Plenty going on here these days (as usual). Registration just opened up a few days ago for the Yukon River Quest. "The Race to the Midnight Sun" and early reports say that about 15 boats are already entered in this the longest annual kayak & canoe race in the world, stretching 740 kilometers from Whitehorse to Dawson City in Canada's Yukon Territory. Right now I'm debating on which class to enter, solo canoe or solo kayak...decisions, decisions. Good thing is, there is no wrong choice in this one!
Coming up in the next few days will be an announcement of a sale on many of our in stock sea kayaks and numerous accessories. Time to make some space and get ready for the 2011 shipments of sea kayaks and related gear. Also coming out soon should be the first prototypes for my carbon fiber Norsaqs and T-Sticks. The first carbon fiber Greenland Paddles should be coming out soon as well, hopefully before Christmas but we can not guarantee that just yet.
On November 27th and 28th, we are happy to be bringing in Helen Wilson once again for a series of Rolling Clinics and Slideshows. Click HERE for more information.
One of the new lines of sea kayaks we are bringing in for 2011 is Atlantis Kayaks , hand built on Vancouver Island in British Columbia Canada. Shown below is the Spartan which I'm quite excited about!
In other Paddle News, we are now shipping paddles to a new distributer in Iceland and will be supplying a brand new paddling shop in California as well. Details coming soon. Our paddles are also available in British Columbia Canada, in the U.K., throughout Scandinavia and direct by contacting me using the "Contact Us" button on the right side of our website.

More news coming soon including details on our newest sponsored paddler!
