Fit for the surf

Skim Viking Legenda 5G

The Braveheart is a fast sea kayak with very good handling. Ideal for the most difficult conditions. If you want to improve your paddling skills and are looking for a challenge in difficult conditions, then the Braveheart with its unbelievable stability and maneuverability is your ideal partner.

This kayak contains the experience of 20 years of kayak building and the use of the latest technologies. Particular attention was paid to the deck design, which is often neglected. The shape of the deck allows for a lighter and stiffer construction, resulting in a lower center of gravity than usual. A factor that leads to the outstanding stability.

The Braveheart and Braveheart LV are the sea kayaks of choice for very rough conditions and surf surfing. Her flat hull offers a high degree of stability. The Braveheart reacts very quickly and can be precisely controlled in the wave. Both Beaufort and Braveheart models are skeg equipped.
