Category: Touring Kayak
Why choose the Dash?
Dash is the perfect choice for somebody just getting into touring kayaks. It is the first of our touring kayaks that has a slightly wider hull, giving the paddler a more secure and stable feel, and has enough length to give you good speed, without losing its manoeuvrability.
The luggage storage areas provide enough space to allow you to do some adventure travelling, making it the perfect boat for exploring.
The slightly larger cockpit gives paddlers of all experience more confidence when getting in and out of the kayak.
Application: Lakes, rivers, rapids up to Grade 1, bays, estuaries, calm ocean
Sealed bulkheads with storage front and rear
Foot operated retractable steering rudder
Extremely comfortable seat
Easy to manoeuvre, light to control and comfortable to paddle
Adjustable foot rests
Fully adjustable and padded seat
Built-in safety floatation
The Dash story:
Traditionally, there’s not a good stepping stone between your recreational kayaks and most of the available sea and touring kayaks. Through our own experiences, that of our staff, and speaking to other paddlers, we realised there was a need to develop a boat that was somewhere in between.
Our research showed that stability was one of the key factors in what paddlers wanted, as was ease of access, which resulted in our wider cockpit. Paddlers also wanted all the features offered by adventure touring kayaks, with outright speed not a major consideration.
The Dash is a very important model, giving the paddler a great transition for those who are thinking of stepping up to larger sea kayaking, while still having a kayak that's great for day trips and smaller rivers.
What’s in a name?
After coming from a recreational kayak, this boat is quite a step up in speed, hence the name Dash.
