S.K.U.K. Latitude

The Latitude is a narrow kayak that is designed for the tall thin paddler. It has an extended keyhole for longer legs.

 

It has extended knee bumps so the lighter paddler can move the seat forwards or the taller paddler has enough room for his or her knees. The kayak is similar to the Pilgrim Expedition except it has an additional 50mm (2”) longer stern. This extra volume has been added immediately behind the cockpit to reduce the amount that the stern of the kayak squats down when being paddled forwards.

Key Features

  • Three compartments, including an offset day hatch, allowing the kayaker to reach into the compartment while at sea.

 

  • Sloping rear bulkhead behind the seat, allowing the kayak to be emptied by lifting the bow (no X rescue necessary).

 

  • Polished deck recesses.

 

  • Exceptional maneuverability, with direction stability. Very fast in following seas.

 

  • Large round hatches.

 

  • Minimum weather cocking in strong winds.
