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.

Our Chinese New Year Celebration
Occasionally our family likes to take a time out from our usual dinner routine and enjoy something unique from a culture different than ours. Last week, since Chinese New Year was in full swing, we thought it would be a great opportunity to enjoy a part of the rich Chinese culture. Oftentimes we celebrate with extended family or a couple of families in our neighborhood but this year we decided to try something a little more trouble-free and just celebrated with our little family. We started by bringing one of our Lifetime 6 foot folding banquet tables up from the basement and placing it (with the legs unfolded) on a couple of short storage bins. This allowed the table to sit about 18 inches from the ground. Although sitting on the floor isnt necessarily a dining practice in the Chinese culture,some close friends started doing...
Planning a Super Bowl Party!
Super Bowl Sunday is a fine excuse to throw a great party. You and your guests can cheer on a favorite team, laugh together at outrageous Super Bowl commercials and last but not least, catch up while enjoying the all-important food and drink. Follow these tips to plan a fun, casual Super Bowl Party: Make your guest list and invite your friends with a football-themed e-vite. They can RSVP and get maps to your home online. Purchase football-themed party goods and decorations at a party supply store. Pick up napkins, plates, cups, streamers, etc in your teams colors. If you are on a tight budget, concentrate your decorating on the table where the food will be served. Prepare the Chili Boats with Fixins the day before the Super bowl and simply re-heat. These savory chili boats are tempting because guests can customize their ...
Is Your Folding Table Safe?
As consumers, we have become accustomed to looking for safety features when making important purchase decisions, especially when it comes to products like vehicles, power tools, and baby items. But, did you know you should also look for safety features when buying a folding table, too? In my past few blog posts, I've been diving into various topics that help you make more educated folding table purchases. Unfortunately, probably the most overlooked features consumers consider when buying a folding table are safety features. The last thing you need is for your table to collapse while you are using it! So, what should you look for to ensure you are purchasing a safe table? A secure locking mechanism for the table legs. Now, the tricky part is that locking mechanisms will vary depending on the leg style. For rectangular banque...
