|Type of Water
|Recreational - Sit Inside
|Short and Wide, 10'-14'
|Small Lakes and Shallow Rivers
|This is the most popular style in our area. Stable, maneuverable, user-friendly and have easy entry cockpits that fit almost anyone comfortably. Designed for first time paddlers and outdoor enthusiasts who like to combine their on-water pleasures with other pursuits such as bird watching, fishing and photography.
|Recreational - Sit-On-Top
|Short and Wide, 10'-13'
|Sit on tops are very stable, easy to get in and out of and there is no feeling of confinement. They're also self-bailing, which means they have small holes (called "scupper holes") that allow the water to drain right through them. You do drip water on your legs as you paddle. These are most popular in warm water climates.
|Bigger Lakes and Moving Water
|Transitional Kayaks bridge the gap between Recreational and Touring categories, combining the best elements from both. Like Recreational designs, they are short and somewhat wide. They favor stability on calm waters and easy turning over speed. White the cockpits are a bit smaller than Recreational cockpits, they are still quite roomy for easy access.
|Long and Slender
|Performance Designs are good for all distances, expeditions and skill mastery.
|North American Style
If you want a stable kayak with some serious capacity, a seat back and a rudder.
If you want a snug-fitting, playful kayak with smooth edging, graceful lines, a day hatch, a back band and a skeg.
If you want a tight-fitting, hard-edging kayak with an old school look, serious rolling ability, a back band and a skeg.

|Boats made for unique situations and unique goals.
