2012 Paddling Season - Coming Soon!
Some very cool new Tandems from Stellar, the S2S Tandem, out last year and here in the shop is ultra sleek and low volume, much better suited for our water than the super big volume boats from SA. (Unless, of course, you're going out in conditions featured above.) And new for 2012 a Stellar racing/speed touring tandem kayak the ST21, scheduled to be here in June.
Looking forward to experiencing some thrilling rides and establishing some local benchmarks, maybe even a You tube video to share.
Along with these tandems are the wave of new stable surfers from Think, the Eze, and Stellar the S18S. These are skis that will allow a beginner a much more accessible entry into the sport of sufski paddling, specifically the surf aspect.
More boards than ever, wet suits, paddles and racks. Come chase the wave on Superior's North Shore.
Get out & get wet, John

So, check this out. "VIDEO".
Thanks Barry Lewin for making a very cool and eye watering surfski video, fun to watch and wonder.
That's 42 plus MPH in a kayak! I've had the opportunity to race with, more like behind, Barry a number of times, and this is he and his father chasing fast moving swell off Durban's Indian Ocean coast. While these exact and clearly ideal conditions aren't likely to be found on Superior we have some awesome blows with potential for boat speeds speeds in the 20's for sure in singles and and possibly...who knows in doubles?
I have finally invested in some GoPro cameras and will get the GPS hooked up. Think its time to feature a little freshwater stoke.
