Developed to conquer high-winds and confused seas, British style kayaks are a moderate form of performance touring kayak. All British style kayaks feature back-bands, which make them good for lay backs, and a skeg, which aids in tracking in wind and waves. Some British style kayaks favor more experienced paddlers.
Current Designs partnered with Danish kayak designer Jesper Kromann-Andersen to produce a series of “Danish Designed Current Design Kayaks”. This incubating family will be most noticed for it’s snug fit and sporty dimensions. Don’t let the dimensions deceive you, these kayaks accommodate a myriad of paddler shapes, sizes and skills. The hull designs are a marriage of classic hulls with new innovative twists leading too highly improved functionality and new levels of excitement. Being true to his Danish heritage, functionality in design isn’t enough for Jesper, the decks are ultra-stylish and functional bringing a new level of sophistication to the kayaking world. The Prana is the first release in the Danish Designed Current Designs family. Stay tuned in the years to come!
North American Touring
Originally designed for open ocean coastal regions, these kayaks are more forgiving than both the British and Greenland styles. Added width and depth improves storage capacity and makes them very comfortable. New paddlers will find these kayaks easier to become accustomed to. They are more efficient, faster and have better tracking than recreation or transitional models. North American style kayaks have foot controlled rudders for added maneuverability and tracking.
