This past weekend Arizona kayak enthusiast and W Kayak distributor, Avery Sellards ventured into the water for the first time with his new W Fishing Kayak. However, he didn’t go alone. His wife, teenage son, daughter, and young grandson all came along to join in on the fun. Avery’s son had no problem mastering the new boat, within just a few minutes he was “standing up looking like a pro.” All of the younger Sellards were enthralled by the W Kayak, asking “where are we going next weekend?” Suffice to say, both young and old had a great time, and the pictures from the excursion speak for themselves.
On a windy day in San Diego, CA, Jane, her daughter Netanya, and her three grandchildren, Tommy, Alaris, and Ilana, took their newly christened W Fishing Kayak into the water to paddle and have a good time. All three grandchildren are under 10 years old, with Tommy being the youngest at just 7 years old. Despite their young age, the dauntless trio had no problem paddling both on their own and sharing the boat with their elders.
Says Jane: “It was very windy that day, though the bay was flat water. My nine year old granddaughter Alaris took to it immediately and paddled away (and back again) with no troubles. My seven year old grandson Tommy tried his hand, and you can see we kept him on a loose tether because of the wind.”
All in all, it was a very successful and very fun first trip in the W Kayak for everyone, even the inexperienced younger kayakers. Jane and her family loved the boat so much that she went to the trouble of customizing it with impressive decals and dubbing it the ‘River Cat,’ a cool name without a doubt.
