Kayak Fishing Intel NuCanoe

The term it’s a small world is often used in conversations; in the Kayak Fishing business, it’s an even smaller world! Last night Adam and I had the chance to sit down with Blake Young and his wife Deanna; if you don’t know who Blake is, he’s the Director of business development for NuCanoe, Inc.

Blake and Deanna Young NuCanoeTurns out Blake used to live right around the corner from the infamous “The Beaver” bar in Bellingham Washington. The bar I often frequented while stationed up in Washington. Enough about that, you’re not looking for a trip down memory lane with the YakSushi. So what interesting tidbits did we learn from our meeting with the Young’s?

First off, I was highly impressed with Blake’s openness for criticism. Too often we see companies that take criticism personal; not wanting to listen to their consumers and trying to de-value our opinions… Not NuCanoe, Blake acknowledged my issues with their current line and immediately showed us some of the companies future plans.

Although I can’t reveal any specific details about what’s in the works over at NuCanoe, I can say that I was highly impressed.

Keep an eye on NuCanoe; you can check them out at NuCanoe.com or on facebook www.facebook.com/nucanoe

I have a 10' and it weights 59 lbs without gear. I just got a new cart from NuCanoe and it has made a world of difference in transport.

Brad, we should have a review up very shortly.... The author is waiting for some good pics. :-* The main issue I have with the NuCanoe is it's width, it doesn't fit on my trailer or ontop of my explorer. It dose fit fine on Adam's Jeep Cherokee though.

What is the maximum weight that the 12' nucanoe can hold?
