No good
It would be too slow with those lines !

Nice looking kayaks!

No dealers in the USA though.

Coming soon… we’ll have for next season.

“no practical usefulness whatsoever” !
Kind of interesting to read the English version… At spots seems like an automated computer interpretation …

I caught that line too
"a kayak for pure unaffected paddling joy and with no practical usefulness whatsoever."

That sentence alone has me interested.

Top speed isn’t the point. They are rolling kayaks, like the original homebuilt black pearls.

"no practical usefulness whatsoever’

As long as you aren’t hunting seals, it’s true (-;

can I get one in sunburst poly?

Nope… :wink:

Slow ?
I’m just curious about what makes it slow. Is it the short water line, or something else?

gotta have it
got a bad case of kayak lust

You need a plumb bow for speed.

I was just picking!

Looks like a beautiful boat to me

Jack L

thank goodness!

Just found out the downside to this boat, it’s made in China.

Bill H.

Yea, what’s not made in China?



Jack L

Most kayaks are not made in China.

Bill H.

So what?

That doesn't necessarily mean anything...other than it's made in China. Would it be any different if it was made in France, or Kazakhstan or Ethiopia? I really don't understand this China-phobia.

You "really don’t understand " ?

From your past posts every time the China goods comes up it is very obvious that you "don't understand".

1. go talk to a bunch of nation wide building contractors who are trying to settle law suits because of inferior wall board from China.
2. go talk to Greg Barton who got screwed by China and then had them even rub it in by stealing his boat molds
3. Go talk to the hundred thousand people who lost their jobs which went to the inferior factories in china.

The list goes on and on, but you just don't want to "really understand"

I for one would buy goods from the countries you mention or any other country who treats their workers properly and produces goods that are not inferior if I have the choice.
