Raptor G2 Description

Santa Cruz kayaks are built for one purpose, to catch more fish without the balancing act. Fast, unmatched stability and light weight, a great combination not found in any of the competitors’ models. The Founder, Jim Martin has been fishing and diving the California coastal waters since 1975. Spearfishing, abalone diving or just exploring the underwater world. “I wanted a kayak that suited the sort of conditions that I fish and dive in, so I had to build my own.“ Friends wanted one, soon after, the Raptor was born. The only kayak that can convert from a paddle kayak to a pedal drive using the unique drive adapter!
