Nissan TITAN, Professional Kayaker Team Up
Whitewater kayaker and professional angler Eric Jackson just teamed up with the Nissan TITAN. The auto manufacturer announced the partnership in mid-July at the International Convention of Allied Sport Fishing Trades.
“It’s a rare occasion when Eric Jackson is not on a lake fishing or navigating the most treacherous whitewater rapids,” said Fred Diaz division vice president and general manager, North America Trucks and Light Commercial Vehicles, Nissan North America, Inc. “We’re proud that he has selected TITAN XD as his wheels of choice.”
The partnership provides Jackson with a brand-new TITAN XD for all his professional appearances and for hauling his various modes of on-water rides.
Jackson has won more than 100 international freestyle kayaking events—the most of any competitor in history. He was a member of the USA Kayak Team from 1989 to 2015. He also recently qualified for the 2017 team this past month.
He founded Jackson Kayak in 2003, and the company has become one of the leading manufacturers of competition and recreational kayaks in the world. Jackson recently became a professional fisherman, joining the Fishing League Worldwide, and fulfilling a childhood dream.
The TITAN is powered by a burly Cummins 5.0-liter V8 turbo diesel engine and is backed by Nissan’s enviable warranty program.
