Easky

Venture designers really thought back to when they first took to the water when designing the Easky 13. They thought about what would help first time paddlers feel safe and allow them to gain the confidence to continue paddling. This may be the quintessential Lowcountry creek boat.

Whether day tripping on a river, exploring the coast or just enjoying a day at the beach, the Easky 13 makes it simple, safe and enjoyable. Venture has enhanced its standard features for 2008 which vastly improve the overall performance, function and comfort of the kayak.

The Easky 15 is a boat to grow with you.

On a river trip or a sheltered lake journey you’ll have no problems, there is also the capacity to carry some extra kit and make a weekend of it.

The sleek and sporty touring boat lines mean it’s perfect for getting to grips with open water. Bay crossings and estuaries are no trouble in the Easky 15, and what could beat watching the sun set over an open sea?

The Easky 15 is a lot of boat in a smaller package:

Designed with both female and lighter paddlers in mind, you will find both a comfy, fit and a high performance kayak in the Easky 15 LV (Low Volume). The LV is both narrower and lower-in-rise than the regular 15. Even beginners will quickly take to paddling open crossings, marshes and flowing river waters with ease thanks to it’s sleek and sporty lines and easy, predictable handling.

Both the Easky 15 &15 LV give you plenty of options:
• If the breeze picks up and brings waves, or theres a small swell
pushing through, the sleek nose will cut through the waves while
the boat stays rock-solid stable .
• If the weather turns cooler, all you need to do is grab some warmer
clothes from under your deck elastic and carry on.
• If the water is mirror flat, you’ll appreciate just how far you can paddle
with an Easky.

You’ve got a long way to go but it feels like a paddle in the park in the Easky 17. Whether you’re out from shore in open water, cutting through the swell to the other side of the bay or you’re at the start of a three day river journey on glassy-smooth water, you’ll barely break a sweat.

 

The long, sleek touring hull feels as effortless as a thoroughbred sea kayak but it’s still as easy to paddle as a tourer. With this speed and efficiency, it’s also a great load carrier: if you need to pack in enough equipment for a couple of nights in the wilderness, the long running length means your cargo will hardly even affect how it paddles.
