SEA KAYAK NEWS

Use it or Lose it in SA (21/4/2017)
The Radical Economical Transformation Plan [RETP] as being proposed by the South African Government will spell benefit for some and doom for others. South Africans, as well as those who import from it around the world, will have to become far more consistent about buying from South African companies if they wish to continue to have what they have always taken for granted here. Small companies offering unique products and specific skills will be hard-pressed to remain competitive and productive under RETP. Charging heavy import taxes as they do in countries such as Brazil to protect local industry will probably not happen here, contributing to the threats facing companies, as has been seen in the clothing and plastics industries. Consumers, including those in the market for small craft such as kayaks, need to realize they have an obligation to support local manufacturers. If you are in the market for kayaks, SUPS, surfboards, etc. your first port of call should be outlets striving to supply South African products which are produced in South Africa. PaddleYak Craft and Products are all produced in South Africa. These include the sought-after PaddleYak Kayaks, the unique Launchette as well as the innovative SOLIDFROM Canopies and Parasol Umbrellas, all uniquely South African. The message should be clear: Choose wisely when you buy. Choose South African, providing unique products to the world.
