rigid kayak / surf / touring / solo
Designer: Björn Thomasson
The key words for the Nordr line are light, seagoing, fast, agile – achieved by a combination of moderate initial stability, but lots of secondary, and a slender, hull fine-tuned to soft, easy movements, providing a dry ride in waves, an impressive touring speed, and solid kayak control.
The hull is a bit rounded to combine speed and maneuverability. With inspiration from surfskis (the volume distribution) and their superior handling in waves, the Nordr is highly controllable, weather surfing waves in high speed, or negotiating rock gardens in low.
Nordr M is a competent passage-maker, as well as an exciting play kayak in surf and waves. . It maneuvers precisely and reliably, with no unnecessary weight and volume for wind and waves to act upon. The load capacity is adequate for multi day touring.
