Last weekend’s Paddlefest 2013 was another resounding success with the event’s big sellers being standup paddle boards (SUPs), lightweight kayaks, rack systems for cars and super lightweight paddles, according to John Nemjo, owner of Mountainman Outdoor Supply Company.
Nemjo was pleased that his new nine foot lightweight canoe, “The Adirondack Passage”, sold very well at the show. He said it rivals Hornbeck’s “Lost Pond” boat.
“Hurricane kayaks, Warner paddles and Wilderness Systems kayaks also proved especially popular,” Nemjo said.
The manufacturer reps love coming to this show, according to Nemjo, because of the setting and the fact that it’s one of the few where folks can test paddle the boats.
“They go to a lot of shows in auditoriums in big cities, but this is where paddle sports happen,” Nemjo said. “They love coming here.”

Customers at Paddlefest came from as far away as Maine, Canada and England. Continue reading
