Backcountry Purple Heart Slam a Success for Vets

On May 13-14, Project Healing Waters Inc. (https://www.projecthealingwaters.org/) and the United States Marine Corps Wounded Warrior Regiment (http://www.woundedwarriorregiment.org/) hosted the inaugural “Backcountry Purple Heart Slam” at Whitewater Bay in Everglades National park.

The event was a two-day fishing experience for twelve active duty/retired wounded marines (all Purple Heart recipients) in order to assist in their medical recovery and rehabilitation.

SeaDek was a proud sponsor of the event, and sent down some SeaDek gear for the guys to wear on the boats and after the weekend was over.

Backcountry_edits_small-1Six volunteer fishing guides took the Marines on a fishing adventure through the backcountry of the Everglades, and they all landed some really nice fish. One Marine summed up the event saying, “It was the best day of my life.”

What a great cause for the heroes of our country. We are so glad that the weekend was a success and happy that we could contribute.

Custom Installation Video on Darcizzle Inshore

We just finished a custom installation for none other than female fishing sensation Darcizzle Offshore! Whether trolling the stream for big wahoo or bowfishing in the swamp, Darcizzle has taken the fishing scene by storm, showing that she can get out there and catch more fish than the boys.

With her offshore center console fully SeaDeked, it was time to give her skiff, the Darcizzle Inshore, the full SeaDek treatment. We went down to visit Darcizzle last month to digitize her boat, then came back to SeaDek headquarters and designed her a fully custom kit featuring Seafoam Green and Mica with loads of logos and tricked-out design work.

After manufacturing the kit, it was back down to South Florida for installation, and it came out looking like a whole new boat. No more burning aluminum in the summer sun and she can fish all day in total comfort. Now she’s fishing in style, so get out there and tear ‘em up Darcizzle!

First CMFK Tournament a Major Success

We just heard from Corbin Kench, one of the founders of the Central Michigan Kayak Fishing Club, and he filled us in on all the details of their first tournament of the year at the Gull Lake Marina.

05-16 CMFK Series-7Despite almost 25 people backing out at the last minute due to an ugly weather forecast, they had a total of 39 anglers fishing the tournament, and as it turned out the, the majority of the weather missed them anyway!

05-16 CMFK Series-2

05-16 CMFK Series-3The anglers were competing for cash and a variety of other prizes, and with SeaDek as an Event Sponsor, there was plenty of sweet SeaDek gear on the prize table.

05-16 CMFK Series-5

05-16 CMFK Series-4

When it was all said and done, the top three winners were:

1st Place – Neil Vande Biezen $780

2nd Place – Jacob Kissling $306

3rd Place – Bryan Keeley – $156

05-16 CMFK Series-1

But best of all the guys raised $300 for the St. Judes Children’s Hospital from all the raffle items donated by sponsors—including SeaDek!

They caught some great fish and had a blast, with mild weather and only about an hour of light rain. After such a success, they are already looking forward to their next event and aiming to attract 75 anglers. Great job, guys!

05-16 CMFK Series-6

SeaDek Creates Trophies for WWA Rider Experience Contests

Swim platforms, coolers, cockpits, and now, trophies! Well, we always tell people that the uses for SeaDek are endless, and we mean it. To be honest, trophies weren’t on my list of possible applications, but hey, leave it to our design team to come up with some killer, out-of-the-box, ideas. 05-16_Masters_Trophys-1         05-16_Masters_Trophys-10

The trophies are for the first place winners of the World Wakeboard Association’s Malibu Rider Experience (http://www.thewwa.com/riderexperience/), which is a series of regionally placed amateur events around the United States for all WWA amateur divisions and Jr. pro Men’s. Riders at these events will be competing for the top spot in their respective divisions, as well as earning a spot in the WWA U.S. Wakeboard National Championships.

The first stop of the event just went off as a huge success for the Western region at Lake Las Vegas on May 13-15. The riders had a great event, and by the looks of the pictures we received, they were loving the trophies!

SeaDek Supports ORACLE TEAM USA at America’s Cup World Series New York

On May 7th and 8th, as Technical Suppliers of  ORACLE TEAM USA, SeaDek personnel were on hand to witness the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series New York. The race was an historic event, returning to New York Harbor for the first time since 1920 and drawing an estimated crowd of over 175,000.

After a gloomy training day on Friday, and a sunny but calm first racing day on Saturday, Sunday brought a fresh breeze and fair skies, making for ideal racing conditions. The teams were sailing at 17 knots across the Hudson River, wowing the masses of excited spectators and vying for critical points that will count towards the 35th America’s Cup in Bermuda next year.

Jason Gardner, VP of Marketing at SeaDek, and Serenity Gardner, Chief Operating Officer, were on the front lines of the race catching the action on film and providing updates on social media.

In the final winner-take-all race on Sunday afternoon, ORACLE TEAM USA was tied in points with Emirates Team New Zealand. Dealing with shifting winds and stiff currents, Emirates Team New Zealand came from behind on the final leg of the race to secure first place, with ORACLE TEAM USA coming in a close second.
