Jackson Kayak Sales Team Rocks Ecuador

JK_group_shot

Just finished our season in Ecuador and looking forward to another fun season with our British Columbia operation Endless Adventure on the Slocan River in the West Kootenays.

For one of our last trips Endless Ecuador had the pleasure of hosting the sales team at Jackson Kayak for a jam packed week of paddling and camaraderie in the lush mountains and rivers of Ecuador.

Thanks to team member Sean Morley for putting together a blog with a video of a run on Sardinas Grande!  Check it out!

 

Highlights of the trip include:

JK_sean_radd_abbyAll said and done the trip was one of the most memorable trip we have experienced at Endless.  The crew brought positive energy to the scene on and off river. Meal times were full of laughter and cheer as the tight crew shared their experiences from the past days and excitement grew anticipating the adventure to come.  A special shout out to Marty Cronin for tirelessly assembling the crew that would rock the foundations of La Ponderosa and cement a tradition of JK paddlers dominating the rivers of Ecuador.
