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?” 😀
I went fishing Sunday evening and caught me a 28″ Snook. Was a blast in the 700.
My first snook in the 700. 🙂
Wavewalk kayak are a stable and versatile fishing platform. My choice is the W700 model that is rigged with Yak Attack and Launch pad rod holder accessories.
I love fishing from my W700 alone or with a friend.
Springtime may be a little chilly north of the Florida Line but we are having wonderful weather in Key Largo.
Anthony from Broward County and his friend, Tom from New York, joined me for a wonderful Wavewalk day exploring the heart of Pennekamp State Park.
Tom had previously capsized a conventional kayak and ruined his cell phone on another non-Wavewalk expedition with another outfitter.
But, he had no problem standing in his W700 while Anthony took a well deserved snooze.
We paddled over 3 miles exploring the flats, creeks, and sunken barge wreck.
Anthony will come back to share a future Wavewalk Adventure with his fiancee. He is looking forward to putting a W700 in his garage as soon as he gets a house.
And, Tom will return to New York as a pro-yakker and apprentice commercial fisherman who has mastered the art of catching bait.
