Welcome to Nookie, a passionate company located in Cornwall, South-West England. Situated amidst stunning lakes, rivers with Class V rapids, estuaries, and beautiful beaches offering some of Europe’s finest surf in Devon and Cornwall, our design studio and factory thrive in the perfect setting. We’re blessed to have the opportunity to test our products in their natural environment, alongside our dedicated team who put our gear to the test all around the world. Our outdoor centre-specific products, known as NKE Centre Gear, undergo rigorous real-life testing during development, partnering with busy outdoor activity centres such as our local Mount Batten Watersports Activity Centre.
Our journey began in 1991 with a deep passion for whitewater kayaking and a vision to create dry, safe, and functional gear that also exuded style on the water. Though that passion still burns within us, we pass our 30th year and our horizons have expanded. While we remain devoted to whitewater kayaking, we’ve developed a keen interest in all water activities, be it canoeing, sea kayaking, or stand-up paddle boarding.
Specialising in the design and production of waterproof drywear (including drysuits, kayaking dry trousers & jackets) buoyancy aids, thermal clothing, spraydecks, and accessories, our entire team possesses a wealth of expertise and decades of experience. This collective knowledge forms the foundation of our unwavering understanding of our products. When you reach out to us with a question, you can rest assured that you’ll receive an informed response and genuine assistance. We greatly value feedback from our customers, retailers, and product testers, as we believe in customer-led design and development across our entire product range. After all, it’s you who wear and use our gear.
We hold steadfast to our commitment to British manufacturing, proudly producing our premium drysuits, dry trousers, spraydecks, rescue throwlines and other products right here in the UK. We continually strive to increase the number of products manufactured in our Cornwall factory or elsewhere in the country. Whenever possible, we choose British suppliers. However, in certain instances, we recognise that certain technologies and expertise required for our highly technical specialist equipment are more advanced overseas. In such cases, we meticulously select the best producers from around the world. Rest assured, all our products are designed in Cornwall to ensure optimal functionality, fit and quality throughout our range.
See you on the water!
