The Vibe Kayaks Story

{Just regular people doing what we love.}

Vibe Kayaks About Us

Since 2013, Vibe has focused on one thing—giving paddlers of any skill level the opportunity to experience the freedom that comes with diving into what nature has to offer. The brand is built on a passion for the water, fishing, and outdoor living and our products are the perfect combination of good looks, great features, and affordability.

At the end of the day, we strive to be more than just an outdoor company—we are committed to coming alongside and serving those who just can’t get enough of “out there.”

What's a hobby? This is life.


High Fives Given

We think awesomeness should be celebrated, and what better way than a high five! We would give hugs, but we respect your personal space.


Vibing Customers

Our Vibe Tribe just keeps growing. We're here to share our love of nature and we're psyched that so many people are getting "out there."



In the wise words of Bob Marley, we "don't worry about a thing. Cause every little thing is gonna' be alright." Enjoy life and spread good vibes.


Vibe Kayaks Founder Josh Thomas

Joshua Thomas

CEO / Kayak Addict

Father, husband, fisherman and kayak addict, Josh can be found paddling any type of water if there is fish to be caught. Born in Texas, he grew up in Germany, Florida and Virginia and has had Georgia on his mind since 1996. Often found barefoot, this summertime junkie wears a jacket when it’s below 80 degrees, and will easily run the furnace before 7am during a Georgia summer heatwave. Josh is an analytical thinker, natural born problem solver and looks at life like a puzzle. In his world, problems are just answers waiting to be found.
