Where can I buy a Salto

Is there a Eskimo dealer in Colorado? Where is the best place to pick up a Salto? Anyone on the front range creek in a Salto? How is it?

The salto is an awsome creeker! It is the only kayak that I have ever fallen in love with! I really dont want to paddle another boat.

There are about 150 new ones coming into the country at the end of the month. They are going to be 5 gallons larger (a.k.a more room for self support) with a new plastic! If you can get your hands on one you should deffentaly drop the cash!! I think the guys at confluence deal eskimo you should give them a call 303.433.3676 ask for john or don

good luck

I creek in a Salto. Love it. It has super stiff injection molded plastic (as opposed to the roto molded plastic of most american boats) which allows it to not have center pilars and gives you more room in the boat. It's fast, boofs well and has just enough edge. Unfortunately, there won't be any new ones available in the states until the end of May. Good luck finding a used one - most people who buy them don't sell them. If you do find a used one, stay away from red - bad batch. In the mean time while we wait for them to get here, you're welcome to come demo mine. Drop me a line.

Although I work for Jackson now... I have paddled a Salto for 5 years. I have yet to paddle the Rocker, but I have to say the Salto is the best creeker I have paddled yet. That being said... I have to sell mine as I am dying to paddle my demo rocker that get's here on Thursday... My Salto is in better than avg shape. Probably 20 days on it....

I have already told a close buddy that he can buy it from me, but if doesn't, I will let you know right away. It's yellow, fairly new late 04 (as it was a warranty boat from a Red one that cracked on me).

Send me a note when you get the chance and I will reply once my buddy gives me his answer.
