We are fortunate that kayak shops have been spared the economic impacts of COVID, and it looks like 2021 is going to be even bigger than last year -- everyone wants to get outside and on the water! The downside is most kayak manufactures have already pre-booked and sold out of all of their production capacity for the whole year. This is the first time we've ever heard of this happening. That means there will be no custom orders for kayaks until this fall and you will be limited to buying from what is in stock at your dealer. Kayak Academy planned ahead and ordered a lot of boats last fall so our inventory is in good shape at the moment, but if you want to buy a kayak pull the trigger soon or you'll be waiting until 2022.
