Hi Eric,

I think this is the second time I’m writing but I’m
not sure. At the risk of sounding redundant, I just can’t express enough
my gratitude to you for making the Super Fun. It’s just such an incredible
boat and at 6’2, 210 lbs, incredibly comfortable. When I met you in Sierra
South on the Kern last year just before the release of the Super Fun you
pitched me on what then seemed like a boat only available in my dreams.
Having paddled for the last 7 years, mostly in my whiplash, I’d certainly
hit a plateau. Skeptical that any boat could really do all the things
you were claiming the fun series could do but really impressed with you
as a person, I went with my gut and rolled the dice and ordered a Super
Fun without ever paddling it. What this boat has done for my paddling
is immeasurable. I believe I’m paddling better today (Living in LA I only
get a very limited number of days on the river) than I’ve ever paddled
in my life, this includes the 3 years I lived in Jackson Wy, and paddled
60 days a year. The only thing I can liken this boat design to is the
introduction of shaped skis. You’ve done an incredible job in your design.
I commend you on being such an expert at your craft. Today I ran the class
V Upper Piru strech just north of LA. I ripped it. And as I told my boating
partner, it’s not me, it’s the boat. The boat creeks, handles big water
and plays like a dream. Honestly, I can’t thank you enough for reinvigorating
my interest in kayaking. Keep up the good work. I can’t imagine how you’ll
top this.

PS not to mention how fun it is in the ocean.
