Jackson Kayak to Start Building SUP Boards?

Prototype Jackson Kayak SUP Board

At the recent Outdoor Retailer show in Salt Lake City, Jackson Kayak showed up with a brand new prototype stand up (SUP) surfboard.

According to a post on the Playak.com forum, a paddler said it was so new that the rep for Jackson wasn’t even aware of it until that day of the show.

Of course, it could be just market testing at this stage but if they started offering SUP boards through their regular distribution channels, it could quickly get them into paddling shops that wouldn’t normally bring in a line of SUP boards.

I am going to need to keep a close eye on this development.
