Now Valley Sea Kayaks finally have their new website up and running they can publicise the news we've been working on for a few months now.
Each composite sea kayak they sell in 2010 will come with a free copy of our DVD Sea Kayak with Gordon Brown. Precisely how they package the DVD into the kayaks they're working on now.
Pete was very supportive when he saw the rough cut of part of the DVD last May at the Scottish Sea Kayak Symposium on Skye. As a result of that conversation, I proposed this partnership to him and Jason.
I'm delighted with their appraisal of the DVD, "It is undoubtably the most exciting sea kayaking DVD release of 2010 and Valley is very proud to be associated with it".
Valley are one of Gordon's sponsors which is why we used Valley sea kayaks throughout the filming. (Except for Jim who liked his NDK Explorer too much to switch).
We have done a special pressing of the DVD for Valley to distinguish their promotional copies from the retail versions. Their copies are NTSC format, so they'll work on newer European DVD players (which play PAL and NTSC) and also on North American players (which tend to be NTSC only). The content, however, is the same.
