In the late 1980s, far from the coconut palm beaches of Hawaii, Tahe Outdoors built its own legend conquering the cold, inhospitable seas of northern Europe. A group of hard-core sportsmen created a range of high-performance, super-tough kayaks so they could attempt extreme expeditions into the harsh, frozen landscapes of the great white north. “TAHE” means ”the will to succeed” in Estonian. An appropriate core value for the creators of this Estonian company, supported in its early days by the Finnish Kayak Federation. Two brands were created from this business (ad)venture : Zegul and Tahe Marine. Their products have been the platform for legendary expeditions to some of the most remote locations on the planet.
