Wavesport

The Habitat is Wavesport's new creekboat and comes with some very handy amenities. First is a molded step-out structural pilar for the bow. An integrated backpack system is also in the works which is looking pretty good for those arduous hike-in creeks.

Camaro

Camaro from Austria will from now on deliver their wetsuits completely seamless instead of with flatlockes seams. As a result the seams are completely waterproof and even more stretchy. The kayaking wetsuits are preformed for the seated paddling position and have integrated reinforcement paddings on the knees.

Camaro's new dry tops and suits use extra flexible materials and waterproof magnetic zippers.
