Introducing the F1, the pinnacle of kayak engineering designed for the advanced paddler and hailed as the fastest multisport kayak in the world—we believe it, and so do Coast to Coast champions Richard Usher, George Christison, and more recently, Sam Clark, who have all experienced victory astride the F1.
Meticulously crafted with a hull design perfected through the expertise of Richard Karn, an ex-yacht designer for Team NZ, the F1 stands as a testament to precision and speed. This kayak is not just fast; it's a masterpiece of hydrodynamics, offering remarkable secondary stability. Its lower volume and impressive 6.2-meter length allow for unparalleled acceleration, effortlessly cutting through wave trains and eliminating any hint of rocking.
The F1 isn't just a kayak; it's a force of nature on the water, delivering an experience tailored for the most skilled and daring paddlers. With a pedigree of Coast to Coast victories and the endorsement of elite athletes, the F1 is the definitive choice for those who demand the absolute best in speed, stability, and performance. Join the ranks of champions and push your limits with the F1—the fastest multisport kayak designed for those who seek the thrill of being at the forefront of aquatic excellence.

We work on a 3-4 week turnaround. In many cases we will be able to supply before the three weeks is up however, these are a hand-made product so they do take time to produce and we often have multiple orders in the system. we will advise you of an eta at the time of ordering.
Shipping and Pickup
We are based in Mount Maunganui and kayaks can be picked up directly from my workshop. Shipping throughout NZ and the world and will be charged at cost. Please ask for an estimate.
All fiberglass kayaks come with a white hull. This looks smart and doesn't show up as many scratches caused by rocks. The deck can be either a single, block colour (great if you want to display sponsors logo's) or your choice of two colours that are faded together. Please note that the colours are mixed in with the resin at the time of laying up the kayak so not everything is possible. At the time of ordering we will discuss the options with you and make recommendations if necessary.
Our composite kayaks have a white hull. If you would like a clear hull (to show off the beauty of the fibres) please be aware that micro bubbles and resin pockets may be visible. The deck is your choice of colour just like the fiberglass model. We prefer to have this coloured to prevent the sun from heating it up too much but if you wish I can also do the top with a clear coat.
