There's a new addition to Westport's Saugatuck area that'll have you itching to explore the Saugatuck River by kayak or by paddleboard. The Rowayton-based Downunder Kayaks, SUPs and Surf Shop has officially opened its doors in the recently completed Saugatuck Center on Riverside Avenue.
Like its sister shop in Rowayton, the Westport store offers kayak and paddleboard rentals, sales, demonstrations, classes, guided river outings, race events, sunset paddling, paddle storage, and children and teen programs as well as parties for kids and adults.
Unlike the Rowayton shop, the Westport location is open year-round and will offer extended stand-up paddleboard rentals. The shop, located at 575 Riverside Ave., is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Wednesday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekends and holidays.
Do you go kayaking or paddleboarding? Have you visited the new shop yet?
