When do you plan to order kayaks for sale?

I want to buy a wilderness systems aspire 100 or Dagger Axis 10.5 kayak.

They are available online from so covid and supply chains do not seem to be a problem.

When I called your Phoenix store the only way to buy one was to pay a $160 shipping cost.

Do you plan to stock either or both of these kayaks and if so when ?

Thanks, Jim

@Breezin thanks for reaching out about our availability in kayaks. Unfortunately, our stock levels in most boats continue to be affected by very quick sell-through (when we have them in stock) and vendor and supply chain constraints (as we try to get more). Likely our Phoenix store was considering placing a special order for you directly with Wilderness Systems or Dagger - this would incur the shipping charge because the boat would be shipping from the vendor directly to our store; in addition, a special order can be affected by supply availability from our vendors.

Our buyers continue to work to have more boats available both on and in our stores; we hope to be in-stock more consistently towards the end of the year and into early 2021. We apologize for these inventory constraints.

On the plus side, the used market is going to be amazing in a year or two!
