HBBCO Kayaks’ booth – overview (video)

We showed seven W kayaks in various configurations.
One was outfitted with an electric motor, one outfitted with two swivel seats for tandem paddling and fishing, one shown as a hunting or wildlife photography model, and three others.

We were the talk of the show

Just got back from the show and trying to get catch up.

We were the talk of the show! We have a lot of follow-up to do with clients that will be buying. Considering the fact that we were snowed in two day of the show we did fantastic.

The competition were showing their pedal driven kayaks right beside us and all they did was watch the customers walk by their display and check our Wavewalk display.

Stablest kayak for photography

I have the coolest kayak known to man, it’s called a Wavewalk Kayak and it’s the world’s stablest fishing Kayak!
I custom made a camera mount for this boat and all the images in this gallery are those captured using it, I hope you like…

The images on my site have no crop factor, in the water, with a few tricks I was able to get within 3 yards of the subject, something about being in the water in my Kayak they do not see me as a threat. Normally on land a green heron would fly away after spotting me at 50 yards. Also, considering that I’m using about 8,000 dollars worth of equipment in a kayak is so out of the ordinary or should I say crazy… Every time I go out I’m approached by people asking me if I’m worried about tipping over and destroying 8k worth of equipment, I tell them “not in my Wavewalk”. I’m able to access and photograph animals in spots so thick in vegetation that you can’t even see the water.

River rat floating down the Susquehanna on a kayak bass fishing trip

The fall feed is on in PA., Here is one of the Smallmouths I hooked, while on a 10 mile float down the West Branch of the Susquehanna, in my Wavewalk kayak.

I stood up most of the time which allowed me to wing a crank bait out and run it through the deep water haunts where the breeders lay.

I had no need to stop, cause I could stand to fish and sit down to relax every so often. This is extremely important to me cause I have gone through three back surgeries and I need to be able to stretch out once in a while so I don’t get stiff.

There was a stiff cross wind blowing up river which would be a problem with any other kayak, but my Wavewalk tracked straight and true even in the cross wind.

We offered over forty test rides in the Wavewalk fishing kayak, and got plenty of people interested. We also used the occasion to present our own transportation wheel for the W kayak:
