How do you improve on a true winner? Only change what is necessary. Using the Penguin sea kayak hull, a new modern deck on the 'Shearwater' allows more leg and foot room. Combined with a new seat and padded backrest, the Shearwater offers maximum comfort for all day paddling. A new rudder system mounted to the hull of the kayak gives excellent strength and allows easy lift.

Available in Standard (Polyethylene) and Lite (Polyethylene foamed core construction).

Max & Melanie Grant used the lightweight foamed core construction of the Penguin, Shearwater and Skua seakayaks when curcumnavigating around the South Island by seakayak. At times there were rough seas and rough landing but our liteweight kayaks handled the conditions perfectly.


*NEWS FLASH* -  Mission Kayaking have taken over manufacturing of our Swift, Penguin, Shearwater, Skua and Southern Endeavour + our recreation Strike. Contact details are on our homepage.
