Joey, Chris and myself have Joined Team Riot Kayaks

I am pleased to announce that I have joined with Riot Kayaks as a team paddler. From 1997-2000 I was involved with Riot as the Southeastern sales rep, and have always been a fan of their boat designs. I feel the company has come a long way since then, from boat design to customer service. They really seem to have their ducks in a row. The ’06 line looks awesome and I’m really looking forward to paddling the boats. I’ll be working on several levels with the company: With R&D to help design future Riot kayaks, networking with the dealers and Riot sales reps, providing continual, up to date video, photos and stories for the Riot web site, and much more.

I am equally happy to announce that my two great friends and paddling comrades, Joey Hall and Chris Gragtmans, have joined the team as Riot Pros as well.

Additionally, Joey and Chris are team paddlers for Shred Ready and H2O Audio. We three work together really well and will, as usual, be teaming up for paddling missions, filming, demos and web posts.

The three of us are pictured here hanging out together. You may notice that Chris looks much smaller. It only seems that way because he’s so much younger. He just turned 20. Sometimes we let him actually stand up in the back of the truck. But only when he’s been a good boy.

Riot is getting us set up with access to their web site so we’ll be making posts on their news section as well as here at Now we’re just waiting on a shipment of boats so we can get started. We have some Magnums, Astros and more on the shipment. Drop us an email if you want to borrow a demo boat.

See you later. Until then, keep fighting Mr. Tooth Decay.
