Corran Addison back at Riot

Well I never thought I would see the day, but it looks like Jeff Riviest (the original owner of Riot) has sold the brand to someone else - Kayak Distribution who in turn has bought Corran's SUP business. Lets hope they are now making their boats in Canada again, and not cheaply in China, so we can see the return of an awesome brand! Will they remake the Glide and Disco to celebrate his return?!

Fisher gets relegated to the side lines, Corran gets an open door! Chances of either of them coming to paddle the upper Dart any time soon? De Nada!

Only the Disco.... the Glide is awesome and no one should be embarrassed to still have one. I'm not.

I got the glide in the first UK shipment and took it down everything! The idea of taking it down a high level mellte now is not one that lasts long! I will never ever sell it - it still punishes me on every outing it gets!
....and the Disco is my girlfriends and is a bit special.....its CARBON!
