Here at Cool Blue Canoes we choose our brands very carefully in order to provide world class products at a reasonable cost to our customers. “Galasport’ is our flagship brand in terms of Canoes / Kayaks as well as paddles. It is important to recognise the history and work of the brand that has gone in, to make it the company it is today.

In 1990 Vladislav Galuška created the “Gala Sport Suŝice” company and then in 2000 the company Galasport was established.
Galasport is Czech owned, has Czech employees and all the products are produced within the Czech Republic.

Galasport strives to produce the best paddling products possible by using only the best materials available, combined with a well-known and highly skilled workforce/design team. Due to this it wasn’t long until they were recognised as the best manufacturer of paddles and boats by many of the top paddlers around the world from several nations.
