SKUK Explorer

SKUK Explorer

I have paddled a Romany Classic for the past 4 years and more recently I purchased the Explorer from Steve at Southern Sea Kayaks. Both handle and inspire confidence in rough water superbly, so that’s a big ‘tick in the box’ for me! 😀But it’s the small details that all ‘add up’, like a skeg that actually works…reliably, unlike a particular kayak brand that simply can’t get it right 😕 (not that you ever really need it in a Romany!) And then there’s the sloping bulkhead which makes emptying the kayak so much easier; hatch covers that stay in place but are easy to get on/off and last but not least, toggles that are actually comfortable and fit for purpose….unlike that other kayak brand whose toggles are worse than useless!
