Southern Skua

Southern Skua with small cockpit

Designed for expeditions where distances are to be covered in varying sea conditions. The Southern Skua has a low deck profile enabling it to perform extremely well in windy conditions, while its longer hull gives it greater speed and allows it to respond in a following sea to surf the waves. The Southern Skua gives maximum stability in the open sea.

A handy third compartment behind the cockpit can be reached while paddling.

The Southern Skua comes with an option of a small cockpit as above photos & a larger cockpit (below photos)

*NEWS FLASH* -  Tim Taylor from Ruahine Kayaks has taken over manufacturing of our Southern Skua and Sea Hawk.
