Nordr XL3


Designer: Björn Thomasson

The key words for the Nordr line are light, seagoing, fast, agile – achieved by a combination of moderate initial stability, but lots of secondary, and a slender, hull fine-tuned to soft, easy movements, providing a dry ride in waves, an impressive touring speed, and solid kayak control.

The hull is rounded with just a hint of chines midships to combine speed and maneuverability. With inspiration from surfskis (the volume distribution) and their superior handling in waves, the Nordr is highly controllable, weather surfing waves in high speed, or negotiating rock gardens in low.

The Nordr XL3 is a big seagoing touring and expedition kayak with generous volume and capacity, for a family or an expedition team – a highly efficient passage-maker, in all kinds of conditions.
