Think globally. Paddle locally. If there’s one thing to know about our company, it’s that we don’t design our kayaks sitting in an ivory tower. We do it by getting out there and paddling with like-minded paddlers from around the world, dreaming of what comes next. Your input inspires our output. And together we craft the most beautiful, purpose-built, experience-enhancing kayaks in the world. So if you’re as nuts about the water as we are and tend to treat the world like it’s your personal playground, it’s time to get a paddle wet and go on all the rides. From big water to tiny serene streams, every kayak we build is designed for one purpose: to maximize the thrill of being on the water. Because to us, water is more than just two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen. It’s total freedom. It’s an escape. It’s a gateway to pure adventure. We built them together. Now it’s time to paddle them together.

pair of jeans, a kayak that fits right will provide you with the comfort and control you desire. We list maximum load weights for each of our models, but don't publish recommended paddler sizes due to differences in physical proportions and paddling experience. The best way to find a kayak that fits you right is to get in and try it.

ROCKER The degree of curvature in the hull from bow to stern defines the rocker. More rocker improves the ability to maneuver the kayak, especially in rough water. A kayak with little or no rocker will track very well and travel efficiently, but may be more difficult to maneuver. We carefully control the kayak's rocker to deliver the right combination of maneuverability, speed and seaworthiness appropriate for it's intended use.

WIDTH A wider kayak will be more stable than a narrow one. Conversely, a narrow kayak is usually more efficient than a wide one. A wider kayak may provide more stability for both heavier paddlers and tall paddlers with a higher center of gravity. A wider kayak will also enable a paddler to spread their legs out more.

FORM LENGTH A longer boat will track straighter, glide further and travel faster, making it more efficient. Length also adds to stability and capacity. A shorter boat is easier to handle and can be more maneuverable.

Swede Form: Widest behind the cockpit, Swede form has a cleaner, longer and more slender entry, giving efficient touring speeds and maneuverability. In shorter lengths these kayaks are very responsive. Longer kayaks with this feature have amazing acceleration and track well. Because of the narrow bow they may punch through a steep wave, rather than ride over it.

Swede Form: Widest behind the cockpit

Fish Form: Widest ahead of the cockpit, Fish form kayaks have a more blunt entry but will have a more slender exit through the water. The bows typically have more flare and are usually more buoyant than others. This enables our shorter boats to be excellent surf zone kayaks. Longer kayaks benefit from this feature in large seas.

Fish Form: Widest ahead of the cockpit

DEPTH Depth is a key component of a good fit. A deeper hull will be roomier for paddlers with larger legs, and increases load carrying ability. A shallower hull will be less affected by wind, and may better fit small paddlers.

HULL SHAPE

Shallow Arch These have good initial stability and are highly maneuverable.

Shallow “V” The “V” shape improves tracking, has a lively feel and delivers very comfortable stability.

Open Cockpit: The Solara's feature our largest open cockpits. These are very easy to get in and out of, and give a feeling of being almost completely free from the boat. Open cockpits have enough space to put gear between your legs for easy access.

Hard Chine A hard chine kayak has a well-defined edge where the hull bottom meets the sides. This increases the initial stability greatly. Hard chines give defined edging angles and assist in holding an edge.

Soft Chine A smooth transition from the bottom of the hull to the sides. Soft chines give smooth edging at unlimited angles. The majority of kayaks that we build have a soft chine.

Recreational Cockpit: The Kestrels feature recreational cockpits that are long enough so you can simply get in and sit down. They are unrestrictive and many new paddlers appreciate their roominess and versatility.

We design hull shapes for the ideal combination of tracking, efficiency, agility and seaworthiness based on the kayaks intended use. Many hulls are fairly complex and have different shapes blended together.

CD17003_Catalog-2018_dh.indd 7-8

Keyhole Cockpit: A keyhole cockpit blends the openness of a recreational cockpit and the integrated thigh braces of a touring cockpit. The result is a cockpit that’s easy to enter and exit, while offering performance, fit and solid connectivity to the kayak.

Touring Cockpit: Touring cockpits are generally smaller and snug fitting to help resist imploding of the spray skirt if hit by a large wave in rough water. They include built-in thigh braces on the cockpit rim to maximize control when edging and rolling. They range from 29" to 35" long, depending on the model.

P O LY E T H Y LE N E We’ve taken rotomolding to the next level with our own high-tech process controls to produce the lightest possible rotomolded kayaks. We use only linear high density polyethylene in all of our rotomolded models to maximize stiffness without sacrificing impact strength. Our polyethylene maintains its integrity over a broad temperature range and has added stabilizers giving it increased protection from harmful ultraviolet rays and oxidation. Our rotomolded kayaks are affordable, ultra tough, highly durable and will hold up to more significant abuse compared to composite constructions.

If there’s one thing to know about our company, it’s that we don’t design our kayaks sitting in an ivory tower. We do it by getting out there and paddling with like-minded paddlers from around the world, dreaming of what comes next. Your input inspires our output. And together we craft the most beautiful, purpose-built, experience-enhancing kayaks in the world. So if you’re as nuts about the water as we are and tend to treat the world like it’s your personal playground, it’s time to get a paddle wet and go on all the rides. From big water to tiny serene streams, every kayak we build is designed for one purpose: to maximize the thrill of being on the water. Because to us, water is more than just two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen. It’s total freedom. It’s an escape. It’s a gateway to pure adventure. We built them together. Now it’s time to paddle them together. Actual weights may vary +/- 5%. Specifications subject to change.
