Duct Tape Kayak Project – Schedule of Events for 2014

Posted by on April 7, 2014


Get ready for another exciting paddling season with the Duct Tape Kayak Project!!!

This has been a busy winter for the entire team with Brett deeply immersed in his BioChem studies and both Alex and I taking jobs in education! Our passion for teaching and learning has spawned an exciting new direction for the Duct Tape Kayak Project that we plan to highlight this season. We believe that building a Duct Tape Kayak has a lot of educational value and can serve as a memorable team-building activity for both children and adults. That’s why we decided to spend the winter designing a “Mini”-DTK (only 10ft long) that can be build as a kit! Be sure to follow our blog for updates on this new DTK throughout the Spring!

We also plan to continue to support our partner charity, Heroes on the Water, by donating 100% of the monies raised at our two fundraising events to help with their mission to assist in the rehabilitation our wounded veterans through guided kayak fishing excursions!!!

Here is our tentative schedule of events which will be updated throughout the season. Please feel free to leave a comment or drop us a line on our Facebook page if you know of any other events that may be a good fit for the Duct Tape Kayak now or in the future! -Kayak Dave

    Hilarious,I wanted to thank you for your work helping vets and as a disabled vet myself would like to see your program reach out to the vets here in Florida.

      Hi Dennis! Thanks and it’s our pleasure to help our vets in any way that we can! Definitely check out the website of our partner charity Heroes on the Water. They run excellent programs for vets like yourself and have a number of local chapter in the Florida area! Maybe someday the Duct Tape Kayak will make its way down the coast to some warmer waters too :) Take care and thanks for your service! -Kayak Dave
