Why wait for Amazon Prime Day? You can get a great deal on kayak, inflatable paddleboards and accessories at REI right now…


REI.com is still running its 4th of July sale, with big discounts on a huge array of outdoor gear for your summer paddling adventures. This year’s sale features some particularly great offers on paddleboards, kayaks and paddling equipment, so we’ve rounded up our pick of the best offers for you right here.

Most of their offers ended on 4th of July, and some of the most popular deals are already sold out, so don’t hang around. We’ve already seen some kayaks go out of stock, so don’t wait if you see something you want.

If you’d rather check out all the deals, you can also browse the full REI 4th July sale yourself. Some deals are exclusively for members, but membership is only $30 for life, so it could easily pay for itself.

Note: We may earn a commission when you buy through links on our site, at no extra cost to you. This doesn’t affect our editorial independence.

Cannon Nokomis Hybrid Kayak Paddle – now $79.83, was $159.95, save 50%
Many of the best inflatable kayaks require you to buy a separate paddle, so if you’re buying for the first time this 4th of July, you’ll probably need to pick one up separately. There are big savings to be had here too, with this versatile paddle offered for half price. The hybrid design means the Cannon Nokomis is equally well suited for quick afternoon paddles and multi-day touring.

Another hybrid paddle that is half-off for 4th of July, the Accent eNeRGy boasts ergonomic grips and drip rings to stop water running down your cuffs. Available in 220cm shaft length as well as the standard 230cm, this would be a better choice for a shorter kayaker.
