Expedition Åfjord 368 Club is a shortened version of Expedition LV/HV. It is a great kayak for hobby paddlers. This kayak is similar with Expedition Afjord sea kayak, but it is made without rudder. It is very suitable for exercise, fishing and hunting.
Expedition Åfjord 368 Club is manufactured in a hightech blow molding technology in material HDPE polyethylene. This type of plastic provides an unique combination of rigidity, weight and durability.
Expedition´s designs are made from modern Swedish form – the widest point of the kayak is in the back of the cockpit. This design makes paddling forward more comfortable and efficient because you can put the paddle more close to your body. If you are paddling with wind and waves you feel surprised how easily you can handle the conditions with this kayak.
Sitting in the kayak is very comfortable, wide cockpit for easy access, padded seat and adjustable thigh braces. The kayak also includes a new backrest regulation system which allows you to adjust positioning while sitting securely in the vessel. Thigh braces can also be regulated by ten centimeters both ways.
The rear part of the hull of Expedition Åfjord 368 is shaped like a keel. Therefore, the course stability of this kayak is unique even when you don`t use the rudder.
