Since 1987, Desperate Measures has been trading from our showroom in the Lady Bay area of West Bridgford, Nottingham.

In March 2014, saw us move premises to where we are now at Holme Pierrepont (HPP) some 300m from Nottingham’s White Water Course.

We have built a reputation for supplying high quality kayaking, canoeing and safety equipment, along with honest advice, to individuals, organisations and businesses throughout the UK, Europe and the rest of the World

We have designed this website to be used as an extension of our Nottingham showroom. We hope that you will find everything that you need here, but if you do need anymore information, please contact us by e-mail or by phone (0115 981 68 15).

As in our showroom, our staff will be happy to help. They are passionate about paddle sports and have a wealth of experience and know-how in all disciplines, as well as a depth of knowledge in other water sports and adventurous activities.

However you get on with the site, we’d love to hear from you. If you’ve got any feedback at all, just e-mail us and we’ll see what we can do.
