Who we are
Tahe Outdoors - the leading European watersports company is delivering innovation to paddlers across the globe.
Tahe Outdoors (previously known as Tahe Kayaks) is the top manufacturing and distribution company in the field of high quality watersports equipment in Europe. Our mission is to change people’s lives by introducing them to one of the most relaxing ways to spend their free time – kayaking. We are doing that in the most reliable and enjoyable way - through the kayaks, canoes and paddling gear manufactured by us in France and Estonia with attention to every single detail as well as concern for the environment. Company was established in 1989 by competition paddlers. First kayak was built with the help of Finnish colleagues from Finnish Canoe Federation. Tahe Outdoors was restructured in 2007, when two brothers Marek Pohla and Janek Pohla joined the company. Today, Tahe Outdoors operates with 5 brands of watersport equipment and has 3 factories with 130 employees. Quality is reflected in every single detail of our products and we do not make any compromises there.
