Wooden Kayak Comparison

Wooden Kayak Comparison

We offer four models for different types of paddlers and adventures. Our kayak comparison page is here to help you sort out the differences:

Touring Wooden Kayak

Designed for paddlers who want an efficient kayak for higher speeds to cover longer distances.

Sport Touring Wooden Kayak

Designed for paddlers who want higher speeds but more stability than the Touring model.

Sport Wooden Kayak

The short version of the Touring Kayak for paddlers who want a shorter boat that turns quicker, yet still retains a mix of good speed and stability than the Touring model.

Ultra Sport Wooden Kayak

Designed for paddlers who are looking for a more stable and maneuverable boat. It is a great boat for those looking to fish, do photography or anything else that requires higher stability.

Wooden Kayak Comparison – Model Sizes

Fit

We want to offer a similar paddling experience for different size people. We offer three sizes in each wooden kayak model we produce so that you have a kayak that fits you well while performing similarly to other sizes in its model range.

Stability

A second reason for offering various sizes is for stability. A wooden kayak that might fit you well may feel a little unstable to you and going to a larger size may suit you better.

Control

Performance is a third factor in selecting kayak size. You might find that going to a smaller wooden kayak offers you more control if the stability feels comfortable.
