The latest sea kayak design from Jesper Kromann-Andersen

The original concept for the Sisu was born from the traditional ethos that any kayak was not complete with the paddler. Cockpit fit and overall responsiveness were two guiding principles for Kromann-Andersen.

Summary

Virginia Marshall carves the Sisu sea kayak while out for a test paddle.

The Sisu tracks remarkably well for a kayak optimized for tidal surf paddlers. Manoeuvrability is aided by the hard chines to enhance secondary stability when edging and carving waves. Beginners will benefit from accelerated skill development and rapid progression.
