Ryan didnt ask me to write this nor did I make him aware that I am. We all know the boats he make are very fast and well built, yet his workmanship on repairs is the best I have ever seen. And at one time I was a kayak dealer and had numerous boats repaired through the years.

Anyway I ordered a new Nelo K1 last year and it came in with shipping damage from Portugal. My dealer Global Paddlesports out of Houston gave me the option of my money back, or order another one. I opted for buying it damaged upon him dealing with Nelo and shipping company. After recently acquiring the boat I took it to Ryan for repairs. The front of it had been cracked to the point it had open holes in it. Not only is the repair the best I have ever seen, he also put a front & rear (pic attached) design on it. And it greatly enhanced the looks !
Thanks again Ryan! Job well done.

Very nice boat!  I couldn't agree more regarding the work (magic) that Ryan performs.
We took him a starz boat that had seen better days and he made the proverbial silk purse out of that sows ear Smiley

A G R E E D ! ! !

Ryan has been my go-to boat repairman since 2010...he continually does professional repairs on every boat that I bring to him or refer his way...best perk is that he only lives a mile from me so the trip is easy!
