Kayak fishing is becoming more popular than ever and there is now a massive range of different types of angling kayaks. General purpose kayaks are designed so that you can jump on & paddle any type of water your adventures might find you on. They can be used on flat water but are also capable of tackling easier white-water & surfing on the beach.
Touring kayaks are designed to offer both comfort and performance for short or extended trips on the water. White-water kayaks offer maximum manoeuvrability and agility for negotiating rapids and avoiding obstacles. Sea Kayaks primarily designed for use on the sea & coastal waters but can also be used on large rivers, lakes & estuaries. Generally 16ft+ in length resulting in good tracking & performance in swell & designed for optimum efficiency.
Play boats & freestyle kayaks are extremely small kayaks specifically designed and shaped for pulling moves & tricks in play holes, waves & other features. Modern play boat designs allow the user to get kayak & paddlers completely airborne whilst performing tricks.
Inflatable kayaks can be summarised in 3 words Fun, Stable & Portable! Surf kayaks are designed for surfing waves at the beach on the sea. These kayaks typically have quick hulls with a low volume back deck to help pick up waves. Child kayaks are typically narrower than adult kayaks making it easier for children to paddle & reach the water. They are also lighter weight & smaller in volume providing a better fit.
