Down North Adventures

Fun is in our genes

Down North Adventures LLC derives its name from two simple facts
Water flows Down and the rivers in Oregon mostly run North

Business For Sale

Down North Adventures LLC is a small manufacturer of its own unique line of equipment for whitewater boating and outdoor use with a current retail inventory worth $27,000. We are looking to sell it all off for $12,000.

We have found we are very good at developing products but terrible at marketing. If you’re good at selling, this may be for you.

All inventory, web site, high-resolution photos, gear patterns, suppliers information, packaging materials, stickers, T-shirts and a vinyl banner are all included. The hard work is done. This is a turnkey business that can easily be run from your home.

Most equipment is produced by second party companies to our specifications. The three items that are now sewn in-house could easily be produced by the same companies. No manufacturing experience is required. All prototyping is complete and all supply chains are in place. Web site developed but not currently on-line, not this site.

Please contact Brian at for further information.

Whitewater Leash
Paddle security system

At last, a safe way to keep your kayak, canoe, or raft paddle with you during
that inevitable swim, even while wearing gloves or using pogies. A one-inch strap
with a fast release cam buckle attaches to the shaft of your paddle, while your
wrist slips through a stretchy loop of bungee cord. This two-way safety
system allows for quick escape if you need it, but holds firm when you want it.
Has proven itself in the 2008 Surf Kayak Championships

Pocket Cabana

Gone are the days of running into the bushes, hiding behind your
car door, or wrapping a towel around your waist. Just slide the
Pocket Cabana over your head or hang it from its two carabiner

Pocket Cabana allows you to change just about anywhere, with privacy.
