Happy Mother’s Day

What is the best way to celebrate mother’s day?  Why, breakfast cooked by your family, then paddling a pair of brand new kayaks!

Our new Epic 18x Sport kayaks arrived on Friday, and we launched out of Edmonds on Mother’s Day for their salt water initiation.

We were very pleased with how they handle – heavier than a surfski of course, but very nimble for a sea kayak.  The deck is cut away for good paddle placement at the catch, the footboard setup is super easy to adjust, the hatch design is pure genius, and the hull speed is fantastic for a sea kayak.  They even surf reasonably well on some boat wakes that came our way.  This is all unladen of course; next month we will load them up with gear and go paddling around the San Juans.
