Effective July 27th...



"Hurricane Kayaks and Legacy Paddlesports are pleased to announce an agreement to combine
their companies. The owners of Hurricane and Legacy will each have a significant stake in the new
entity. Don Grigg, co-owner of Hurricane, will serve as Chief Executive Officer.
Hurricane is a leading manufacturer of lightweight thermoformed kayaks. Legacy has been a
major innovator in whitewater through its Liquidlogic brand and fishing kayaks through its Native
brand. Native’s “Propel” pedal drive line of fishing kayaks is the first to offer reverse capability.
Liquidlogic will be adding a full line of recreational, sit-on-top, touring, and crossover designs
which will be sold exclusively through specialty dealers.
Hurricane will maintain operations at its manufacturing facility in Warsaw, NC. Native and
Liquidlogic products will continue to be manufactured in Fletcher, NC. The three brands
(Hurricane, Liquidlogic, and Native) will be combined under one sales platform. Paddlesports
retail partners will benefit from diverse brand offerings, competitive price points, premium quality,
excellent customer service and innovative product design."
We will all see how this turns out. Last year Liquid Logic pulled their boats off of the dealership floors and started doing direct sales with their whitewater boats. Well according to the press release...they are going back to dealership oriented sales. So who knows...maybe we will be adding a few new sub-forums to the site. http://hurricaneaquasports.com/
There's change on the horizon....but we are expecting the best from it.

Just a drop of water in an endless sea...
