Valley Smiles in the Sunshine State

Graham Dredge has sent us down a bunch of pics from a recent day out on the water around the Sunshine Coast, where some of the brighter Valley boats were on display. Geoff Pender (above left) & Shane Reeve (left) are shown in their Tangerine/Grey Nordkapp, & Traffic Yellow/Grey Nordkapp LV respectively, lighting up the waterways of the coast...!
Brett Dominick has a 'very red' Nordkapp LV with a contrast yellow trim, excellent high vis. colour-ways for & venturing around the busy waterways and for expeditioning. I actually had to dull this pic down a few shades to prevent any glare injuries from unsuspecting readers....
Geoff's boat is a work of art. Custom built by the Valley gurus, it is a full carbon kevlar layup in a custom high vis colour, with a contrasting grey trim & keel strip. All Valley boats are built to last, but this one is definitely something special and Geoff is looking forward to learning the nuances of the new Nordkapp design over coming months.
And... a late entry from Gary Tischer in his new Nordkapp LV. Gary says 'Maybe we like yellow boats because they are like huge bananas .... and what Qlder doesn't love bananas?'

We'll be finalising our next shipments from Valley & Rockpool over the next 2-3 weeks for an early Spring delivery. If you'd like a custom built boat made in your own colours & with any extras that don't come as standard, please give us a yell some time in June.
Thanks Dredgy for the pics, and make sure you're wearing your sunnies if you run into any of these dudes on the water around Brissie....
The Queensland Sea Kayak Club has just launched a Youtube channel which you can see by cliking on the graphic below. It's worth a look for some of the beautiful paddling destinations these folks get out to.
