The Skua is a high-performance touring kayak. It is lively but secure, and its excellent secondary stability makes even the novice feel comfortable in calm conditions. Its length provides good speed, and its volume ensures excellent secondary stability and load carrying capacity. Although not designed around racing, the Skua’s good speed and excellent handling characteristics mean that it is still competitive. The rock-solid secondary stability and sea friendliness of the kayak will give you the confidence to take on the most challenging conditions.
The Skua can be supplied with a retractable skeg instead of a rudder for more extreme applications, where the boat needs to be as clean as possible.
The Skua is suitable for all paddlers from beginners through to experts. Even a novice would enjoy a Skua in safe and calm conditions. At the other end of the scale, an expert would be able to handle the most extreme sea-kayaking conditions.
Kaskazi Skua 3-Piece
To make life easier for storage, transport and travelling to great paddling destinations around the globe, we can make a Kaskazi Skua in a 3 Piece version. The kayak is split at the two bulkheads to give you three sections of the kayak that are easier to transport and store. To join the kayak strengthened interlocking bulkheads are bolted together using wing nuts and rubber sealing washers. Once assembled, it is a very standard looking Kaskazi Skua with two faint lines running around the bulkhead areas of the kayak. The 3 piece kayak is approximately 2 kg heavier than the standard model.
