Effort Inc Product Knowledge – IR Drydecks, IR Shockwave Sprayskirt, Astral Buoyancy Willis Jacket

As before, Effort Inc provides sales representation for Immersion Research and Shred Ready to kayak shops in the southeastern and mid-atlantic regions of the US as well as athletic representation for Astral Buoyancy. This video offers product knowledge on some special pieces of gear from IR and Astral. We stopped at one of our favorite play spots to film these shots. The video is meant to educate and inform the end consumer all the way up the food chain to the buyers at the retail stores about the products we represent. We’ll be back later with knowledge on more products, hopefully from another fun day on the water.

I made a stop by ye old outdoor shop, Diamond Brand, to see some of my friends only to find that they have been collecting cool toys and t-shirts.  Here is a short photo journal of my exciting visit to yon kayak boutique.

In other news I am nearly finished filming on a new video project with Anna Levesque.  Effort Inc’s editing station is about to embrace thirteen hours of footage we filmed over the past month.  We plan to wrap this thing up by October and Anna should be putting DVDs into the hands of consumers by Spring of 2010.

Yesterday we were filming at Wilson Creek and Maria Noakes threw a dead fish at Anna.  That’s pretty funny, but there’s more.  Being a dead fish and all it was pretty slippery, slimy, and fishy smelling… At approximately 10:15:01 AM, Maria made the decision to send this fish on his final journey, not to heaven, but to the lens of my camera.  Milliseconds earlier than Maria had planned, the slimy carcass of this delicious bass released from her clutches, changing its flight pattern from its intended target to about three feet to the left, where I happened to be sitting with my video camera, about to press record for a monologue by Anna for the new video.  At 10:15:02 AM I began writing this very story in my mind.  Now, if you’ve ever been slapped in the face with a wet paper bag of fish slime then you can probably sympathize with the next ten minutes I spent cleaning off my camera, face and hands.  We got back up and running, finished filming and had a nice paddle down Wilson Creek.  Mind you, my emotional scars are still healing.  Aside from her rude friends (Just kidding Maria!) Anna has been a delight to work with and I highly recommend taking a look at her business and products at WaterGirlsAtPlay.com

Lastly, my “Bra” Joey Hall and I are attempting to raise several dollars to cover our expenses to compete in the World Championships of Surf Kayaking in Portugal this coming July.

I leave you with the best advice I could possibly offer, encapsulated in this one photograph.
