back to Hurricane sit-on-top kayaks

SKIMMER 128

This industry-shaking sit on top was designed with two words in mind ― performance and lightweight. With its low seat-pan and intelligent outfitting, you become one with the boat and the water. You don’t just sit on it, you paddle it, and with a touring style hull and lightweight Trylon construction, you glide across the surface. The Skimmer 128 features a generous bow hatch, a pair of day hatches, and an optional rudder, so it’s ready for just about any adventure you can imagine. Finally, a sit-on-top that offers performance and style in perfect balance. What will we dream up next?kayak trips and lessons alerts in houston
