Eric Jackson is an obsessed outdoor adventurer. His whitewater kayaking has taken him to 6 continents and over 100 countries. Averaging over 8 months/year traveling from one kayaking destination to another for the past 35 years, you can find him just about anywhere, but sitting still. His accolades include being an Olympian, a 4 Time World Freestyle Kayak Champion, Extreme Racing Champion, International Hall of Fame inductee, and founder of Jackson Kayak. Over the past 6 years Eric’s dedication and passion for fishing has shown another area that he excels. He is the current Pan Am Champion for Kayak fishing, and is the USA Team Captain. He also is a touring Pro on the FLW Tour and a recent invitee to fish the inaugural season of the 2021 National Professional Fishing League season. Eric’s desire to always have the best equipment has kept him busy designing and manufacturing kayaks. In 2020 he started a new brand of fishing kayaks, called Apex Watercraft, which makes ultra lightweight carbon fiber fishing kayaks. In all of his exploits, you can find him wearing his trusted ProTrek watch by Casio. He feels that a watch must always work, and should provide the information an outdoorsman, off the grid, and “out there” as he calls it, would need. Quad Sensors, and 100% dependability are two factors that keeps him in ProTrek.
