Beluga CRX 2G
John Wiorkowski, Texas
"We first paddled a sea kayak
two years ago on a cruise to Alaska to celebrate our 30th wedding
anniversary. Both my wife and I were immediately taken by the combination
of moderate exercise, safe adventure, environmental friendliness,
and closeness to nature provided by sea kayaking.
I wanted to buy a two-seater which was easy to handle, both in and
off the water and which would be comfortable and safe on the large
man-made lakes surrounding Dallas, Texas.
I bought several magazines and talked to several dealers, but I wasn't
really satisfied till I talked to Peter and the Easy Rider staff who
helped us home in on a Beluga CRX. In addition to the basic sea kayak,
I ordered an outrigger (it gets awfully windy on Texan lakes), a mount
for an electric trolling motor and two spinnaker sails. Peter also
suggested rigging the kayak for an Airfoil Sail in case I wanted one
in the future.
The sea kayak arrived in good time and in good condition, and the
learning curve for using it has been rapid -- the controls are easy
to use and sensibly placed.
We immediately saw the advantage of the Spinnaker Sails which allowed
us to just cruise with the wind at our backs. The electric trolling
motor came in handy on a few of our trips and took us a little farther
than would have been comfortable if we had to paddle all the way.
And within two months Peter's prudence in rigging the kayak for an
Airfoil Sail was apparent, and I ordered one.
From the quality of the kayak, the
versatility the company has added to it, the safety the outriggers
afford, and Easy Rider's courteous and informative help, I have been
totally satisfied with my introduction to this marvelous sport."
