This past Saturday I had the privilege of helping out with another demo day with the great folks from Mariner Sails of Dallas. These events are always a lot of fun and very successful. I am extremely passionate about kayak fishing, and as I continue to be a student of the game I enjoy passing on what I've learned to guys just starting out.
Since joining the Mariner Sails team I have been given opportunities to expand my knowledge base on several different kayaks and what sets them apart from each other. Each brand has something unique to them that different people gravitate to. Theres something about letting a first time kayaker demo a few different boats and seeing that light bulb go off when they find that perfect fit for them. What I tell everyone that comes to demo, is that there is no perfect kayak, just the kayak that meets the majority of your needs.
What I love about Mariner Sails is that demo days like this one are about exposing people to kayaking and giving people the opportunities to hands on inspect kayaks that they have only seen on the internet. Everyone one of the outstanding members of the Mariner team are truly passionate about the sport and spreading the word. It's never just about the sale with these guys and I think that's what draws people in the most.
Mariner Sails will be hosting another huge demo opportunity at the annual spring Kayak Fisherman's Get-Together at Lake Lavon on May 10th. We will be at the East Fork Park Pavilion starting at 11am. Come by and talk shop with the extremely knowledgeable staff that Mariner has attending and have a lot of fun.
