About Us

Kayak Trader was founded by life time kayakers Morgan and Emily House and Joe and Karen Vinson. The whole family shares a passion for paddling and expanding the footprint of paddling across the world. Their hopes are that Kayak Trader will connect paddlers from all disciplines and from all parts of the world.

Morgan and Emily are both from Gainesville, GA and Joe and Karen live nearby in Flowery Branch GA. ¬†They all enjoy paddling, being outside, and playing with the new addition to the family “Liam”. Joe ( aka Papa Joe is Morgan’s father in law but they are more like good friends than anything and Karen ( aka Mimi K ) prefers spoiling Liam more than Morgan and Joe likes making beer!

If you have any questions about the site, kayaking, or brewing beer, just shoot us an email!


Keep on paddling and remember – there is no finish line!
