The Raz is a shorter “play style” sea kayak, the design considerations are very much towards performance in rough water and the surf zone. The high volume bow with lots of rocker, a shallow V- flat hull cross section and hard chines gives the Raz great manoeuvrability and handling, really coming into its own playing in waves and tide races.
Although relatively short at sub 15 ft the Raz still has enough hull speed to day paddle and explore the coast with good stowage volume for week-end trips.
Equipped with a two bulkhead, three hatch deck layout, two large hatches with storage for week-end use with a “day box” easily accessible in front of the cockpit. Deck lines and bungees for storage of gear and spare paddles. Comfortable carry handles fore and aft.
The adjustable seat, thigh braces and footrests ensure a good paddling fit. The “Raz 14” is a relatively high volume play sea kayak geared towards the larger paddler.
