Honouring our founding vision our professional sea kayaks are built by a local Papuan team.
Our kayaks are built in the RARCC fiberglass workshop from specially designed molds, donated by Kaskazi Kayaks in South Africa.
These kayaks are made of modern hand layup fiberglass and under the instruction of our resident fiberglass expert, selected teams of local Papuans are responsible for the construction of their own kayaks, providing them the opportunity to learn valuable new skills for the future.
The kayaks come with large loading capabilities, rudder control and a long sleek design ideal for sea kayaking.
We are skilled in producing 3 models:
- sit-on-top single kayak (not available for rent at present)
- sit-inside single kayaks
- sit-inside double kayaks
|Single Kayak||Double Kayak|
|Load capacity||160 kg||260 kg|
|Weight of kayak||28-31 kg||45-50 kg (!)|
|Front Hatch size||30cmX30cm (Oval Shape)||30cmX30cm (Oval Shape)|
|Rear Hatch size||30cmX40cm (Oval Shape)||30cmX40cm (Oval Shape)|
