Each Viking model has been designed and developed to meet the needs and desires of the growing number of recreational kayakers and their families. The Viking range of kayaks are Australian made and come with a 10 year hull guarantee. Made from super tuff polyethylene, these hulls can take the knocks and bumps against rocks without causing damage. And don't forget the range of fishing kayaks available such as the tempo fisherman in a single or double that can also be fitted with 12V Minn Kota motor kits that can be operated with your feet, leaving your hands free to catch fish. New models in the range include the Nemo fisherman and the Predator.
Advantages offered by Viking Kayak models
Safety and Stability. Great stability in all conditions from smooth water to surf means Viking kayaks do not tip readily and are easy to get in and out of even in deep water. A grabline edging the rim provides a handhold, as do bow and stern handles. Deeply contoured, moulded seating gives a wrap-around feel but does not cover or restrain any part of the body. No risk of getting trapped upside down, so no need to learn the eskimo roll. Self-bailing outlets drain water from the cockpit. A choice of vibrant colours provides high visibility.
Versatility and Comfort. Viking kayaks are equally at home in sea, river, lakes and streams. The open top design allows complete freedom of movement and suits most body shapes and sizes. All models are roomy enough for young children (or perhaps the family dog) to accompany adult paddlers. Scupper holes are positioned away from seating areas to help keep the seat dry in calm water.
Strength and Speed. The seamless polyethylene construction of Vikings kayaks is much stronger than fibreglass. It handles everyday knocks effortlessly and is UV stabilised. Underwater contours achieve excellent stability to speed ratio and ensures the kayaks track well with no need for a rudder.
Load Capacity and Lightness. With equipment securing points and hatches to under-deck storage, Viking kayaks are ideal for camping trips, or for carrying gear to fishing and diving sites. All models are designed to be lightweight and can be carried on a car.
