The Wonderful World of Sit-Inside Kayaks!

Payette 116

Payette.jpgThis kayak season we are stepping up our game!  Exciting right?  Most people have seen our many sit-on-top and fishing models, but this year we have gone in a whole new direction!

I would like to introduce our newest member of the kayak family, the Lifetime Payette 116!  This is our first sit-inside kayak design and it is sure to knock your water socks off!  It comes in at 9’8” and is has the perfect mix of stability and speed.  The sleek design makes it a bit faster than other kayaks that are similar in length without compromising the stability you are accustom to in a Lifetime Kayak!  Think “best of both worlds”: speed of a longer kayak, stability of a shorter kayak.  The built -n seat and seat back make it comfortable while the molded-in carry handles make for easy transport.  Need to take some snacks with you on your paddle? The Payette 116 has a cargo hold with a cover for on water storage of those items you just can’t paddle without.  We’ve also added some stellar foot braces that can fit a wide range of heights making it easy to let those star struck friends and family take your new kayak for a test paddle.  Make sure you get it back though!

If you happen to be a fisherman, or maybe you know someone who is, it’s your lucky day!  We love this new kayak design so much we turned it into an Angler - Poof!  While the standard Payette 116 will come in a beautiful bright orange, the Payette 116 Angler version will be a tan color that won’t scare away the fish you encounter on your adventures.  The two flush mounted fishing pole holders and top mount rod holder that are included make this kayak a regular fishing machine!

Check out the Lifetime Store online to get your hands on one of these kayaks or visit our friends at the Sports Authority!

So there you have it!  A great new kayak design from Lifetime!  And don’t worry, it won’t be the last!

Position at Lifetime Products- Watersports Marketing Manager for Lifetime and Emotion brand kayaks

How long at Lifetime Products- Since January 2012!  I came as a packaged deal with the acquisition of Emotion Kayaks where I’d been for over a year.


Topics I blog about- Events and news in water sports, places to kayak, and enjoying the outdoors with friends and family.

My favorite products from Lifetime- Any of the Kayaks and paddleboards.  One of these days I’ll get my hands on a Fold-up Trailer and a Camp and Tailgate Table!

On a Saturday afternoon you can find me- This question will always depend on the season!  When the weather outside is frightful, you can find me at one of the nearby ski resort enjoying the fresh snow and crisp air or snowshoeing through the mountains.  Once the sun is shinning and the birds are chirping, my Saturdays are spent outdoors hiking, backpacking, biking, paddle boarding or my most favorite activity of all, kayaking!  All while enjoying the company of good friends of course!

My favorite escape- Anything whitewater, whether it be kayaking or rafting.  A more relaxing escape would be taking my camera out into the wilderness to photograph everything from wildlife to serene landscapes.

Bad News, Good News
Well, just when we think we have something figured out, plans always change. When we bought our house, we paid a little extra for our lot because of the abundance of trees. We were thrilled to find such a beautiful lot because the trees give us complete privacy from our neighbors, provide a gorgeous view from our family room and kitchen windows, and make for a unique play area for the kids. Unfortunately, over this past weekend, one of the tallest trees in our yard just up and died. No clue why. We happened to be playing with the kids in the back yard and noticed all the leaves on the Mountain Laurel treeare completely brown…which they aren’t supposed to be even though it’s autumn. Obviously, weare sad to loose such a big tree and we are hoping it’s not a disease that may spread to our other trees. But, on the bright side… w...
And the Winner of the Picnic Table Is….
... Brett R. of Logan, Utah! Brett is the lucky random winner of our June contest. Thanks to all of you who entered this month. As the winner, Brett will receive one of our new A-frame 6' picnic tables which is maintenance free - it can endure weathering without chipping, cracking, peeling, or rusting. The table also featuresan umbrella hole and folds completely flat for storage. And, since the polyethylene tabletop is stain resistant, spilled ketchup or baked beans will be easy for Brett to clean at his July 4th BBQ this year! Another great feature of this Lifetime picnic table is that it is lightweight and easy to move, whichBrettwill behappy to hear since he actually said in his entry that he was looking for a picnic table that is easy to move around to use on his patio and for camping. He also wanted a table that was eas...
New Limited Edition Purple Freestyle XL!
This spring, our watersports department has done something we never have before! We are coming out with a limited edition paddleboard. Sure, this will be the Freestyle XL board we all know and love but there is something that makes it special; its Purple! Not only is this our first limited edition kayak or paddleboard, it is also our first purple one! In total, there will be 325 Purple Freestyle XLs out there for the lucky few who can get there hands on one. I am personally a huge fan of purple, and I think this board looks great. It has all the great characteristics of our other color boards; stability, buoyancy, padding, bungee straps and two fins. The dark purple color really blends well with the black bungees and confetti white and black foam. It really pops and looks incredibly stylish. If your wife, daughter, best fri...
