Exciting times ahead with two new touring models about to be released from the Stealth factory in Pinetown. The new 17ft Toura is already being tested and there is a 15ft version in the pipeline. These kayaks boast plenty of storage both front and rear with he new Stealth twist and seal hatch on the front deck and a large entrance oval hatch on the rear deck. Camping friendly storage and the option of a skeg or flip-up style trailing rudder ticks a lot of boxes for those chasing an ocean ready tourer. These kayaks are lightweight and also encourage a comfortable paddling position with the seat set higher than the footwells to improve drainage via the venturi cuppers, and in the absence of the fish hatch, you can enjoy feet-together stance like an Ocean Racing Ski (ORS) to help improve your rotation when paddling. There will definitely be some of these on the way to Melbourne as soon as they are ready, I’m itching to get one out for a run at Cape Woolamai!
Here’s the teaser video from the factory floor with more information -enjoy!
