    Serious dreaming, but “what the heck?”…

    Recommedation for a “big guy”..
    60 year old
    Still physically strong and a very solid swimmer, but not as nimble as before.
    Might try some fishing out of it

      Hi Bob,

      Thanks for your message. Dreaming is great and we want to help you realize that dream! With your comment on fishing our first recommendation would be the NuCanoe Frontier. Another option would be the Jackson Coosa. Best way to find out if you are dreaming is come down for a paddle demo. For a $20 fee (which is then applied toward your purchase of a kayak) you get the opportunity to test paddle a few different kayaks under the helpful eye of one of our staff. We have a few models that will fit you, all of which are sit on top fishing platforms (versus the sit in cockpit style). Plenty of time to test paddle. To arrange a demo paddle please call the store location nearest you, 815-636-9066 in Rockford and 630-506-5706 in Aurora.

      We also have an event next weekend, Northern Illinois Hunting and Fishing Days, which would be a great opportunity to test paddle a few kayaks. And the best part is paddling at the event next weekend is free. No registration needed for this event, but if you are coming out please let us know so we make sure we have a few models for you to paddle. Thanks for your interest in kayaks. Please let us know how we can help you with your paddling needs. Have a good weekend.

    I am so thankful for what you have shared about this Kayak season sale! My son is an extreme fan of Jackson Kayak and he really wanted it as our gift for him. I will be checking if his choice is still on sale and then I am going to discuss it with my husband.

      Hello Joy,

      Thanks for your interest in Jackson Kayaks. We are a dealer and have a great inventory of kayaks from them and overall. However, you have come across a post for a sale that occurred end of last season. This sale is no longer valid. That said, please let us know what model your son is interested in. Thanks and have a great day.
