We use a variety of materials including high quality glass fibre, carbon and kevlar to produce kayaks that meet the needs of a wide range of paddlers.
All hulls and most decks are built using sandwich technology to ensure the strongest, stiffest structures, but at minimal weight.
All kayaks are built with the following features in common:
- Top quality vinylester resins and vinylester gel coats.
- Vacuum consolidated and heat cured.
- Multi-layered laminates using various weights of fabrics, with reinforcement precisely located at high load areas.
- Fine outer skin of glass fibre for excellent adhesion to gel coat and for easy repair.
- High tech core materials to produce stiff and strong.
- “KajakSport” hatches and skegs.
- “Smart Track” rudders (where fitted)
- Ergonomically designed full footrest / steering systems (where fitted)
Club: Our most robust, heavy duty specification, using a mix of glass fibre fabrics, ideal for getting started and knocking about and having a whole lot of fun.
Performance: For those who need something of a higher specification and lower weight than the Club construction, has an internal skin of kevlar on both the hull and deck, to create a kayak that you can be proud of.
Elite: Our lightest specification, with kevlar exterior and carbon interior for the most serious paddlers.
Club - Heavy Duty: Same methodology as “Club”, but with additional material as needed for the Surf Sea Kayaks and Expedition Kayaks.
Performance - Heavy Duty: Same methodology as “Performance”, but with additional material as needed for the Surf Sea Kayaks and Expedition Kayaks.
Weights shown in the Specification section is for a kayak ready to be put on the water. This includes hatch covers, rudder & steering system, and / or skeg, deck fittings, lines etc. Weights may vary plus or minus 1 kg approx.
Paddler Weight Range
This is the suggested weight range of the paddler that the kayak will be suitable for. This is a guide and will depend upon the type of paddling and amount of gear to be carried.
This is the suggested maximum suitable load for the kayak to carry, including the weight of the paddler and any additional gear carried. This is only intended as a guide, so additional load would be possible but performance and handling may suffer.
