An invitation to the skeptics
Posted by: anton_willis on Mar-30-13 2:12 AM (EST)
We are a few weeks behind on our first delivery- a short run of 50 boats to our Kickstarter backers. Other than that, we're on schedule for the rest of our pre-orders. The other Kickstarter batches were originally scheduled to ship between May and June, based on the queue of orders; post-Kickstarter pre-orders will ship after those are fulfilled, which is now July. We've been fully transparent with our anticipated delivery dates, and while we certainly wish we could get the first 50 out this month, a few weeks of delay doesn't mean we're in dire trouble as a company. We've done the first production assemblies and will be scaling up to full capacity starting April 8th.
We fully understand the skepticism towards new and unproven products- and we'll be offering many chances to test out an Oru Kayak around the country this spring and summer. We welcome all skeptics and naysayers- we've already converted some skeptics who've tried it (including our new head of sales, who was once a sponsored athlete for a major kayak brand). And if you try one and don't like it, we'll respectfully listen, and use your feedback to make the product better.
