Introducing the Ocean X, a high-performance racing kayak meticulously designed for speed enthusiasts. Crafted along the lines of a surf ski, the Ocean X is built for exceptional speed and impeccable tracking—making it the ultimate choice for ocean and multisport racing, as well as thrilling touring adventures across the picturesque lakes, rivers, and harbours that define New Zealand.

Responding to the dynamic needs of paddlers, the Ocean X now offers a simplified multisport configuration alongside the classic sea kayak setup. Key differences include a 400mm multisport rudder for quick adjustments, foam bulkheads for hull flexing during river escapades, and simplified hatches to lower weight.

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

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.
