Update from Key Largo

By Captain Larry Jarboe

Florida Fishing Kayaks

Internet service is still negatory in Key Largo. I am at the Mickey D’s in Homestead with a hot signal but it is hot in the car, too. Plus, there is a curfew to get home before the gate closes on U.S. 1.

Still, we now have water and power at the bunker in the sky in Garden Cove (my house). And, all the boats survived. The two work boats will need refurbishing but the amazing Wavewalks weathered the storm without a scratch.

Looking forward to resuming our Wavewalk Adventures guide service at the beginning of October. In the meantime, my white S4 (the White Knight) is performing ferry service and supply delivery for boat people stranded in the local hurricane hole.

These Wavewalk vessels are the best hurricane preparedness and recovery portable shuttle craft that I have ever seen or used. Two W500’s, four W700’s, and three S4’s rode through Hurricane Irma like the powerful steeds they are and are ready to continue rescue duty.

Have to go. Seeking a little T.V. with rabbit ears. Two or three stations that work is better than a thousand that won’t come in thru a busted cable service.

Time to prep for the next one…

WA Wavewalk dealer finishes the 100 mile Ultra Marathon in less than 24 hours

Fishing Kayaks of Gig Harbor

Andrew and Chris

This is an off-kayak topic, but it shows that Wavewalk dealers don’t only paddle, fish and hunt!
Andrew Heath from the Gig Harbor, WA dealership successfully ran his first 100 mile Badger Mountain Challenge Ultra Marathon. His time was 22 hours and 40 minutes.
Congratulations Andrew!

Andrew, my son-in-law, partner in our Wavewalk dealership Fishing Kayaks of Gig harbor, and kayak fishing and hunting buddy, finished yesterday morning. He ran 100 miles in 22 hours and 40 minutes! He was 9th overall from a field of 68 runners.
What an incredible achievement! In the spirit of good sportsmanship I have challenged him to establish once for all who is faster in the 50 yard dash. Today only. I don’t think he will be taking me up. 😀 He is out of this world sore.

He had the family to help pace him after 50 miles. So some of my other sons (who did not train) helped and are also pretty sore. Drake (one of my twins) ran 12 miles with him. Jordan (my oldest) ran 7, and my daughter, Andrew’s wife did a couple of times as well.

Here are some of the pictures of the event. My daughter and grandkids were out supporting daddy. They had t-shirts made that said “My Daddy can run 100 miles….. can yours?” 😀

Enjoy

The 700 – More than a surprise

By Kent Johnsen

Fiske Kajak, Sweden

Finally, the Indalsälven river here in Undersåker is open for navigation!

Although I had paddled my Wavewalk 500 last year, paddling the 700 for the first time was more than a surprise for me… Life is wonderful!

I really like my 700 R, it is a part of nature  🙂

Wavewalk Fishing Kayak Rescues 2 Women in a Pedal Boat

By Michael Chesloff

I took a potential customer to a nearby lake to test paddle a W5oo. A few yards away, 2 ladies were launching their new paddle boat for the first time.

As this guy was returning to shore we heard a cry for help from the middle of the lake. The pedal craft was in trouble; the drive mechanism on their new boat had failed and they were stranded. As soon as my kayak reached shore I got in, paddled out and towed the grateful castaways to safety. I captured a few moments of the event using the camera on my phone. Of course, the lake was small and I don’t think they were in any great danger, though they certainly were grateful for the tow.
