The Vero Beach Boat Show is coming up at Riverside Park on April 12-13.

My dealer-- Orchid Island Bikes and Kayaks, will have their full-blown inventory set up on display and will have the corporate field reps for some of the big brands, including Hobie, set up on the water for demos on both days (weather permitting). I'll be doing demos on Kayak Angling 101 on both days (i think), and the world famous Palm Beach Pete will be doing seminars on offshore kayak fishing (i believe). all this great stuff is free free free.

Great opportunity to take all the big brands and famous models for a ride right there, side by side.

ALSO-- anyone who purchases a Hobie Kayak during the boat show, will receive a 1/2 day kayak fishing charter with www.kayakfishingvero.com . how about that for a 'rebate'!.

for details on the boat show, times, seminar times and what all will be there with respect to kayaks, call Orchid Island Bikes and Kayaks at (772) 299-1286

    DOA event is indeed Saturday. Good fortune for you guys fishing it, as I'll be at the boat show instead.
    Hopefully those who are interested in the show or demoing a kayak or the charter offer, can still make time to come on out

    bump bump.

    i know there are other things going on this weekend as far as tournaments and such, but for those who don't tournament fish and/or want to do some demos on that new spring kayak purchase, this is the weekend to do it. and don't forget, if you buy a Hobie at the boat show, you will also receive a 1/2 day charter.

    Unfortunately Palm Beach Pete's day job will keep him away from this year's boat show. Do come out though and meet Drew (Uno Mas) and Christina Weber, a very accomplished angler and Hobie Regional Pro Team member. Check out her bio at http://www.christinaweberfishing.com/ Drew's at http://www.grassflatsmafia.com/ The weather looks like it will cooperate for the demos, so come on out and test the latest in kayaks. Looking forward to seeing you there!

    Sorry that I will miss it. always a great show. Christina and Drew are some of the best. Worth the trip over and you get to water test a lot of great kayaks.
