Plastic paddling craft swamping the market? (17/4/2019)
PaddleYak Sea Kayak Productions CC reports that it is receiving regular offers from the East for play paddle craft, leading to concerns that the market is being swamped by such plastic toys. Whilst plastic craft may be fun for children and novices, they fall short of what is generally understood to be sea kayaks, usually being fine, light craft in fibreglass and wood. What's alarming is that even sophisticated buyers, including hotels, etc. buy plastic craft at first, apparently in the deluded belief that they have acquired "kayaks", or that proper kayakers would settle for such craft. Some plastic craft are approaching "christmas tree" status, being over-designed and fitted with unnecessary and oversized fittings, all adding to the weight and unwieldy gaudiness of the craft, in some instances even interfering with their sea-worthiness and performance. Paddlers in South Africa and those who can buy and import from here, are fortunate indeed to be able to find real, hand-crafted fibreglass sea kayaks at world-beating prices right here. Discerning buyers should distinguish between budget plastic play craft and real, hand-crafted sea kayaks. Both have their purposes so buyers need to decide what they are wanting in a craft and buy accordingly. For your proper, hand-crafted sea kayak, which will grace your vehicle, your property and your paddling, order from PaddleYak Sea Kayak Productions CC today at PaddleYak Sea Kayak Productions cc at email@example.com or phone 0825562520 or see www.paddleyak.co.za .
