Nomad HP-1 Description

The Nomad HP1 is a solo kayak that follows the same concept as the HP3 (higher bow section, flexible decking) and of course gives you the same paddle-comfort and protection for your extended solo trips. The Nomad uses the same concept that was such a success on the YAKKAir HP1 and 2, with a high pressure inflatable keel and bottom section of the hull, together creating a dynamic and high performance hull shape, all at a feather weight and giving an excellent paddle position. As for performance, the Nomad improves in having a higher bow section, its extended length, and a flexible decking system giving better internal protection and enabling even longer trips and excursions. The inflatable models in the Leisure range are designed for leisure paddling close to the beach or on lakes and rivers. Aimed at beginners and occasional paddlers, they’re stable, sturdy and light weight and are well fitted for and suited to family fun. They pack down into a carry bag but can be unpacked and inflated in minutes.

This is the first Kayak I...

This is the first Kayak I have owned. I have paddled several others so I have some experience. This Kayak is inflatable and made of a heavy duty rubber material. It tracks well but hard to turn. The outer shell does not line up with the frame and the hose on the pump to inflate the Yak split the second time I used it. I can't find a replacement so I rapped it in duct tape but that doesn't work well. Next Kayak will be a hard shell.
