Re: Condition of new SOT Kayaks...is this the norm?

In the end I got my money back. No apology, no credit towards something else. Would not shop at Up and Useless again.

Re: Condition of new SOT Kayaks...is this the norm?

Two lines out of 19 lines refer to the color scheme. I don't see what's not objective. If you read the start of the thread it highlights poor customer care from the start. Taking my money, yet forgetting to place the order. This is just a small snap shot of their total incompetent workings.

Re: Condition of new SOT Kayaks...is this the norm?

If it was a warranty issue, they would repair or replace. They did neither. Up & Useless said the 120’s all leak. This makes it a manufacturing issue. I think you are missing the point, a year of ferrying my boat back and forth, missed trips, countless Emails and telephone calls. Listening to excuse...

I'm in a similar situation to you back in 2012 with your original post. I live Caerphilly way. Most Sea Kayakers seem further West. What did you end up doing?

Re: Sea Kayaking Clubs in South Wales?

I joined the Cymru Kayak FB page. Most advice was to join a club. Contacted two local clubs, one did not do Sea Kayak, despite advertising that they did and the other never replied. Had one offer for a try on a Sea Kayak, but sadly when I tried to take up the offer, his roof rack was not working.......

Sea Kayaking Clubs in South Wales?

Hi, I read advice on here and other forums and FB to join a Kayak Club and try as many different kayaks as possible. I currently have a Wilderness Tarpon 120, which is a great workhorse. But I would like to experience how different a Sea Kayak is. Are their any clubs in the South Wales area, closer...
