what we believe in

Nelo USA was founded with one simple vision in mind; to grow and support niche water sports in the United States with high quality products and expert guidance.  

At Nelo USA, we believe in the transformative, positive, community building power of sport.  We believe in the ideals and philosophy of Olympism – in “blending sport with culture and education, Olympism seeks to create a way of life based on the joy found in effort, the educational value of good example and respect for universal fundamental ethical principles in the spirit of friendship and fair play”.  

Nelo is the world leader in high performance kayaks and canoes whose core competencies include innovation-based R&D, manufacturing and athlete centric services.  

Nelo was created in 1978 by Manuel Ramos, and is located in Vila do Conde, Portugal.  The company was founded by paddlers and continues to this day to be run by athletes and enthusiasts.  

Nelo is proudly Portuguese; extending this nation’s centuries-long expertise in boat building. From the Caravel sailing ships that dominated long voyages in the 15th – 17th century to current day Olympic Champions, the Portuguese have been designing innovative world class boats for centuries.  The Nina and Pinta which were sailed by Christopher Columbus, were caravel ships!
