Entry Level Sit On Top Kayak or Sit On Top Kayak for Beginners

The Islander Calypso is an entry level sit on top kayak, that was designed in the UK. With a very high quality of UK manufacture this is a great option for  beach kayak rentals.

Islander Kayaks
has designed the Calypso around a self bailing hull system that helps to give the best levels of kayak safety. If you capsize, you can easily turn it back over and climb back on, any water in the kayak cockpit will then drain out. The Calypso is a great solo sit on top kayak that is based around a moulded in kayak seat pan. This offers a reasonable level of comfort and support, further support is achieved by the moulded in kayak footrests. The rear of the kayak features a tankwell that is ideal for the storage of a kayak dry bag, this is then secured by the bungee securing elastics. Located on the front deck and also the centre of the kayak are two futher potential locations for kayak storage hatches. While these are not fitted they could easily be retro fited. Each end of this sit on top kayak are kayak grab handles, there are also two further carry handles adjacent to the sides of the kayak seat. All of these make it very easy to man handle the kayak on and off the water.

January Staff Newsletter

January saw us starting to get into the swing of things again. A little snow saw many of the team in the Beacons, as well as further afield with trips to the Peak District, Cheddar Gorge and Pembrokeshire all squeezed in. New Years day allowed few of us to get out (even if the weather wasn't great in South Wales) but a number were in still Snowdonia and elsewhere where it was a little nicer.
