Nelo – Future Kids

Over the years we have met many people and companies in the water sports industry. However, we paid special attention to Nelo. We found their combination of experience, tradition and innovative approach as key value for our company. That’s why we make decision to cooperate in process of kayak production.


Nelo is the leading company in top performance kayaks and canoes and the major innovator in canoeing, from boat design to services and technology.

The company was created in 1978 by Manuel Ramos, a former paddler himself, and is now located in Vila do Conde, Portugal. The factory has an area of 20.000m2 where 150 employees work, a big percent of which does, or has done, kayaking.

With a network of 40 dealers, Nelo covers the globe and sells to over 100 countries.

Nelo was the first manufacturer to have a truly professional service at major events, having a large crew at the venues that prepare, tune, repair any boat that comes by.
