From Ocean Kayak:
Old Town, Maine (July 10, 2017): The kayak pioneers at Ocean Kayak are proud to announce the launch of a revolutionary pedal-driven kayak that merges effortless transport, versatility, and proven pedal drive technology. Welcome Malibu Pedal, Ocean Kayak’s latest—a watercraft that raises the bar for effortless transport, ease of use, pedal performance, and hands-free fun! It’s fun, zippy, stable and offers turn-on-a-dime performance. Ocean Kayak Malibu Pedal is the most versatile pedal-driven kayak on the water, a boat that will accommodate any watery pursuit imaginable—from lunch-break fitness and easy vacation fun to blue-water adventures. Plus, it’s lightweight, easily car-topped by almost anyone, and has a footprint ideal for easy off-the-water storage. A kid’s jump seat makes family outings a breeze, and it even has plenty of room to bring your dog along for complete family adventure.
“The Malibu Pedal is the perfect choice for those looking for quick and easy family fun on the water,” said David Hadden, Brand Director for Johnson Outdoors Watercraft, Inc.
