Hold on tight, people! It's been a busy morning at OR and we're about to unleash it on ya'!
Here's Dagger's promo video of the Katana to give you an idea of what it looks like in action:
Old Town KayaksCheck out the new entry into the fishing kayak market from Old Town kayaks! This boat is almost as pretty as the fish you'll be stringing using it! The Predator comes in two sizes (13 and MX) and is one of the best thought out offerings we've seen so far. All of this innovation doesn't come cheap ($1400), but this is definitely a "you get what you pay for" situation! We can't wait to see the Predator out on the water!
SnowlizardIf you need to take your iDevice with you on the water, you are going to be hard pressed to find a better product than Snowlizards latest offerings for the iPhone/Pod and iPad. Waterproof and bomber with a solar panel to trickle charge your device or the back up battery, this will be a great addition to the paddling kits of those not getting out on the water to get away from it all.
Cudas FootwearStarted by two brothers in the SE, we love the water shoes coming out of this company. The water shoes are reasonably priced at $50-$65 and the flips are a great value at $30. Check them out and let us know what you think!
YakAttackCheck out this cool landing net from YakAttack! It breaks down and fits into a milk crate (we all have those on hand, right?), has a great handle for control and it's easy to use with one hand while landing that fish with your other!
WaveJetYou know you've always wanted a battery powered surf board (or SUP)! Who hasn't when they're headed "back to the barn" after a long paddle?? WaveJet is here to fulfill all our battery powered water toy fantasies with a board add on that is wrist controlled. For a cool $4000, that is (dreams don't always come cheap!) - includes recharging station.
Miscellaneous cool stuff...Goal Zero has provided probably 50 charging stations around Salt Palace. Thanks for keeping all of us outdoor folks connected, Goal Zero!
If you have a little person that's wanting to hit the trails with Mom and Dad, this bike by Joovy looks like a pretty stylin' way to start a mountain biking career!
Check out this great casting pool set up outside of Salt Palace for everyone trying out the fly fishing set ups.
For those that needed a little stretch before hitting the tradeshow floor, a little SUP yoga!
