From snowboarding to paint ball shooting, Action Pursuits is the place for top of the line equipment at the Peninsula Center Mall in Soldotna. Action Pursuits is a new store toward the back of the Peninsula Center Mall that is a father and son partnership of Joe and Jeremy Jones, “We’ve been dealing out of our garage for about four years and Dad and I figured it was time to take it to the next level and so far we’ve been very successful,” said Jeremy Jones, who plans on taking business classes at KPC and applying his classroom learning to his real life experience. “You know they say don’t go into business with your family, but so far it’s working out real well for us,” said Jeremy’s father Joe.

Snowboarding and paint ball gaming have been popular on the Peninsula for a long time, but Joe says that until now there hasn’t been a local outlet, “There just hasn’t been a local provider of quality products at a reasonable price, especially paint ball products here on the Peninsula,” said Joe. The father and son team have played paint ball for many years themselves and have a wealth of knowledge in the sport that they eagerly share with their customers, “There’s a lot to it, it’s a pretty technical sport and as far as the snowboard side of the store, we mainly wanted to provide a better product at a reasonable price for people in the local area,” added Jones.

Jeremy likes helping new paint ball and snowboard enthusiasts get started with the right equipment, “If you’re looking for a reliable set up, something that will last for years to come, we have a full line of Titman products that just works non-stop and we can custom fit you with proper masks and all it takes to really get the most out of the sport,” said Jeremy. Action Pursuits is an authorized Smart Parts dealer and is also a distributor for K-2, Ride, and Marrow snowboard products. They also carry a full line of Ride snowboarding boots and accessories. Action Pursuits is open Monday through Saturday 10:00am to 6:00pm and Sunday noon to 4:00pm. For more information call Joe or Jeremy at 262-8875.
