Wake foiling delivers a completely new riding experience, bringing the magic of flight to tow sports. Also featured is the fully SeaDeked Super Air Nautique, providing a world-class wake for the foil to carve on.

SeaDek is Proud to Sponsor BlueTube, Inc.

What is BlueTube?

“BlueTube, Inc. is a 501(c)3 company based in Melbourne, FL with a big mission: create clean beaches and plastic-free oceans. With a little effort from a lot of people in many places all the time we can solve these problems. BlueTubes are bright blue, easy-to-spot containers that hold bags. They are installed at beach crossovers so people can grab a bag on their way to the beach, pick up trash and throw it away. Beach-goers donate their clean, used plastic bags to the container, and the cycle continues. BlueTubes can be found at county-managed beaches in Brevard County, Florida – including Satellite Beach and Melbourne Beach.”

SeaDek Cares About Our Ocean

SeaDek began by sponsoring Lee Wenner boat ramp and McFarland boat ramp in Cocoa last year and is now sponsoring a total of 5 Blue Tubes on the Indian River including Kennedy Point Park, Pineda Landing and Christenson’s Landing.

“BlueTube, Inc. is funded through annual sponsorships of BlueTubes on public beaches and sales of BlueTubes at private beach crossovers. Sponsorships and sales cover the costs of BlueTubes as well as public awareness and research. Part of the proceeds from sponsorships go to Sea Education Association (SEA) out of Woods Hole, Massachusetts for research on plastic in the oceans. SEA has been collecting data on ocean plastic since 1986. SEA students and scientists tow nets along the surface in the Atlantic Ocean, Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea from their two research ships. Each piece of plastic debris from thousands of tows is counted and preserved, and this data is used for further studies.” – from www.bluetubebeach.org

SeaDek joins marine industry leaders on Capitol Hill

Rockledge, FL On May 15-17, 2017, SeaDek Marine Products will join a broad group of marine business owners, representatives, and lobbyists in Washington, DC, in a push to strengthen the industry’s collective advocacy impact.

With a new administration in office and 62 new members of congress, this year’s visit is especially critical, and will provide the opportunity to show the newly elected officials how policies related to trade, taxes, fuel, and the environment have a direct and lasting impact on the boating industry as a whole.

“We are proud to be representing our industry and fighting for the issues that matter to all of us, both manufacturers and boaters alike,” said Jason Gardner, VP of marketing and advertising at SeaDek. “The boating industry is a major economic force, and it is important that we make our representatives aware of the impacts that certain legislation can have on us.”

The ABC is the industry’s most important advocacy event, providing the opportunity to build and strengthen relationships with congressmen and representatives who play a key role in legislation that directly affects boating in America. The two-day event features keynote speakers, scheduled visits to Capitol Hill, and the opportunity to network with other members of the boating community, with the common goal of ensuring a healthy future for recreational boating.  More information can be found at www.nmma.org/government/abc.

Bill Booth’s SeaDeked Snake Hunting Boat

The proliferation of Burmese Pythons in South Florida is no secret anymore, with the giant snakes exploding in population and decimating native wildlife that doesn’t stand a chance against the colossal constrictors.

Rising to the challenge of eradicating the foreign creatures, outdoorsman extraordinaire Bill Booth has made a science out of stalking, catching, and removing the snakes from the Florida Everglades, which he has spent his entire life hunting, fishing, and traversing.

When Bill reached out to us with a custom SeaDek project in mind for his new swamp boat, we designed a kit that was perfect for his new backcountry ride. The Olive Green over Black kit prevents any slipping on the boat’s slick aluminum deck, and stays much cooler than the bare aluminum, which can get unbearably hot in minutes in the South Florida sun.

Click here to check out this great article on one of Bill’s recent snake hunts from Outdoor Life magazine.

Thank you for your hard work Bill, every snake counts!

Tristan Fishing for FWC Saltwater Life List

SeaDek brand ambassador Tristan Hill has set his sights high and set out to catch all 71 species on the FWC Saltwater Fish Life List, an ambitious and admirable feat. The young angler from the lower Florida Keys has taken his love of fishing to the next level with the challenge, learning new tricks and techniques along the way and fishing everywhere from the flats to blue water.

Last fall, Tristan submitted photos of himself with 10 of the species on the list, allowing him to join the first tier of the Saltwater Fish Life List Club rewards program. He received a T-shirt and certificate for his efforts. He has even caught the attention of some high profile fishing personalities such as Darcizzle Offshore!

Last week he made a trip out to deep water and nailed his first dolphin and tilefish:

We are rooting for Tristan here at SeaDek, and are happy to have him onboard as he checks more fish off his list every week! Way to go Tristan!

Florida Senate Passes Senate Bill 10

This week was an epic milestone in the fight for legislation to begin the process of restoring the Florida Everglades and the rest of Florida’s waterways. On Tuesday, May 2, the Florida Senate and House of Representatives passed Senate Bill 10, which paved the way for a much-needed reservoir south of Lake Okeechobee to help curb freshwater discharges into the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee Rivers, as well as sending much-needed freshwater south through the Everglades and into Florida Bay.

This victory was thanks to extensive efforts by groups such as Captains for Clean Water, and by fishing guides, anglers, homeowners and business owners from around the country who spoke out in support of saving these fragile ecosystems.

SeaDek has joined Captains for Clean Water in the fight, recently making the trip to the Florida State Capitol in Tallahassee to urge lawmakers to pass the bill. With this great success, we can celebrate, but will remain vigilant and active to continue pushing for action that will help restore Florida’s waterways to their former state.
