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.
Even though this years Teva Mountain Games didn’t go the way I had planned, I was still very excited to be in Vail again for one more year of pure excitement!
This year both of my parents came out to watch and cheer me on. I did heaps of runs on Homestake prior to the race on Thursday and I was feeling really good. The water was really low this year so there were loads of rocks everywhere to get stuck on…. or pinned.
