In May we wrote an article about the new Jackson Kayak Kilroy. Since you guys enjoyed the article we decided to track down Damon Bungard to chat with him a bit more about the Jackson Kayak Kilroy. We talked about the popularity of kayak fishing, how one can get started, as well as the specifics of their new Kilroy Kayak. Enjoy!
From the Jackson Kayak website:
“Kayaks, Paddlers, and Paddling: This is what Jackson Kayak is about. We are a very altruistic/ideal focused group of people with quality, innovation, and “leaving the world a better place” as the core.
Jackson Kayak was born in 2003 with EJ and Tony Lunt as co-founders. We have assembled the best team in the world of people commited to the cause over the past 7 years and are relentless in the pursuit of quality and performance.
We are located in Sparta, TN in our 100,000 square foot facility, in a town of 8,000 people. We have about 120 employees and make products for whitewater, recreational paddling, touring, fishing, accessories, clothing, and even do custom manufacturing for playgrounds, other kayak companies, and more.
We make our plastic kayaks in sparta, and just about every component as well. Each year we become more self-sufficient in our manufacturing.
Come visit sometime, and take a tour!”
