I had to order mine from Virginia to get the specific color I wanted.

Not sure where you are located but Mountain Sports in Arlington has some Jacksons, that is where I got my Mayfly a couple of weeks ago

On account of the pandemic a lot of people are looking for things to do...

people who had just been thinking about buying a kayak maybe now have time off and they've all been buying kayaks.

That could very well explain a lot of it! cheers

If they are being made in a foreign country there could also be a slow down of the supply chain resupplying them. hmmm

Didn’t even think of that, both make sense! I went ahead and paid for 2 not exactly what I wanted at academy, they had a couple restocked when I checked after work today just to get the gf’s kid on the water! I’m going to put his in the pool tomorrow so he can sit on it and get his balance down.

The stores are out of bikes, everyone is buying bikes to get outside, and I've seen a lot of new tents at the very crowded state parks.

Yep...the wife & daughter suddenly have an interest in kayaking....really, its just getting out of the house and into the outdoors....I'm loving it though...good to have them with me...

Took them to the Brazos this past weekend just for a day outing and the river was packed...mostly locals enjoying their own private river bank but people are definitely looking to get outdoors....makes my heart happy to see it

The new Scheel’s store in The Colony has a great selection. They had everything 15% off for Memorial Day. Mariner Sails in Dallas has a great selection of boats with plenty of stock in the warehouse.

I've had 2 Hobie PA14 360's ordered and paid for for over 3 weeks and still waiting. Word is Hobie was closed down for Wuhan Flu for almost 2 months but was back to work a couple weeks ago and finally shipping product but still trying to catch up to all the orders. I'm about to bust waiting! F China!!!! realmad

Many of the companies that make kayaks are in the far east. Importing anything from over there has become a stand in line proposition at customs. I purchased a fishing net from Amazon and it took me 2 1/2 months to get it. It was a good deal though. I paid $7.99 for it and the same one sells at Walmart for $29.00. But the waiting sucks. On a bright note though when all the Corona sportsmen get tired of the fun and sun not to mention have to go back to the daily grind, us retirees and hardcore sportsmen will be able to get hardly or never used outside sports equipment for a song on eBay or craigslist LOL!!!

HAHAHA.....I mean Awwwww……..

Watch a fishing show and you are entertained for an hour.

Go fishing and you are happy all day

My 10+ year old Manta Ray is getting a bit long of tooth. This autumn should be a good time to replace it when the noobs decide to bale on their barely-used yaks.

I was thinking you meant how $$ expensive kayaks have gotten.

yes, you can blame the kayak shortage on the Corona Virus. Kayak factories all over the world was forced to shut down for the last few months. Hobie, Old Town, Wilderness and all the American companies were just able to get back to their U.S. Factories and pump out product to fill the demand just a few short weeks ago. All that, and also factor in people at home with an extra $1200+ burning in their pockets and the need to get out and do something.
