Jozsef Weimper, founder of KayakFirst is an active kayaker even today. Like most of the paddlers, he also missed a proper sports-specific substitute for training in cold weather. Paddlers can not do their specific training whole year long, as athletes of any other sports disciplines can. Jozsef recognized the enormous need for a proper machine.

He trained on all the ergometers available on the market when he was a manager at the Hungarian Canoe Federation – and learned all the disadvantages of those machines: big size, unrealistic water-catch, high price, outdated displays.

Since he was a manager and handyman at the same time, with years of development, dedication, nights spent in the workshop the results came together. Now, backed by powerful investors and a professional team and lots of good customer feedbacks, at KayakFirst his aim is the sky.

We at KayakFirst invite you to join the community of happy people of all arts of paddling!
