Retail Move Brings Patented Stand-Up Fishing Kayaks to Eastern Canada
Newburyport, MA—May 9, 2012—A new international retail partnership has introduced stand-up kayaking and patented stand-up fishing kayaks to Canada. Freedom Hawk Kayaks and SAIL Outdoors Inc., have joined forces to introduce the award-winning Pathfinder and other Freedom Hawk angling kayaks to SAIL retail locations in Eastern Canada. The unique line of river and saltwater kayaks features a patented outrigger system that enables anglers and hunters to stand safely and comfortably with superior sight.
"SAIL is delighted to carry Freedom Hawk Kayaks in our stores here in Canada," said SAIL Buyer Nicolas Brisson, paddle sports and fishing products. "The Canadian outdoor consumer is an excellent market for these unique open water kayaking products."
"Our company is excited about international growth and the strategic partnership with SAIL, one of Canada’s leading retailers in the outdoor equipment space," said Freedom Hawk President David Hadden. "We make the best fishing kayaks in the world, and when it comes to camping, hunting, and fishing, we can think of no better place for our products than in the rivers, lakes, and coastlines of Canada."
Freedom Hawk’s Pathfinder kayak received a 2012 Editor’s Choice Award from Fly Fish America. The kayak outriggers’ boats all offer exclusive benefits: a patented outrigger system that features two levers conveniently located on either side of the boat’s hull to open the rear outriggers so users can enjoy stability for stand up fishing and polling; a retractable casting brace that enables hunters and fishermen to stand up with complete confidence; an optional kayak motor mount that permits quick installation to transform the Pathfinder into a motorized kayak.
