New Wave was started and owned by John Schreiner. John started out building kayaks part-time in people's garages. When he went full time into kayak stuff (he also owned Central PA Kayak school) he formalized the existance of New Wave. For most of it's existance it was located on Roundtop Rd, just outside of Middletown. The business went under in the 90's and John went into the business of making rotomolding ovens for a while. His brother, Paul, still makes kayaks (many of them extremely similar to John's designs, hint, hint). Paul's company is called PS composites and the URL is http://www.customkayak.com/
New Wave was at it's peak during the squirt boat fad of the '80's. They made the Scalpel, Jet, Projet, Bigfoot, Screaming Meanie, etc. They transitioned into plastic boats with the Cruise Control and the Sleek (and 1 or 2 others). They made one fairly contemporary/ competitive (for the era) playboat called the Strobe. Shortly after the Strobe they went out of business.
