SeaBird has always been grateful for any beneficial tips from our customers and after having heard a lot of comments about that our Discovery should have deck ropes, we have taken this into account and can now confirm that SeaBird's Discovery now comes with foredeck ropes. This adds the benefit to attach gear to the deck of a kayak or can be used as an aid for a swimmer to hold onto a floating kayak.

Can a hiking kayaker paddle a sportier kayak faster that his or her regular sea kayak and, if so, how much?

Sport 600 with surfski pedals - When originally SeaBird Sport 600 was produced with Power Pedal Pro, then now it comes standard with the surfski pedals - the high-effective carbon pedals with 3 point locking. Surfski pedals are fully adjustable, one piece curved prepreg carbon plate with flexible pedals. They are stiff to allow full pressure without any unintentional turning, but they flex just enough to give you full steering potential when needed. High friction peel ply surface gives you a secure grip regardless of your footwear.
