For all the time we have been kayak fishing my buddy Jeff Maron has refused to paddle my Wavewalk kayaks. You know how it is to have another brand and be envious, I think that was the case, But he has been rumbling for some time about another boat since he sold off his ______ brand kayak. Right ow he has another friends boat he had borrowed. So he finally decided to give the W500 a spin. Lo and Behold we have another convert. His back did not hurt and he could stand to paddle seeing stuff long hidden by glare from a sitting position. Let's see how long it takes him to order. Hmmm now I have to let him spend some time with the world's premium kayak fishing rods, my Emmrods.
