Just curious how many of you guys would own and/or paddel a pink kayak? I don't have a problem with pink personaly and looking at buying a new stomper 90 in pink. The reason i'm asking is for resale purposes. I don't give a shit what other people think about me in a pink kayak (I'm happyly married with a son). I'm just a little worried about resale value and how hard it would be to resale it for the sole reason because it's pink?

"you go girl! sport the pink.."

Givin all the choices out there, I would NOT buy a pink boat again. I bought a pink pocket rocket a few years back for my gf and everywhere I went some chick was asking if she could buy it. Then when it came time to sell, I couldn't unload the thing. I ended up selling for about $100 less than I could have if it were say blue. Chicks are all talk. anyway enjoy.

Pink's legit, and totally underrated. But the Stomper comes in way more rad colors anyway!! Blue knight, green hornet??? Baller....

I had this same experience. Bought a 2010 Hero in a pink, black, and white mix for my wife. Hard to sell and I lost money on it when it finally did go.

Got a pink Superstar named the Pink Torpedo (Spinal Tap? Yes, I think so.)
I'm sure resale will take a bit of a hit but whatever. It was an odd deal that gave me the option of either purple or pink so i went for the pink.

The Stomper is so good you're not going to ever want to sell it - GO WITH THE PINK!

I paddle Natalie's old pink Nemsis. I don't care if the boat is baby diarrhea green, if the price is right, I'll buy it.

I've seen red rafts (Hyside) turn pink after years of UV exposure. I call it "The Stinky Pinky" to piss the owner off. I'd stay away from them for this reason.

I just ordered my second purple Aire Force IK. The first one got a ton of compliments and helped friends spot me on the road or river.

Of course it's not pink. That would be gay. ;)
