newwebsiteThe 2009 season is about to begin, and here at Perception we’re more excited than ever. We’ll be unveiling our all new Tribute 10.0 and 14.0 models, and the Tribute 12.0 SL, which just received Best Adventure Gear of the Year by National Geographic.

Aside from our new kayak models, we’ll also be relaunching an all-new website with more tools than ever before to help choose the right kayak and get the most out of it. We’ve even added a community page so you can share pictures of your adventures with other Perception owners and fans.

Until then, check out some preview information here on our news blog. Before you know it the weather will be warming up and the wide open will once again be calling. We’ll be there waiting for you.

New website to launch in March 2009.
