortar downtown Denver location. 

We realize that purchasing whitewater equipment online can be a daunting task. We aim to make the experience as simple and straightforward as possible with coloradokayak being open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you are ever in doubt, just remember that when you get in touch with CKS, you are connecting with a real paddler who knows the gear we carry inside and out. Enjoy our site and see you on the river!
