Sit on Top Kayaks !

We now have in stock a great selection of new "sit on top" kayaks (Jackson Rivieras new for 2012) for individuals wishing to expand their paddling skills on The James River. These versitile craft are very stable and have open cockpits eliminating the need to learn an Eskimo roll as is necessary for those kayaks having closed cockpits! Run your own ship! Our sit on top kayaks offer you all the tricks of genuine whitewater kayaking with the freedom of an open top boat. These easy to learn and handle "yaks" will have you running circles around your friends in their other crafts.
Sit on top kayaks also eliminate the need to put a third person in a canoe when you have an odd number of people in your group! Just think, instead of having to sit in the muddy, sloppy bottom of a canoe that is being paddled by a couple of novices running into every rock in the river, you can move downstream at your own pace. Paddling the kayak into areas inaccessable to a canoe, you may find yourself gazing at hidden deer, wild turkey, and even geese and ducks that canoeists cannot see. And imagine surfing the waves in mild class two water while canoeists merely slip by without having the teamwork to do an "eddy turn" or a "peelout" right in the middle of the rapids! 
Make sure to make your reservations for your sit on top kayak soon! We have many in stock for this year and they are sure to be a very popular item.
