Emotion Kayaks Introduces New Sparky Kayak

Wyomissing, PA (May 12, 2011) – Emotion Kayaks, manufacturer of exceptional recreational kayaks and accessories, is delivering their newest kayak immediately; the Sparky, a kayak designed specifically for kids.

The smaller design and semi-flat shallow “V” hull allows for easy maneuvering without compromising the stability for fun, safety and easy paddling. The Sparky comes equipped with built in side handles and a front toggle handle to make transportation a breeze. A sit-on-top design allows for easy in and out access for those times when swimming is a must.

“The Sparky is another boat to help the whole family get into paddling,” says Tom Strauss, President of Emotion Kayaks. “It’s part of our philosophy to try to include everyone that wants to get into the sport and be outside on the water. We are pushing the design to fit and perform like our other boats, but specifically for the lighter, smaller paddler. Emotion Kayaks really is about getting people on the water and having fun.”

“We are hearing more retailers wanting to be able to offer a wider variety of boats for the whole family. So we are listening to them, designing and creating a great boat at a great price for the younger generation to get involved in paddling and working with our dealers to make sure they get them in time for this season.” says David D’Auteuil VP Sales of Emotion Kayaks.

The Sparky retails for $119.00 and is made in USA. More product details, retailers and information can be found on the Emotion Kayaks website.
