|Selling Kayaks, Paddleboards & Fishing Gear on Anna Maria Island
November 12, 2013: Selling outdoor gear was a natural start-up business one year ago for Steve Traves, a retired outdoor photographer. Prior to his photography career, he worked with the founders of the Eagle Creek travel gear company and is an avid fisherman and kayaker. An Anna Maria Islander since 1986, he chose the island’s north end as the ideal location to launch AMI Outfitters Coastal Gear & Apparel.
Traves says he’s happy to bring his fishing and kayaking expertise to Pine Avenue. “Our sales of kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, fly-fishing gear and menswear have been growing steadily throughout our first twelve months,” Traves says. He attributes his success to a combination of premium brands and highly-personalized service in outfitting his customers.
Traves is inviting the public to celebrate AMI Outfitters’ first anniversary on Friday November 15th from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm at 505 Pine Avenue. His neighbors at Bob Brown Art gallery and Hometown Desserts bakery are joining the celebration, with refreshments catered by The Waterfront Restaurant.
