Tom plays drums in the 60’s group “The Buckinghams” so the insignia on his kayak is the spindle from a 45 record.
Evan, from Canada, displays his Sea Rider folder. His comments…” I launched my Sea Rider at SSTIKS 2009, It’s a very fun to paddle kayak and my niece who hadn’t kayaked before got her first roll in it. My other niece got her first hand roll. I used arched inwales, a roll closure on the rear deck and a split aluminum coaming.”
