Known for its great glide, stability and speed, keeping those highlights we tweaked the hull for additional efficiency, stability and capacity. The durable S18 EXP G2 comes standard with a keel strip and 4 hatches for adventures which makes it very popular for ultra-marathon kayak events as well.

The Stellar Surfski: An amalgamation of the SEA, SEI G2 and S18SX. High stability and low wetted surface area and improved rocker and stern fairing makes this boat fast on the flats and agile in the swell. The 3rd generation seat has a very rounded back to eliminate hot spots and increase rotation for a more powerful stroke. With an optimized rudder position and a more rounded keel in the stern, the Falcon is a very agile boat, similar to that of a much shorter Surfski. Innovative features include water shedding bow and stern handles, inboard set cockpit handles and an improved volume in the bow deck for a drier ride. If you want a boat for all conditions – this is it!
The second-generation S14(G2) pays homage to the original in its hull shape, but we added some beam to increase the primary stability and a touch of volume for the carrying capacity. You will find this boat retains the smooth efficient feel in the water with updated features above the waterline. A paddle recess behind the cockpit rim, a wider and more functional lock bar and more aggressive cut-aways make for a tighter catch and modern look, plus the convenience of a deck pod makes storing a phone or keys easy. To round out this best seller, we refined the ergonomics of the cockpit and seating position for better rotation and rolling.
The Stellar 14′ Low Volume (S14-LV) Touring Kayak is in response to demand for a smaller version of our popular S14. Designed for speed and stability for small to medium sized paddlers for touring and fitness paddling, the S14-LV has the speed of a much longer boat. Two water tight hatches allow for ample storage for day and overnight trips, while the retractable skeg in the stern helps with tracking. The S14-LV comes standard with fittings to upgrade to a rudder steered boat as well. Its short length and light weight make it ideal for those who want a high performance boat, but are short on storage space or frequently car-top their boat.
The 16’ Kingfisher is an intermediate sit-on-top and the 2nd generation of our popular S16S. The Kingfisher has an updated cockpit with a comfortable yet ergonomic seat and a footwell that will fit both short and tall paddlers.

The surprising speed of this hull will keep you competitive in your paddling group or a race.
