The Salamander is a 5.2 metre expedition sea kayak that is fast and manoeuvrable. Easily handles the open ocean. Three storage areas including a day hatch that can be accessed whilst on the water.
Speed, Responsiveness and Stability are important when paddling long distances on open ocean, and the Salamander is designed to perform! This is an Expedition Sea Kayak that will turn in its own length.
The storage compartments within the hull of the Salamander provide abundant space for gear and there are several places on the deck where luggage can also be secured.
A large day hatch is conveniently located within easy reach behind the paddler on the right hand side of the kayak which allows the paddler to access supplies whilst on the water.
The Salamander has a "flap" steering system that can be quickly and easily adjusted to suit people of different heights and gives a firm platform to brace against when paddling. The controls for lifting and lowering the traditional drop-over rudder on the Salamander are located beside the paddler for safety and stability.
The Salamander is a great kayak for people just starting out in sea kayaking, and has all the features that an experienced paddler would look for. The Salamander is recommended for taller paddlers (up to 6'7") and people who require a larger sea kayak.
