LVM Kayaks

Just saw this press release on the LVM blog:

LVM to launch kayak line

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 07/13/09: LVM Kayaks | LVM Lunch Video Magazine

With all the talk about what creekboat to buy and durability issues it might be worth waiting around to see what Grace has up his sleeve. If they can build a boat out of old-school-quality plastic I'll place my pre-order today.

Hopefully this results in a round of innovation in creekboats...this line in particularly has me feeling hopeful:

"LVM kayaks is producing these boats with new production techniques which Grace reports will change the way the industry looks at kayak production. This process involves a new molding technique which gives LVM the ability to produce and distribute new and innovative designs almost monthly."

Very funny - like something out of the Onion but for kayakers.

Wait...did I fall for an elaborate joke? It appears legit but you're probably more in the know than I am.

I'm not sure but it really seems like a good joke. The statement “We feel there is a need for more choices for consumers” seems like industry satire.

Many other statements seem humrously dubious to me, but it's good shit....

The again... I don't really know.

Given the rate I go through creekboats, signing up for the LVM creekboat subscription and having one delivered to my door every month sounds about like the right timing.

I mean, if anyone understands the needs of creekboaters it's the LVM crew.

Yeah it is pretty packed with buzzwords but isn't that whole point of PR? I'm curious to find out if this is for real or not.

On the other hand it's a sad commentary on the state of the kayak industry when people are laughing at the idea of a company trying to do something innovative.
