The World Class Paddlers of the Pacific Northwest have been their test paddlers, sharing their insights for improvements. Sterling creates design that bring improvements into the working characteristics of the kayak. He build a prototype - go through extensive test paddling - then refine the prototype - retest - refine - not stopping until he has reached his design goals.

This has created a totally unique opportunity to bring an unequaled level of excellence to our designs.
