Win a 3 day Kayak Fishing trip at Cuvier Island with Viking Kayaks & Orton Events
5:30PM 1st Sep 14

The winner of the Viking Kayaks 3 day kayak fishing at Cuvier Island prize is “Erica MacGregor” as nominated by “Tony Freeman” on September 4th at 4:30pm.

Congratulations Erica!! You will be joining the Viking Maniyaksaboard the Orton Events mothership trip in October to fish against a team of Australian anglers from Blade Kayak Fishing Journal. Thank you to everyone for participating, we had over 200 nominations! We will bring you updates from this epic trip as they come to light.  

Here is the story behind why Paddle Guy (Jason Milne) has drawn this prize with his daughter Amelia on Fathers Day... We had commissioned Jason to go along on this trip as camera man but due to other commitments he could not make it so in conjunction with Justin at Orton Events we have decided to offer up his spot as a prize for one very lucky winner. (we did question whats so important to turn down 3 days at Cuvier Island, honestly! ;-)) ... So we thought it fitting that Jason drew the winner with the help of little Amelia to draw the winner from her Profish Reload Kid Pod seat.
