Paddle Shop Info

Yeager’s Sporting Goods aims to provide its customers with access to some of the best paddle sports accessories available. We have chosen to partner with many Northwest-based companies that maintain the highest standards of production quality.

Featured Products


In 1971 Kokatat began making paddle sports apparel and gear in Arcata, CA. Our founder and president, Steve O’Meara, recognized from the start that keeping production local was necessary in order to control quality and continually develop the finest and driest paddling apparel in the world. Today, over 90% of our annual revenue comes from the sales of products handmade in our Arcata factory (now 150 employees strong) and by our local and regional manufacturing partners. Yes, we do source items in Asia. But, only for products that do not have scalable infrastructure here in the US and to support our environmental commitment to Gaia® PVC free flotation foam for all our life vests, available exclusively through our Asian manufacturer.

All Kokatat products are manufactured to our exacting quality standards, developed by paddlers for paddlers over more than 40 years. All our products are backed by a lifetime guarantee against defects in manufacturing or materials* and our repair service facility inside our Arcata factory is unsurpassed in our industry for customer satisfaction.

Meet Corey Salas

A Bellingham local, Corey exudes passion for the Pacific Northwest. Having studied at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa, keeping life fun comes easily to our ski/paddle shop manager. In his free time, he enjoys spending time on Mount Baker, Galbraith and the Puget Sound atop boards, skis, bikes and kayaks. On the snowier side of things, he has studied the finer points of custom ski/snowboard boot-fitting/modification work and has competed in two regional contests, placing first in both. Corey’s primary goal at Yeager’s is to engage with more of the public in an effort to show them the wonder and awe of the recreational opportunities in the PNW. If ever you’d like to reach out in hopes of organizing an event with our shop, or simply have a general inquiry, please reach out to Corey in-person, by phone at (360) 733-1080.
