SeaDek Contributes to Brevard Zoo’s Safari Under the Stars

On April 28th, Brevard Zoo welcomed 450 guests to its annual Signature fundraiser, Safari Under the Stars, and as a contributing sponsor of the event, members of the SeaDek team were on hand to take part in the festivities.  It was truly a “night of nights” with fantastic pre-parties in three themed parts of the Zoo where wonderful hors d’oeuvres, libations, live entertainment and fascinating animals set the tone for the main event.

Bindi Irwin traveled all the way from Australia to participate in the evening’s festivities and share her wisdom, insights and experiences that coincided so precisely with that our Zoo is doing to benefit our community and the world.  Additionally, Bill Klein and Dr. Jennifer Arnold (The Little Couple from TLC TV) were here as special guests to help unveil the Zoo’s new Exceptional Nature Space, designed with funds raised at last years Safari Under the Stars to be a place of learning, recreation, enrichment and creativity from youth with varying exceptionalities.

With an amazing dinner, exciting presentations, lively auction and loads of camaraderie, the Zoo’s critical missions were the beneficiary of everyone’s commitment to our community and future generations.  SeaDek was thrilled to be part of an event that raised $630,000 for such a magnificent cause.  And the celebration didn’t end early!  As dinner wrapped up, the party transitioned into the now famous, Safari After Dark, where a live band and dancing were highlighted with delightful late night treats, a Cigar Lounge, and delicious liqueurs.

The zoo is already anticipating next year’s event, and have already marked their calendar for April 28, 2018. Visit www.brevardzoo.org to learn how you can get involved!

SeaDek on Sai La Vie

With boating season in full swing, we have been seeing tons of great SeaDek jobs from our Certified Fabricators and Installers in the North. These recent shots come from Contemporary Marine Flooring, a SeaDek Certified Fabricator based in Spokane, Washington. Scott and the team have been all across the Pacific Northwest performing custom SeaDek installations on boats of all kinds.

Check out their clean and accurate work:

Sai La Vei is a 43’ Silverton located at the Twin Rivers Marina in Twin Rivers, Washington. Storm Gray over Black in a 6mm thickness made for a simple but elegant look on this cruiser. It also looks like Eddie the SeaDek dog was on the docks to oversee the installation!

SeaDek forms a strong bond to aluminum as well. This platform on an Alumaweld fishing boat at Moyie Marine in British Columbia perfectly fit the bill, and Scott assured us that they do catch fish that big in Moyie!

SeaDek Featured on Mars Rover Concept Vehicle

Rockledge, FL, June 15, 2017 — Always exploring new applications for their innovative EVA non-skid products, SeaDek is excited to be a supplier for NASA’s recently unveiled Mars Rover concept vehicle. Designed and built by Parker Brothers Concepts—best known for their futuristic concept vehicles such as the Tron Bike from ‘Tron: Legacy’ and the Batmobile from ‘The Dark Knight’—the rover is sleek and rugged, designed to tackle the harsh terrain of the martian environment.

At 28 feet long, 14 feet wide, and 11 feet tall, the Mars Rover features six off road air-less wheels with SeaDek nonskid on the spokes, as well as a laboratory in the rear of the vehicle to conduct research and experiments. SeaDek was utilized throughout the interior of the rover, providing traction in what would likely be hazardous conditions, as well as padding to protect astronauts inside the vehicle during turbulent passages.

While the concept vehicle won’t be making a trip to the red planet, it will be touring the East Coast as part of NASA’s “Summer of Mars” campaign. After its recent unveiling at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor’s Complex, the rover currently resides on display before the tour. Visit https://www.kennedyspacecenter.com/landing-pages/summer-of-mars to learn more about the exhibit.

Ryan Dodd Takes First at 58th Masters

We would like to congratulate SeaDek pro-team rider Ryan Dodd for his impressive first place win at the 58th Masters Water Ski and Wakeboard Tournament. His massive 243 foot jump secured him an easy victory as he soared past the competition in the Masters Men’s Jump category.

The historic jump broke the Masters Course Record, the Canadian National Record, and Ryan’s own personal best record!

Taking place on May 26-28 at the iconic Callaway Gardens on Robin Lake in Georgia, the SeaDek team was on hand to witness all the action as a repeat sponsor, and enjoyed three beautiful days and nights on Pine Mountain with friends, athletes, and other industry leaders.

After speaking with Ryan, we learned that this win was particularly special.

“Nothing can compare to the Masters,” said Ryan. “The pressure, the atmosphere, the crowd, and the loyal waterski fans make this event the highlight of the year for our industry. I feel the pressure at the Masters every year and I love it. For me, the Masters course record, which was over 10 years old, has been super high on my bucket list! All in all I just went on the water to do my best and put a show on for the crowd.”

Congratulations Ryan! We are proud of all your hard work and thrilled to have you as part of the SeaDek family!
