Few times in life you see people making a difference; we received this email from one of our happy customers and wanted to Inspire others to make a difference:
You might find it interesting that I put your trainer to a good use. After training on it for some 350 hours (and more on real water) I kayaked down the Yukon river last Summer. The 1500 miles took 30 days and turned out to be my biggest adventure so far. …San Francisco Bay Area NBC did this report, where your trainer is also visible: http://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/local/Gilroy-Family-Embarks-On-5000-Mile-Alaskan-Adventure-To-Aid-Blind-Athletes-264616111.html
Although I was not aware of this – the first ever full kayak descent on the Yukon also happened last year by a fellow named Bryan Brown. I met him along the way and we became good friends… I was using a mediocre inflatable kayak, and likely the 1500 miles is the longest distance ever traveled on an inflatable…
Thank you for building these great kayak trainers,
With Best Regards,
This is truly inspirational and we want to thank Imre for his valued feedback.
Keep on Paddling!
