Wave Sport’s new Diesel 60, 70, 80
Meet Wave Sport’s redesigned Diesel, the ultimate 4×4 of kayaks. With its new rocker profile and increased flared sidewalls, this kayak is faster than its predecessor. In addition, its is even more maneuverable, loose and forgiving! With its comfortable, easy-fit outfitting, its new thigh hooks, and three sizes, this boat fits anyone and everyone. This boat is truly the 4×4 of kayaks, running rivers effortlessly and even rivaling the Habitat for its creeking ability. But it’s also great for beginners. So, if you’re looking to give to a boater who wants to run-rivers and wants to step it up on the occasional creek, this is the boat for you.

AT2 Superlight
Undeniably the best paddle I have ever used…period. The AT2 is super light, super strong and has lots of power. It’s great for both playboating and creekboating! When I use this paddle, I feel I can take three strokes to every one stroke any other paddle takes. $459.00

Kokatat Rogue Drytop

The most comfortable, lightweight, waterproof drytop I have ever used. In the ocean, and on the rivers, this top does it all. In fact, it’s so light that when you’re wearing it, it feels like you’re not. Thanks to GORE-TEX XCR fabric, you’ll not only be comfortable, but you’ll stay completely dry. Unlike other drytops, range of motion is completely uninhibited. Get rid of those pesky velcro straps at the neck and wrist too- no more annoying drytop adjustments in the eddy! All these points make for the most comfortable, waterproof drytop on the market! Get your friend one of these and they will absolutely love you for it.

SnapDragon Design’s Armortex Sprayskirt

This skirt is the Ferrari of skirts, with its 3mm neoprene around the waist and 4mm neoprene reinforcing the edges. With this extra reinforcement, this skirt fits tight, and keeps water out. (Key for the winter paddler you know) It even comes with an optional implosion bar to minimize the chances of skirt implosion. Built “Snapdragon” tough, this skirt will outlast virtually any other skirt and keep you warm and dry when you need it.

H2OAudio Waterproof Ipod case and headphones

Ever want to listen to your favorite tunes while you paddle? Well, now you can! With H2OAudio’s wide variety of waterproof Ipod cases, you can take your Ipod with you! Have no fear, the cases and headphones are extremely easy to use and comfortable to wear! Out on the ocean, or on your local creek, get ready to jam out.
