The new valley surf kayak has been announced, the Valley Nemesis. Valley has been whispering about creating an IC Boat for some time. I heard through Valley’s US West Coast Rep Rob Avery’s Facebook wall of all places! It looks like a really hot IC boat. If you haven’t friended Rob on Facebook yet, he’s been a steady stream of news from Valley over the last few months. Though Peter Orton has also been posting news on Paddling.net for sea kayaks. I would love to link to the new product page on Valley’s Surf Kayaking website, but alas, it is still down.
I honestly don’t want to pick on Valley, but I would love to see the new website up, they’ve got a redesigned Rush and a new IC boat!
This could be a great contender for the Mega Bullitt, and some of the new Watertech IC boats, though with a finbox option it could be a really hot choice for us Great Lakes surfers looking for a big wave gun for very windy steep days.
If you’re not even sure what an IC boat is… Check out the Go Kayak Now surf kayak basics page.
