Perception Sundance

The Sundance is moulded under license here in the UK, and been an extremely popular model now for several years. The design is taken from the original Perception Kiwi and the Sundance was a huge leap forward, both in hull design and comfort. With its oversized cockpit, the Sundance provides the paddler with loads of legroom, and makes getting into the kayak (and exiting if necessary) extremely simple.

Standard features include a comfortable padded high backrest, padded seat, adjustable pedal foot-rests, carry handles, front and rear deck bungee's, rear storage hatch and watertight bulk head. Stable, user friendly and light-weight. The Sundance is the perfect kayak for someone looking to take their first steps into the sport where confidence building is a higher priority than performance.

Due to its high sides, the Sundance offers a much drier ride than a sit-on-top kayaks, and helps to protect the paddlers lower body from the elements. On the water, the Sundance is extremely stable and tracks well in a straight line, and due to it being shorter than most touring kayaks it is also nimble and east to manoeuvre in narrow waterways. We know of customers who have vowed never to paddle a kayak due to past experiences of 'tippy' canoes that have since purchased Sundance's and loved them.
