Well we built out the first production Liquidlogic Stinger out of the aluminum mold and I just had to go get a run in. Its been 5 years in the making. It felt great to be in a production boat. Stiffer, better outfitting, silky smooth shell, bomber security bars, etc.. it just felt fantastic and paddled great. Here is to many more runs in the future.
Its been a bit since I put my butt in a playboat sunny skies and upper 50s temps had Yonton Mehler and I jumping into a car with Kerry Porche headed for Eternity hole on the Tuckasegee River. Yonton started jumping back in a playboat a couple months ago and is starting to show signs of his skills that took him to the World Championships.
As part of making Legacy Paddlesports the sweetest place to work on the planet, we plan to enrich our offices and factory inside and out with Art that evokes our love of Water, Rivers, Kayaking and of course, Liquidlogic Kayaks and Native Watercraft. We want to surround ourselves with the work of others who draw on the paddling environment as a key source of inspiration. We hope to create a workspace that will keep us fired up to imagine, design, and build the world’s greatest boats. Hence: this Art Proposal.
I have been lucky enough to paddle with my brother since we were young, and I consider myself very fortunate to have started as early as I did. My brother now has a posse of rugrats that he started paddling with far younger than we were in our beginning. It has been an indescribable pleasure to create a kayak that makes paddling fun, and safe, for his kids. He wrote this article recently about his experiences paddling with children, including his own, and using the Remix 47 to help them love kayaking.
