On The Tar River with Tar River Paddlesports

Tar River Paddlesports has been a NuCanoe dealer since 2008.  Frank Bandy placed his initial order without ever seeing the boats in person.  He could tell it was what he wanted and figured there would be many others like him. 

On this October afternoon, Frank and Team NuCanoe member Brannon Roberts took the Frontier 12 on the water.  Frank had two comments:  "This won't be available for a longtime" and "this is the boat for me now".  Brannon was so excited he went home and sold his NuCanoe 12 to clear out space and free up funds to be one of the first Frontier 12 owners come January.

After an hour of paddling around and a little fishing, Frank & Brannon decided to put the Frontier to the test.
