Kayaks Direct To You

We’ve been in the adventure industry for a few decades now and have had the pleasure of trying out dozens of different kayaks, some local and some not so local. We are confident that Vagabond Kayaks represent the best sit-on-top touring kayaks yet that we have had the pleasure of enjoying.

Selecting the right Kayak

As far as we are concerned through our observations and personal experiences there are two main considerations when selecting the appropriate kayak. These are directional control and stability. We are more than satisfied that Vagabond kayaks meet and exceed these basic requirements. The next consideration is your size and weight and your desired application, and we think you will find a model which matches most weight capacities and applications.

About Vagabond Kayaks

This kayak range and all fittings have been designed by award-winning kayak designer Celliers Kruger (formerly the owner and designer of Synergy Kayaks).

1. These are high-performance recreational kayaks that have the stability and comfort you would expect from a recreational boat, but with an ergonomic design that allows correct and efficient paddling technique and good speed to make paddling an enjoyable experience.

2. Paddle cutaways are included on all but their whitewater kayaks. This is a feature that is usually only seen in high-end, competitive kayaks.

3. Custom-designed fittings, including the innovative Scupper Venturis, Multifit fittings and a connected, adjustable Footrest system.

4. Vagabond kayaks are moulded with a double layer of plastic. There is a smooth outer shell of solid UV-stabilised polyethylene and an inner layer of aero polyethylene, which increases stiffness while reducing overall weight.

5. The Stand-up Platform on most of their kayaks makes it easier for paddlers to get onto the kayak and to get out unassisted.

6. Two handles on the sides of most of their kayaks allow for a double-handed grip so that a single person can carry and move the kayak without assistance.

7. Their whitewater kayaks have light-weight, composite outfitting.

Vagabond Kayaks are available in the following colours.
