For the past 3 years, I have been a part of the Malibu Kayaks pro-staff. At the end of the month, I will be officially leaving the team and will no longer be affiliated with the brand. I relayed these feelings, as well as my frustrations regarding their treatment of the pro-staff, to MK back in July. However, I told them I would honor the remainder of my current contract, which legally ends at the end of 2014.
Unfortunatley, MK has repeatedly failed to deliver on promises, including not honoring contracts and giving the team no support in any way shape or form. The list of unethical practices goes on, many of which are known throughout the kayak fishing community, so they will not be listed here.
Sadly, the Malibu Kayaks I joined in 2012 is not the MK of today. Now, it is on to bigger and better things. Tight lines!
