Hello, my name is Charlie Manning. I am 75 years old and I guess you would say I am an experienced kayaker. I have a 12 foot keyhole cockpit kayak that I use in the many deep swamps of eastern NC for taking photos. Knees and back reflect these years and I thought this was the year I would have to give up my kayaking. The “L” position for any length of time has become impossible. Entry and especially exit had become something I dreaded to do! I came across Steve Anderson of SOBX Kayaks web page. I looked for awhile and then gave Steve a call. He is a really fine gentleman! We arranged a demo time and I drove the 87 miles from Washington NC to Beaufort NC and got a WaveWalk in the water. Took less than 5 minutes to know this is a totally different boat than anything I have ever seen. I can step in and step out easily . NO “L” position to dread!!
I would never attempt trying to fish from my other kayak but the WaveWalk will open another dimension for me. Needless to say I left with one on top of my car! Thanks to Steve and WaveWalk I will “own” the swamps in eastern NC for a few more years. A few good gator photos and some big bass are my next goals.
Getting it rigged for my needs today. Steve gave me a lot of good Ideas.
