Bonafide RS117 Launch Party

The Bonafide RS117 Launch Party will be held on September 30th from 12:00-4:00 pm at ?Reformation Brewery’s new facility in Woodstock, Georgia. Westbrook Supply Co., Kioti Outdoors, Burch’s Tackle Shop, Outside World Outfitters, Bonafide Kayaks, and Reformation Brewery are teaming up to bring you the launch party for our new sub $1,000 premium fishing kayak, the RS117. Reformation Brewery makes timeless, inspiring craft beer for the reformer in everyone. Well made beer connects people to each other and to moments in time. Reformation Brewery is built on this concept of enjoying well-made beer as a gift and sharing that gift with others. They have built a brand new research and development brewery in downtown Woodstock to celebrate these moments, and they will be the host for this event.

This will be a family friendly event with award winning BBQ and all the fixings that go with it, quality craft beer, live music from River Wolf Music, and games for all ages. Paddle4Tomorrow will be hosting an online raffle and drawing names live at the event to giveaway a brand new RS117. Paddle4Tomorrow is a non-profit dedicated to promoting and sustaining healthy relationships between diverse groups of children and the planet. They accomplish that mission by supporting and creating programs that strengthen their understanding of the outdoors and deepen their appreciation and respect for each other.

Pro team members from Bonafide, YakAttack, and Kayak Bass Fishing will be on site for meet and greets as well as just to talk fishing with old friends and new. Now, more paddlers than ever can rise up to a premium, authentically designed, American made kayak. The RS117 (RiSe) is the ultimate paddlecraft for the everyday angler or casual paddler looking for uncompromised stability and serious performance at a significant value.
