The S14 is a little different to your average kayak. With a surf-ski inspired cockpit, it can be paddled in calm conditions without a spray deck. Unlike a traditional sea kayak, where you paddle with your knees under the deck, the S14 has heaps of room around your knees. This is idea for people who have avoided sit-in kayaks through a fear of becoming trapped in the kayak. A spray deck can be fitted to keep out water on rougher days.
The hull has been designed to be very efficient at the typical cruising speed of a recreational sea kayaker. Even though it is a little shorter, it’ll cruise along with longer kayaks easily.
At 22kg it is easy enough to load onto your roof rack. But, this is no fragile kayak. It is built strong, with an excellent finish. If you like owning well thought-out gear then you will love this kayak.
The front and rear hatches allow 175 litres of gear to be carried inside the kayak. The rudder is easily deployed to help keep the kayak on track in windy conditions.
The S14 is available in several configurations.
- With or without the fairing. The fairing allows the fitment of a spraydeck
- With or without a bailer. The surf ski version includes a bailer, which drains the cockpit as you paddle. A bailer can be fitted to the kayak version.
