The Ookpik is a very agile recreational kayak. It is ideally suited to exploring winding rivers, lakes, and coastlines. With a larger coaming, the Ookpik will appeal to mid to karge-sized paddlers. Check out the Kasko if you are looking for a tighter fitting kayak. Both Ookpik and Kasko are equipped with thigh braces and a smaller rudder system to maximize ease of control.
