Hi, just curious to see others opinions and maybe even make a note of what next to get. Currently I use my really old (1974) Kirton Espada for harbour races and as it's such an old design it's more stable yet slower than modern K1s. I'm talking about dealing with 1-3 foot swell and then boat wash, can get as big as 4 feet before k1s become a no go. And yes I want to be that guy that uses a K1 racing against Sea kayaks so no sea kayaks or surf skis for me.
First post I’ve ever seen on this forum for a boat even bordering on a K1. You need a racing forum, this isn’t it.
It’s mostly beginners here.
Bill is right. Having said that, the boats that come to mind are the fast racing kayaks by Kayakpro. They’ve got a range that go from pure K1 to seaworthy versions of K1 style hulls.
