For Immediate Release- Spring 2020

Jackson Kayak is taken innovated measures to help ensure our paddlers are practicing social distancing through these trying times. The Distanced Duo and Big Stretch are modified kayaks off our Dynamic Duo and Big Tuna Line. Both of these kayaks embody the 6ft Rule between paddlers as recommended by the CDC.

From our team:

“The Distancing Duo was such a fun ride, not only did I follow the safety measures of 6ft but its just far enough apart that you can no longer hear each other in the rapids, adding an exciting element of disconnect.” – Dane Jackson
