Launch of the Expedition Kayaks Audax

Postby Mark Sundin » Thu Feb 16, 2017 11:34 am

It's taken 10 years, but here is our first ever commercial post on this venerable forum, hope to see you there on the night to help us celebrate!

The Launch of the Expedition Kayaks Audax.

After two years of prototyping, testing, more prototyping, more testing, and then finally the nuts & bolts of getting the mould made to the high standard we expect, we are proud & excited to invite you our friends and supporters to the launch of our own locally manufactured sea kayak, the Audax.
We're throwing a party to celebrate next Friday night, February 24, at the Kiss the Barista cafe, under the Georges River Sailing Club, Sanoni Ave, Sandringham, in Sydney.

We'll be telling the tale of the Audax, how it came to be, and will have our first two boats there for you to inspect.

There is a gift for our first 50 guests, and the night is fully catered with Tony's great Kiss the Barista food & drinks. Kick off is 7.00pm, for 7.30pm formalities.

Numbers are limited, so please RSVP to mark@expeditionkayaks.com.

A sincere thanks to everyone who has helped us get to this point; we look forward to celebrating this exciting leap forward!

See you there on the night!

Rob & Mark.

Wow, there are plenty of kayaks on the market already so going to be interesting to see what this model brings to the table to differentiate.

I assume no further information on the boat will be released until after the launch?

Good for you Mark.
You have probably paddled more top end kayaks than most in real sea conditions so its going to be interesting to see what you have come up with.
I hope it all goes well for you.
Cheers Tim

Hi Mark and Rob,

I have looked at the pics and specs for your new boat, the Audax.
From what I can see, it looks awesome. If it paddles the same it will be a great option for new boat buyers to consider.
As a true believer in the benefits of a plumb bow design and the concept of a modern fast sea kayak, I think this represents a great addition to the line up of such boats.
Being Australian designed and made is also a bonus.
I wish you all the luck and success with this kayak and look forward to sitting my backside in one in the future,

Matt
