Arcata CA- Kokatat is pleased to announce Sean Morley has accepted the position as Kokatat Sales Representative for the western territory. This territory includes California, Nevada and Arizona. Sean moved from the UK to California in 2006 and founded River and Ocean LLC, a Sales and Customer Service Agency within the water sports industry representing such established lines as Valley Sea Kayaks and now Kokatat Watersports Wear. He is based out of the California Bay Area where he lives with his wife and daughter and continues to work as a freelance kayak instructor.
Sean began kayaking at the age of ten, often paddling alone, exploring the relatively sheltered waters of St Austell Bay on the south coast of Cornwall, England. “I used to wonder what lay around the corner and dreamt of continuing around the next headland until eventually I had paddled all the way around Great Britain” explains Sean. In 2004, Sean completed the first solo circumnavigation of the UK and Ireland (including all inhabited islands), 4,500 miles in 183 days.
Other accomplishments include British Canoe Union 4 star award and 5 star trainee. Sean is also an avid surf kayaker winning the Masters High Performance category and placing 2nd in the Open High Performance category at the 2007 World Championships as a member of the USA West Coast Surf Kayak team. After more than 30 years of kayaking Sean's passion for the sport is undiminished. Sean says, “I love nothing more than to share this enthusiasm with fellow paddlers, be they novices or experts.”
“I am truly delighted to be the new Kokatat outside sales representative in California, Nevada and Arizona. As a member of Team Kokatat I have been testing the gear in some extreme conditions and I know that it performs superbly. Joining the Kokatat ‘family' and having the opportunity to work for a company that makes such innovative, quality products and that operates with the highest standards of integrity is a dream come true” says Sean Morley.
