Kayak industry veteran Woody Callaway, already in the paddlesports arena for 22 years, has joined the Liquidlogic team after a year's sabbatical from the industry. "For many years, Callaway was considered by many to be the heart and soul of Perception's whitewater boat efforts. Having Callaway at Liquidlogic makes us complete," says company co-founder Steve Jordan. "Woody's dynamic personality and overall presence in paddling brings us closer to creating the most focused and elite kayak manufacturing team in the industry."
