We have been busy here at WCK stocking up on the latest and greatest gear for your next paddling adventure. We have got lots of hot new products in just about every category. Here is a crash course in some of the new items, more to come later.
As far as boats go, we have a few new ones. The Ride 13.5 and Ride 11.5 are Wilderness Systems new for 2012 'standing friendly' fishing kayaks. This fishing kayak is crazy stable, easily tricked out for fishing and as always has Wilderness System's awesome seating systems for all day fishing comfort. This kayak is also equipped with slide-trax outfitting, if you fish and you don't know what Slide-trax is you need to spend some quality time on Wilderness Systems Fishing Page.
We also got some new whitewater boats from Jackson. The Zen, in 3 sizes, with all the the fixings! If you somehow missed the last several months of blogasphere hype about this boat then check out Jackson's web site. This is a full bodied river runner capable of getting you down all but the gnarliest whitewater, but unlike you clumsy creek boat this will be a lot of fun to paddle!
We also have some brand new Camouflage Adventure Technology Fish Sticks Paddles in 220cm and 230cm lengths. These paddles are light weight and have the ergonomic AT bent shaft. The fish will never see you coming!!! Priced at $355 this also one of the lightest paddles on the market in that price range.
