About Us

A work of art, made for life.

Current Designs Kayak has followed that simple philosophy since its founding in British Columbia in the late 1970s. Those earliest kayaks by Brian Henry were made for experiencing the wonder and beauty of the big waters of the west coast, cruising for days and camping out on remote shorelines. Through its history, changes of location and ownership, finally sharing its current home with Sanborn and Merrimack in Winona, Minnesota, Current Designs has expanded its offerings to cover more ground in terms of play, touring, and recreational joy out on the water but the philosophy remains the same. Your Current Designs kayak is made to be a work of art- beautiful, inspiring- and made for life- safety and reliability, relaxation and connection, and joy.
