I totally agree with ken's post. Riley only has a fun 1, but I would have gotten him the side kick instead if it were out 4 years ago.

Charlie turns 5 in April and your video has inspired me to get him a boat.

I think the Fun1 is a best choice for small kids (1-5 yrs) who are just starting out. It's definitely smaller and lighter than the SideKick and more manageable for the little ones. I expect to see a number hit the used market soon with the SideKick promotion.

Another good alternative for the little ones, newbies, or for those not yet comfortable with a hardshell on the river is an inflatable kayak. AIRE recently came out with a kid sized Inflatable Kayak that also retails for $499. (www.aire.com)

Are there any schools/classes in Salt Lake area that teaches the kids how to kayak?

Hey Marty, any chance Jackson would still honor this pricing? I finally scraped the funds together and my 6-year-old wants it bad!

Yeah, I sure would be interested in buying a kids boat if the pricing is still in effect. Would definitely make the difference between buying a new Side Kick or beating the bushes for a used one at the right price...

We did do an extension of the dates, but to be perfectly honest, the office is closed at the moment and I can't find the email to our dealers that gave the extension dates. My thought is that it expired at the end of May.
Check with your local dealer to verify please. If so, that is a price you won't see anytime soon. We are SUPER stoked to get families paddling more together as a unit, but this price is not sustainable for keeping the business going.
