Elite Paddle Gear was established in 2013 after owner, Jamie McCrudden rediscovered a past passion for paddling & competition. This time the freedom & challenge of paddling ocean skis was more enticing than clearing gates on a white water slalom course. The spectacular coastline & water ways for which Wollongong is renowned, is now the training ground.

With only a couple of manufacturers represented locally, Jamie decided that it was time that paddlers were able to gain access to other well known brands and equipment.

Elite Paddle Gear is based in Wollongong which is convenient for paddlers in the Illawarra or South Coast to take the opportunity to demo our skis or paddles. Our online presence ensures Elite Paddle Gear is ideally positioned to work towards our goal of providing top quality equipment and service, while also growing the sport of paddling

We share your passion and are addicted to the sport & lifestyle advantages that paddling can bring. Whether you are drawn to the call of a howling downwind run; the challenge or social interaction of squad training; or you just want to get out and explore our pristine water ways, Elite Paddle Gear will ensure that you are best equipped to handle any of these options.
