Sorry if I came accross a little sour,
I have been watching  more than posting recently and noticed a few things that have not sat well with me.
I hate to thread jack, so I will start a seperate post on that.

As for Adventure sports,
They have been around for a long time and have serviced their customers very well with very few real complaints ...... I would Highly recomend them.
As for Headwaters, They also earn an A+ for sales, service and support of NCKA.
I would seggest you help the buisness that is in your area or the closest that carries the brand you prefer.

I bought my t13 from adventure sports and they were great, really great! But... When was the last time they put on a clinic or sponsored a tourney... If  I was gonna do it again I'd  buy from headwaters. They really support our club and sport as well as their customers.

They want to start clinics etc.

I called all over Cali. They were willing to deal a bit. Just picked up an AI from the Oakley store. Guy spent plenty of time with me putting it together and explaining. Two thumbs up.

The adventure guys are nice guys.  i've purchased three kayaks from them.  they have sponsored kayaks in the past and from what I understand are sponsoring a tourney this year....details will follow later. 

I had a long conversation with Carl from Adventure at the show.

Well... I did get my question answered. I came here to ask the question because I live in Portland Oregon and my local Native dealer stopped carrying The Native line. I found Adventure Sports on-line and assumed that they are  the closest/only dealer close too me. I have not even talked to them to see that they have what I want. I did find something that do like very much a company that is not pushy and is willing to help me out. I will contact them both and find the best deal for me and then support them.
 Thanks for pointing out that I have more than one option

I purchased a Malibou 2XL from them about two/three years ago. Good price and was ready to roll when I drove down to pick it up.

Any new opinions about Adventure Sports/Kayak City?

They have a 2011 T13 I'm interested-in (because it's OK yellow) but it's a bit over-priced and I'm not getting a deal nor a NCKA discount talking to them over the phone.

Found that disappointing since Sacramento is at minimum, a two day trip for me just to try to haggle.

Probably get a better deal buying from a member.  Scan classified section or post what you are looking for.

Thank you, Duane.  I have been scanning NCKA and NWKA classifieds for about a month and the boat hasn't popped-up.  A NWKA member suggested I call Adventure Sports/Kayak City and check what they have on-hand.

(I've also checked CL listings twice a day every day.  Those darned T13's were either sold before I started looking, or they're for 2017's and I don't want a 2017)
