If I was Wavesport I would have had him sign an anti-competition clause. That boat, as well as the Fun series was designed while he was at Wavesport. I've known him since he was paddling a XXX. It surprised me how he went about the whole ordeal. But, I can see his side as well. It's just one of the reasons why I don't paddle a Jackson boat.
Look at Astral and Patagonia. The owner left Patagonia and couldn't compete for 5 years. Once that 5 year period was over, he started the best PFD company in the US.
