These are actual testimonials by real customers who kayak for recreation and the ultimate sport of fishing. 7/25/17 - Updated 

Excellent product that by far outshines any similar product on market. There a few selling similar kayak engines, but not nearly the quality build as these are. No corners cut with his knowledge of the product and Matt stands behind the product with fantastic customer support and experience to make it happen. He is always available.”

“When I first bought this motor I never imagined how far it would take me, literally! I loved kayak fishing but honestly hated paddling so much and when I found out about kayakbuddys I pulled the trigger almost immediately. I mainly do offshore kayak fishing and this has been a life save multiple times. I can't imagine paddling anymore and would never go back. Matt is extremely knowledgeable and will answer all questions you have and has truly built an amazing product.”

“With all the products on the market, Matt really is honest about what is the right choice regardless if he makes the sale or not. Any questions I asked of him he was knowledgeable and courteous. I will certainly do business again and will keep checking back for that muffler system. He was right about the 4 strokes being reliable and not to loud like a 2 stroke. I made a great choice.”

“Kayak Buddys GX35 series kayak engine setup makes it easy to get to home after a long day. My age told me to motorize and the electric complication was not for me. All my fishing buddy's disagreed, until I towed them back in one afternoon as the current and wind changed. Made me a believer, since we probably should not have been out there anyway on that day.”

“The customer support and knowledge to make the right choice is invaluable. I never would have thought to put an engine on a kayak until I ran across the Kayak Buddys website. He is not first, or the last to get more out of a product, but Kayak Buddys is honest and they know the lightweight gas platform better than of the other companies selling similar kayak engines. I had shipping damage and it was handled promptly with great customer service. I love the setup. Thanks Matt

" I purchased a Honda GX35 setup from Matt at Kayak Buddys well over a year ago and I didn't exactly keep it clean because I used it so much and it sat mounted on the kayak and left on the trailer for daily use as I am a kayak fishing guide. Matt was kind enough to allow me to send the kayak leg back to service and replace the throttle cable and handle. He only charged me for the part and the leg looks and performs like brand new once again. Thanks sooooo much Matt. You are passionate about helping people.
