Sorry for the delay with the FFF, but we're working on updating our website and it's keeping us busy. If you've visited our site recently you've probably noticed some small changes. It's been in development for a couple months now and the site went live 2 weeks ago. We have a lot of work to do. We'll have a web unveil next month after we work out the bugs and figure out all the bells and whistles. Things will continue to evolve, as we tinker and learn all the capabilities of this new web home, and the appearance may change a bit, but we'll still have the same easy to navigate site. Heck if you've noticed, it looks pretty familiar. One of the big differences is our mobile site. Check that out! So, yea, we've changed some things and in the future we'll be adding a little pop, a little sizzle, but we'll still be the same grassroots, family orientated business we've been since '77. In the meantime, if ya notice something funky, give us a heads up. Thanks!
In other news, stay tuned for a lot bigger changes as we roll into winter! We've been extremely blessed to have a great customer base that is like family to us and we are looking to improve upon our already proven track record of service. What does that mean? Oh, man it's going to be good, but we have to hold tight for a little bit while all the details are ironed out.
Here is what caught my attention this past week, from the web world.
Martina Wegman, a Dagger Kayak athlete, posted this video of her trip down the Grand Canyon. There is even a shot of her standing in the Dagger Green Boat! Who else could use a 20+ day trip down the Grand with no electronics?
Jay Brooks, of Wilderness Systems and Adventure Technology, took a run down deep south for the Extreme Kayak Fishing Tournament. Jay has been getting after it and traveling far and wide to catch big fish. Below the photo is his report of an exciting time with the "Maryland Boys."

Jonathon Leavitt, of FeelFree Kayaks and Cannon Paddles, has been doing a lot of snakehead fishing lately. I've been hearing more and more about how fun these things are to catch. Take a look and decide for yourself. Featured in this video is a Wilderness Systems Ride 135.
The all new Jackson Kayak Fun is on it's way! Check out this sweet video about Jackson's updated whitewater kayak. It's Fun, redone.
Richie Bekolay, of Ocean Kayak / Werner Paddles, made the move from Virginia to Florida and spent little time getting acclimated to the Gulf Coast.

Kayak Kevin and Lee Williams, of Ocean Kayak/ Old Town, had Jay Brooks, of Wilderness Systems, on the podcast recently to talk about the Extreme Kayak Fishing Tournament. These guys are always fun and informative. Check out the best video podcast out there at Kayak Kevin Podcast.
