This past Monday evening (7/1/2013) the Jackson Action Wagon & the Jackson Outdoor Experience Trailer teamed up with Off The Grid Adventures on Watauga Lake for a fun lake demo and a Stand-Up Paddleboard Race! Lots of folks & kids came out to enjoy this fun event and to check out the Jackson Kayak boats & Stand-Up Paddleboards we had for FREE demo! Thanks to FISH SPRING MARINA for letting us host the event at their location!
Off The Grid Adventures kicked off the event with a SUP race for the kids. It was awesome to see all the youth charging hard in the race and having lots of fun! The adults were up next for a SUP Race that went out and around a buoy at the end of the Marina, which made for a 3/4 mile long race course. Needless to say we were all sweating by the time we reach the finish line on the shore! Jamison Evans proved he was the race master of SUP with his 1st place finish, followed closely by Nick Machi in 2nd place! The most important highlight of the race was we all beat Tommy Clapp and that’s all the really matters!!
After the races were finished several folks and kids tried out kayaking for the first time with the JK boats provided by the J.A.W. & J.O.E. There were lots of smiles and good times had by all! Meanwhile, freestyle SUP was taken to a new level by Jamison, Tommy, Nick & I! We put on quite a show for the crowd making fools of ourselves trying to stern pirouette the SUPerCHARGER & the SUPerNATURal. It was ridiculous fun!! Jamison brought his GoPro camera and we put the Jackson Kayak GoPro Ready Mounts to work on the boards to capture some seriously funny shots! Prepare to laugh from this video by Jamison Evans!!!
