Fluid Kayaks?

Anyone know where to get fluid kayaks? Their website says they are out of stock of everything and their dealers websites suck.

I don't think you can find them in the States right now.

I'm still so pissed at them. Guess the US market was too hard for them or some lame excuse.

All I know is I bought two of their boats and was planning on buying 3 more--then they bailed.

Yea, just spoke to a dealer and he told me they are long gone. Took their warehouse back to south africa and dont do buisiness here at all really. So whatever you find is basically all that's left. Sad too because he said he just got rid of a bazooka which is exactly what I was looking for.

Hey everyone,
this is Natalie and was on the team for a while. Fluid was struggling for a number of years and they have pulled out of the North American market and are now focusing on recreation boats and whitewater boats in South Africa.

A number of moves and changes in the last three years made it pretty tough for them to make it work financially. IT is too bad because just this last year I felt that they were starting to get a small piece of the market. It is still possible to get Fluid boats, but a shop or someone would have to order an entire shipping container. I could find out how many boats this is if someone is seriously interested in banding together.

Really we need more paddlers to be able to keep the diversity of boat companies alive (wavesport is now no longer making whitewater boats as well). Keep teaching new people to paddle!

This is what happens when you pay your team athletes way to much $$$$$

I blame Fluids demise on Leif and Gnat.

I think we ordered 44 fluid Donsa's and that filled a container I believe so bazooka's and playboats combine might be about the same in one container.

I was told by someone at fluid that they should be selling whitewater boats in the states again sometime in 2016.
