Just saw this post and the negative comments about adventure sports in Sac. Here is my experience w/ them. A couple years ago, I bought my 07 outback from these guys at the ISE in San Mateo.  For $1650 + tax, I received the new 07 outback, w/ fishing package,(wheels, anchor, tackle boxes and bag).  They also threw in a free extrasport pfd.  AND! They threw in a free Brand New Tarpon 100 with 2 installed flushmounts and a mounted scotty rodholder!  I sold the tarpon on craigs list for $550.  In my opinion the deal was more than fair and I have no problem recommending them.  In fact, I did.  Ride123 got the same deal the very next day!  Anyway thats my 2 cents.

I'm hoping to get my next yak, a Hobie OB, at the '09 ISE as I remember seeing some pretty good deals last year.  I can only hope to stumble across something as good as yours Tok.

Hello all, I am brand new to the group and kayak fishing...I researched and tested various kayaks for several months before settling on the ocean kayak trident prowler 11 angler.  As it was winter and the holiday season was near, I was in no hurry to make a purchase and even considered buying a used yak off craigslist.  Just after xmas, I saw an ad from Adventure Sports in Sacto listing the kayak for $550 and noted that it was a blem.  I called the very next day and the sales person was very helpful.  He said the yak was on the floor and that the only blem was a small defect in the sticker.  I bought the yak sight unseen and drove up the following weekend.  I examing the sticker and could not see any defect or any other defect for that matter.  The sales person was very helpful and I took my new yak home being very satisfied.  I like to give credit where credit is due and thought I would weigh in on my experience.  For info, I took the yak out with my son and his new frenzy last Sunday at Shadow Cliffs.  We stuck to just cruzin the lake as it was his first time and had a great time.  We getting ready for the next trip, when we fully plan to bring home some fish!

Yakdad,
I also got my yak from Adventure Sports (kayak city), and also had a very good experience.  I got a good deal on an angler Tarpon 120 with the new hatches.  They also gave me a free paddle upgrade. I have been recomending them to my friends and have gone back several times for gear.   Helpful staff and a great selection of yaks, I couldn't complain.   After reading some previous posts I get the impression that they are getting a bad wrap, just my opinion.

Keep it simple.

They got a bad rap because they were sleezebags.

Glad to hear that maybe they have turned over a new leaf.

I think that they have been making changes for the better.  I went into Adventure over the weekend and the owner said that they had to part ways with one of their main guys there.  He said that there was an issue with a customer that was mistreated so he had to give the guy the boot! Customers first. My experiences have been good, but I glad to hear they are willing to take a stand to ensure good customer service.

http://www.clavey.com/.. These local Sonoma County guys are tops. They helped with almost all the big donations last year at Albion.  Small store that really caters to the individuals needs. These guys arent a large corporation, just a hometown feel good place.

Yeah last year I stopped by on my way to Albion. Didn't need any gear so I got a hat and shirt. Told them thanks for the support...On a side note I wore the shirt on my flight to Houston I wore the shirt proudly. Nice to help the little guy.

I always seem to get a good deal at Aquan in San Carlos.  Last year I got 25% off a brand new OK Trident 13. 

During the Christmas week of 2010.  I stopped by there with what I thought was a fix budget.  Well I ended up going over.  (Somehow feel under my wife's radar) I was given 15% off  Kokatat Tempest pants and a complete Thule Rack system $100 below retail, installation included.
