General Purpose & All Round Kayaks

Cross Over Kayaks for All Round Paddling


These are the ideal closed-cockpit kayaks designed for people looking for one boat for all occasions, often referred to as General Purpose, All-Round or Crossover Kayaks. With a boat like this you can partake in nearly every aspect of kayaking without having to buy a specialized boat for the purpose. Suitable for touring, coastal bay hopping, surfing and easy-grade white water. All of these kayaks are available in different sizes and specifications so there should be a kayak here to suit every paddler. Looking at these kayaks as an entry point into paddle sports, they offer the opportunity for progression within the sport for those looking to develop further than a typical sit-on-top kayak can offer.
