Company Profile Request update info.

The Innova Group, seller of Innova Inflatable Kayaks and Canoes, is located between Seattle and Vancouver, BC, near the world famous paddling of the San Juan Islands and the Salish Sea. Innova Kayaks is owned by partners Tim Rosenhan and Paul Neutz. Tim Rosenhan runs the day-to-day operations. When you call, there’s a good chance you’ll get Tim on the phone (except during the busy season). Tim Rosenhan of Innova Kayaks Why did we do it? In the early 90’s Innova Kayaks, then known as Innova Recreational Equipment, introduced high-end inflatable touring kayaks to the North American market. Before Innova inflatable kayaks came onto the North American paddling scene, the only inflatable kayaks available were vinyl pool toys or whitewater specific “Duckies” for river outfitters. As the walls of Eastern Europe tumbled down, Paul visited his hometown, Prague, and couldn’t help but notice people in inflatable kayaks paddling the Vltava river which runs through the city. The quality of these boats were unmistakable. They were made of the same durable type of material as Zodiacs and whitewater rafts. And the inflatable boats were bright orange, a legacy of darker times when the communist government demanded that the inflatable kayaks were made out of bright materials so that people trying to escape could easily be picked out as they floated down the river. To Paul and Tim, who share a love of kayaking, it seemed that inflatable boats were the perfect marriage of performance and portability…and they would be loved by North American paddlers. The Czech factory, which Paul and Tim later partnered with, had a long history of inflatable kayak construction — they had been building inflatable boats for the world since 1950.
