PFD Design competition

BOATUS is conducting the third competition to create the ideal PFD…one that is so comfortable, and fashionable, that it will be worn without a second thought. The prize is $10,000, but learn why that is mere chicken scratch loose change in the incredibly long process of bringing an innovative PFD design to the market.

Welcome to Wavetamer Adventures. Just after moving to Alaska in 1985, a buddy and I started a kayak business selling Feathercraft folding kayaks. We called ourselves Wavetamer Kayaking. Over the years that interest in sea kayaks has expanded to include the history of the craft and the love of the destinations, skills, equipment, and adventures that go along with their use and enjoyment. Some of that fondness is expressed within these pages. Enjoy!

And remember…

Be safe; have fun out there!
