Wave Sport athletes recently nailed down four of the top six positions at the final qualifying kayak competition for the National Championships in Wisconsin. All were paddling Wave Sport's new playboat, the Transformer, which is being billed as the first kayak to feature interchangeable rubber tips, allowing paddlers to adjust their boat for different conditions. Eric "EJ" Jackson, designer of the Transformer and the current Men's World Freestyle Kayaking Champion, took first in the Men's K1 in the T2, while Jay Kincaid paddled the Transformer T3 into third place. In the K1 Women's competition, Wave Sport paddler Brooke Winger came in first in the T2 and Lisa Beckstad took third in the T1. Prior to the Wisconsin competition, Jackson and fellow Wave Sport athlete Jessie Stone gave their time at a weeklong whitewater kayaking camp for Boys and Girls' Harbor kids in New York City.
