Selkie Kit Description

Petite paddlers love the snug fit and lower volume deck for higher angle paddle strokes. Like the original Greenlandic sealskin kayaks, the Selkie is a hard-chined 14' x 22.5" boat designed for petite women and for larger paddlers who want a low volume kayak to play in the surf.  It features a low sheer line with the Murrelet style, cutaway side deck panels that allow more body rotation and a more efficient use of a Greenland paddle. A number of small women have already expressed their joy at finally having a low volume boat that fits! Many have had a hard time finding a boat that's actually made for their smaller frames. Since her introduction she has been paddled by a continuous stream of women ranging from 4'9" to 5'4" who were absolutely thrilled that they finally had a boat designed specifically for them and that is lightweight enough for them to cartop.
