Whitewater Kayaks and Playboats

The kayaks we stock tend to be those which, because of their rocker profile, are those which are most suitable for surfing Cornish beaches in addition to whitewater paddling. As well as Dagger and Pyranha kayaks we can also supply LiquidLogic whitewater kayaks and playboats to order.

Dagger Axiom Pro

Not strictly a ww kayak but a superb training kayak for youngsters under about 5ft 2". We consider it the best of the kids kayaks because it is narrow which helps them a lot with using shorter paddles.

206cm x 57cm 13kg

Dagger GT range Action spec

Excellent first whitewater kayak available in 4 sizes to suit all paddlers. This is a very good boat to learn kayaking skills with reassuring handling in rough water. River spec (£675) model also available.

4 sizes


Dagger Axiom range
Fantastic boat for Cornish ww enthusiasts who also want an excellent surf kayak. Hard rails and a gradual asymmetric rocker combine to give best in class surf performance. Fast with high performance.

3 sizes

Dagger whitewater kayaks
Dagger Nomad, Mamba, Jitsu and G Force available to order at 10% off list prices.

Pyranha Z-One Connect R

A new specification for the popular Z-One kayak in 3 sizes. Like the Dagger Axiom this is a very good surfing kayak . A bit more buoyant than the Axioms if using in serious whitewater.

3 sizes


Pyranha Kayaks
Pyranha Loki, Jed, Shiva, 9R, Burn III, Karnali and Everest to order at 5% off list price.

Whitewater kayaks: these days the phrase tends to mean high volume kayaks suitable for kayaking grade 5 and grade 6 rapids, the phrase "river running" kayaks is also used.
Freestyle kayaks: radical, short kayaks with low volume an planing hulls for performing tricks on stoppers and standing waves, often known as "Playboats".
Surf kayaks: any of these kayaks can be used for surfing but specialist surf kayaks are more like waveskis and have less rocker and 3 fins to control the boat on the wave, very fast
