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 WovenbyWords.com, 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 WovenbyWords.com, 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.

Indoors at the Outdoor
For the past several years our company has participated in the Annual Outdoor Retailer Show at the Salt Palace in Downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. You’ll find the show filled with aisle after aisle of camping gear, climbing gear, custom water craft, outdoor apparel and the like. This year at our booth you would have also found our sweet Fold-Up Utility Trailer and our convertible Yard Cart.But anyone who’s been to a trade show knows that besides touting your own wares, half of the reason you’re there is to see what everyone else is doing. So while meandering through the multitude of retailers just trying to keep up on relevant trends, I happened across some of our tables. A configuration of several card tables made for a very practical and common use of our product – a convenient meeting area to discuss the business of the day....

Repeat to Three-Peat?
The NBA Finals are hours away. Who do you have? Either way I think this is going to be an exciting rematch from the 2013 finals. Finals rematches don't come around too often so make sure you watch history in the making. The Spurs are coming for redemption and Heat are trying for a three-peat. The NBA Finals are always an exciting time of year in my house. We like to grill up BBQ for dinner and watch the games as a family. After the games, get out on a Lifetime Basketball system and shoot some hoops with the family to bring it home.
