Maybe your right arm is stronger than your left; maybe your body tilts east when you really wanna go west; or maybe your personal gyroscope hasn’t worked since the Clinton administration. Whatever the case, the inability to paddle your recreational kayak in a straight line makes your experience on the water, well, challenging. Not to worry. We solved that problem with the Santee 116, a rec kayak that’s easy to paddle in a straight line! The Swede form design makes it simple (and fun and rewarding and spirit-lifting) to get from point A to point B . . . without wandering to all points in-between. You can toss enough gear in the ample hatches for a serious daytrip, hit a river or lake or coastal inlet, and cut a smooth steady trail across the water. As a bonus, you won’t tear a rotator cuff putting the 116 on your roof rack because it tips the scales at a svelte 38 pounds. (Spoiler alert ― the Santee 116 won’t fight you when you paddle. It’ll work with you, so you’ll end up having a blast.)

SANTEE 126 SPORTClick Image for Larger View

This recreational kayak ups the ante on the industry-changing Santee 126 by adding an oversized cockpit, without sacrificing a scintilla of performance.

The 126 Sport gives you room for fishing gear, photography equipment, camping gear… whatever. The cockpit is a spacious 55 x 24 inches. And 55 x 24 = a whole lotta comfort.

When we designed the Santee 126, we didn’t set out to redefine recreational kayaks. Our goal was to redefine the recreational category. In other words, we wanted to bring a new standard to what rec paddlers could expect on the water, and with the Santee 126 we accomplished the mission. This boat glides and tracks like no other, so fun becomes effortless and instantaneous. If you wanna get a little aggressive, the 126’s multi-chined hull gives you the ability to carve some tight turns, and with the fully adjustable seat system, your rear end and lower back won’t bark at you after a full day on the water. There’s even a paddle holder and rear deck security bar. Speaking of bars, we raised the bar for the recreational category with the Santee 126.

SKIMMER 116Click Image for Larger View

Okay, let’s just get it out there, the Skimmer 116 is a darn good looking sit on top. The lines split the difference between beautifully classic and cutting-edge modern with a finish so glossy you can see yourself in it. It’s a sit on top that begs to be put in the water, and when you get it there, the Skimmer 116 performs. With its touring style hull and refined scupper system, the Skimmer 116 skims across the water, cuts through waves, and slices through chop. Oh, and it weighs in at a slight 42 pounds, which raises the performance bar to a new level when you’re tossing this bad boy on your racks.

SKIMMER 140 TClick Image for Larger View

The new Skimmer 140 T, a lightweight tandem addition to our popular Skimmer Sit-on-Top Series. Paddlers have been begging for a lightweight alternative to the heavy two-person polyethylene sit-on-top on the market, so we put a tandem SOT deck on a proven lightweight hull design. The touring style hull and Trylon construction of the Skimmer 140 T allow it to easily outpace other kayaks in its class, and its low seat-pan and comfortable outfitting make you feel totally connected with the boat. Fully-featured from bow to stern with generous front wells, two 5.5-inch day hatches, a 10-inch bow hatch, and adjustable Airestream seat backs, the Skimmer 140T is designed for folks who like to spend time exploring with a friend. If a partner isn’t available, a center seat allows the Skimmer 140T to be used solo, and this tandem is light enough that solo really is an option. Grab some paddles and PFD’s, the lightweight tandem sit-on-top you’ve been waiting for has finally arrived.
