Welcome to all the great Viking Kayaks customers participating in the Viking Invitational event on Friday 4th October. Prizes consist of over $2000 cash, Lowrance Elite 5 sounder and more! The idea of this fun competition is to have an opportunity to meet up with other Viking paddlers over a few beers and a BBQ, and also enjoy a great pre-fish for the Gold Rush Kayak Fishing Challenge in Coromandel happening over that weekend.


We’re holding this fun event based at Anglers Lodge at Amodeo Bay
