Fiberglass 14ft kayak that is well suited for someone with a weight of 45-70kg. I brought it 4 years ago however stopped paddling and has now been undercover in storage for a little under 2 years. It has multiple scuff marks along the hull which were present when I bought the boat however these do not affect the performance of the boat. It is well maintained and in good condition. I would not recommend this for someone over the height of 6ft as they will find it a struggle to fit comfortably. 

The paddles are a carbon fiber epoxy blade that was custom made for me. They are McDowell racing paddles that I bought alongside my kayak. they are well suited for any paddler, however do not have an adjustable length. they are extremely light weight and I had no issues with use.

Used for competitions at the Blue Lake and also Lake Karapiro
