As much at home in surf and rock gardening as it is to crossing a mirror-like bay
Current Designs-Prana
Availability:More Information


A collaborative effort between Danish designer Jesper Kromann-Andersen and Current Designs award-winning team, the new Prana touring kayak is as much at home in surf and rock gardening as it is to crossing a mirror-like bay. Available in fiberglass and Kevlar layups, the Prana is a quick and highly maneuverable kayak, with an efficient shape that chews through the miles. The hull is more stable than its svelte 21-inch beam would lead you to expect., while a hybrid hard chine and tracking-friendly rocker profile make this 17-foot touring kayak perfect for all conditions. The Prana is standard with both fore and aft day hatches, fore and aft large hatches and a full accompaniment of safety and comfort. Also available in an LV (low-volume) version.
