Another year of Outdoor Retailer (OR) has come and gone. For those of you who don’t know what OR is, it is the largest outdoor industry trade show in the whole world! It is held in our backyard in downtown Salt Lake City. This year, we also had the industry Demo Day in our backyard as well because it was moved from Jordenelle Reservoir to Pineview Reservoir in Ogden Valley! We spent all day on the beautiful banks of Pineview paddling and talking to folks from all over the world. We were super busy and had tons of people stop by to give our boats a test run! What a day!
After Demo Day, the indoor show begins. We spend months preparing and designing both our booth and new kayaks to unveil at the show. This year we went all out, even more than we have in the past. We showcased all of the kayaks in our lineup at the Outdoor Retailer show this year and had such a great reaction! Our booth was bright, exciting and extremely colorful with all of our different kayaks laid out neatly around the booth. Here are a few pictures so you can see our design. Our theme this year was a beautiful mountain vacation scene, complete with our own dock and cabin! Look closely at the photos, you might see a new kayak! We unveiled quite a few new boats and features this year, but they won’t be available until 2014. Don’t worry, we’ll have information available soon!
