First, let it be said that I truly like the Jacksons, their employees, and their team.
Second, sorry, I thought my signature made it clear which companies I have connections with. I paddle for team Riot and for Mion Footwear. I am featured in Effort Inc. media productions such as Night of the Living Donkey.
The reason I can talk about Jackson boats is that I used to paddle for them on their regional team. This isn't bitterness and it isn't some sort of an attack in order to make people buy Riots. I just had to be honest about my experience as a team member and my brother's experience as a customer. There is a certain point where, despite the fact that I used to paddle for them and despite the fact that I like them, I have to be honest.
I left their team because of problems with their plastic and outfitting, not because of the design.
