Islander Calypso Marine Recycled

With most of the features found on the regular Calypso, the same cracking little kayak can now be purchased in Marine Recycled Polyethylene. Designed for solo all-round use, it can be used on a variety of locations. Including canals, lake, gently moving rivers and along sheltered coastlines.

Features include a comfortable padded seat/backrest, 4x carry handles, moulded in footrests and multiple scupper holes.

A very stable hull shape makes this a great entry-level kayak for newcomers to the sport. And a V-shaped keel is appreciated by more experienced paddlers looking to take the Calypso out onto small surf or choppier conditions. This keel also helps to maintain straight line speed, especially on breezy days.

For this customers looking for a tandem sit-on-top kayak made from recycled plastic- the Islander Paradise 2 is available to order through ourselves. Contact us for more details.
