My take on the Inuit…
This new sea kayak design is aimed at traditional Greenland-style sea kayak enthusiasts. It’s a collaboration of design by Nigel Dennis and Marc Martin Alcober, the former Greenland Games champion. Together they took the already successful “Greenlander” and redeveloped some key aspects. The result is a kayak that is elegant and simple. The ocean cockpit is complemented by a traditional deck layout, with minimal well-placed deck fittings for storm paddle, Avataq and Norsaq.
This sea kayak is a capable tourer too – but it’s probably going to spend a good deal of it’s life upside-down in the right hands!
My personal experience of paddling the Inuit
Unfortunately, immediately after I had taken delivery of the Inuit, it went out of the door before I got a chance to try it. Shame. So I can’t give personal experience of this kayak. Suffice to say that it looked really cool.
Is there a downside? An ocean cockpit takes a bit of getting used to, especially landing and launching.
Here’s how Sea Kayaking UK describe the Inuit
Our rolling kayak has been designed to be used as a touring kayak as well as having good rolling characteristics. It is an easy kayak to roll along traditional Inuit design.
