Continuous Kayak Innovation with the New Lifetime Monterey

the new monterey.JPGOur water sports team is constantly trying to improve our current lineup, as well as design new innovative and stylish kayaks.  We looked at our popular Daylite and Lotus models carefully, put our heads together, and out popped the Lifetime Monterey!  The Lifetime Monterey Kayak is the newest addition to our kayak family, but it still has many of the great qualities of its cousins, the Daylite and the Lotus.

The new Monterey is 8’ in length and 29.5” wide.   We have added enhanced tracking channels to the bottom of the kayak which will help keep the kayak from turning side-to-side with each paddle stroke.  It will also allow the paddler to go a greater distance with less effort - who doesn’t want that?!  As with all Lifetime kayaks, the Monterey is extremely stable and great for everyone from kids to adults.

 IMG_3901.JPG This new kayak also has our new blow-molded, adjustable seat back.  The new seat is low profile and lightweight, so while you will be more comfortable, your kayak won’t weigh any more!   It has a curved design that supports the small of your back while you paddle, which really helps with getting full power out of each and every paddle stroke you take.  This seat back easily folds down and conveniently tucks into the storage area making it easy to transport and stash away for the winter.   The Monterey will also stand vertical on its back end, just like the Daylite and Lotus kayaks.  The new design is also compatible with the sail kit accessory if you are looking for some hands-free kayaking.

The Monterey is currently available at Sam’s Club and will be available in the coming months in the Lifetime Store Online.  And, if you head over to, you can actually enter to WIN a Lifetime Monterey Kayak!  Our new kayak is the grand prize in the Made in America blog giveaway which ends July 18. (The Monterey is made in our Clearfield, Utah factory.)  While you are at, be sure to check out her personal review and photos of the Lifetime Monterey to see what one customer has to say about our newest Lifetime kayak.

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.

Tetherball poles, new at BuyLifetime
Since the very beginning, Lifetime Products has been in the basketball business. Theyve made strong, durable poles, backboards, and rims, and innovated the adjustable height mechanism which brought basketball younger kids. Following in this tradition, Lifetime Products introduces the Lifetime Tetherball system! Many of you grown-ups out there probably remember the deluxe tetherball pole from your school-yard, and the heated competitive tetherball contests that would ensue during recess. With the Lifetime Tetherball system, now you can bring those childhood memories into your backyard so a whole new generation of tetherballers to enjoy! Whether its Tether Ball, Tetherball Sets, or Tetherball Pole, Tetherball is a great traditional outdoor game, and fun for all ages.
Backstage at Lifetime's Semi-Annual Meeting
Peering around the curtains, I began scanning the auditorium. It was quickly filling with around 800-900 Lifetime employees (judging by the seat capacity of 1000). Just a few more minutes until starting time... I told myself. Before I knew it, I felt the stage crew manager tapping my shoulder. Time to start he said. I looked at my laptop and queued up our opening video... here we go Welcome backstage to a behind the scenes look at Lifetimes Profit Sharing meeting 2011. If you read this blog 6 months ago, you know that our Profit Sharing meetingis a semi-annual tradition at Lifetime. This January marks the 44th time weve gotten together to share company updates, new products, and more often than not, a lovely bonus check for every employee in proportion to our profitability over the past 6 months! Pretty sweet employee perk, ...
