WYNIT Inc to distribute Point 65 Kayaks Sweden

The kayak business has brought me to the most unexpected corners of the world and I have recently found myself in the land locked metropolis of Syracuse NY, home to Syracuse University, a major research university and the world famous Dinosaur Bar-B-Que Restaurant, co owned by billionair George Soros.

The reason for my travels there is our recent partnership with WYNIT Inc, one of North America’s leading outdoor distributors. And I'm happy to announce that WYNIT is launching a new division dedicated to paddle sports and enters the industry by becoming the exclusive US distributor for Point 65!

Congratulations on your US venture with WYNIT. It is very inspiring to have Point 65 expand further into the US market and share its innovations and Mr. Foster's designs. That paddle looks amazing! I've been following Point 65 for some time now and have always been interested in representing the brand in the Midwest and Great Lakes territory where I currently Rep other products. Mr. Foster's "Kayak Surfing" book got me into kayaking waves, so I owe a lot of brilliant times to him.

Thanks for the great info from the blog and keep the posts coming.

Health and happiness,
