North Sea is very easy to paddle and combines surf ability, volume, weight and design magnificently. Few other kayaks can match its all-around abilities.
One of the first things you will notice about the North Sea is the graceful lines of a British style kayak. The bow on the kayak makes it cut waves so that no or little water makes it to the deck of the boat. The kayak is very reliable in difficult conditions and there is no problem to keep up a high pace in hard conditions. This kayak is recommended for advanced paddlers, as well as ambitious beginners who want to develop their skills and take their paddling to the next level.
North Sea has four dry hatches, two bigger and two smaller. In big dry compartments you can fit in gear for a daily picnic or even for a week´s expedition. Smaller day hatches are used for storing more necessary gear on water (for example: food, drinks, extra jacket, gloves, etc.). Smallest day hatch is made from soft and durable neoprene and it is meant for storing your mobile phone, GPS, sunglasses, etc. In the back and front of the kayak deck there are rubber lines, which are meant for holding gear: drinking water, spare paddle, sleeping mat, etc. North Sea has ergonomic handles in the bow and stern to transport the kayak on land.
