If you have been on something that floats in the James River, chances are you got it from Appomattox River Company. These folks have been doing it a long time, and they know their… stuff. Established in 1977, Appomattox River Company is a family owned paddlesports retailer with one of the largest selections of paddlecraft and accessories in the country.
The folks at Appomattox tell us “The resources Richmond has to offer, for grin inducing outdoor fun, are incredibly unique for a major city. RVA has been blessed with an amazing playground in and around the James River. It’s our job as good stewards to relish it, protect it, and share it with as many people as possible. Appomattox River Company has long celebrated that mission, and King of the James is the kind of grassroots event we love to support.” The king could not agree more.
For 40 years Appomattox River Company has grown along with the Paddlesports
Industry. Their warehouse in Farmville, Virginia has more boats and boards than you can shake a stick at. Filled with 2500+ kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards, it’s enough to make any water logged bottom feeder week in the knees. Cant make it all the way out to Farmville? Stop into the Ashland and Hampton stores to see a selection of their impressive inventory. On top of their support of the King of the James event, Appomattox River Company has long supported other non-profits like James River Association, Heroes on the Water, and many local charity tournaments, races, and events.
