Paddlesport 2014

This past week, I had the pleasure of participating for my fifth year at Paddlesport, in Somerset, New Jersey. This event is the largest kayak and canoe show on the east coast, and has some great deals on products for the kayak fishing enthusiast. Each year, I help out with the Ocean Kayak and Old Town booths, and give various kayak fishing and paddling seminars. The Johnson Outdoors crew had a blast again this year! I am still recovering from being on my feet, running between the booths and seminars each day. As expected, the Predator 13 and MX were very well received, and we sold out of Predator MX kayaks by Saturday morning.
Unfortunately, the drive home took me from major rain downpours in New Jersey, into whiteout snow conditions in the mountains, and I even had to ditch the car down the road from my house and huff it the rest of the way home Sunday night. I even missed The Walking Dead season finale!
While the weekend ended a little rough, it was great hanging out with all my buddies again this year and making some new friends! If you have never been to Paddlesport, you definitely need to put this show on your bucket list.
