Agris and Daina. Here we are! Just switched from IT business into travel and adventure by forming a new family owned business, based on our past experience.

Canoe rentals

For the time being the canoe rental service was facing almost an empty niche and we were set to cover the most attractive rivers and regions by chain of rental outlets, incorporating the best industry practices. On-line reservations was a clear innovation at this time.

Adventure racing

Adventure racing

We cut our way to recognition via series of adventure racing events hold annually since 2001 till 2009. Most prominent, perhaps, was a 3-day midsummer canoe event called “Ultramarathon”. Afterall, that was great fun to everyone!

It started as a wintertime employment project

It started as a wintertime employment project

There was a time when the engineering background of mine called for better, ok – not better – different employment during those long winter months. And so the boat design and manufacturing workshop has been created. And soon our favorite canoe designs hit our rental fleet and store. Since that time we have 2 diversified business lines which, at the first sight, have little common in general and running their own paths, however we are pretty confident about the statement that “to be able to make a good boats you have to live with the boats, know where the fun part is, where the drawbacks come form and where technology has to play its role”. We try to master this technology!

Design and prototyping workshop

Design and prototyping workshop

We make the form to macth the idea! Freelance services – 3D CAD design and engineering, 3D CAM and CNC milling. Natural scale master models, prototypes, molds for composite production. And not only boats – also automotive or any other 3D objects which needs a computer controlled accuracy. Sounds positive? Get in touch!
