Nigel Dennis Kayaks, (NDK, Anglesy, North Wales): Nigel Dennis designs. Super fit, very neutral, expands safety box, relaxed and comfortable in bumpy water, easy rolling. More of our coaches and guides have paddled these boats than any other kayak made. These are durable, rugged, do everything, day/play/expedition grade boats that are surprisingly suitable for athletic beginners. The intermediate's rough water confidence is increased, enhancing your skills and ability to paddle lumpy seas... and we like to paddle them too!
NDKs were chosen in Sea Kayaker Magazine's 2008 and 2011 Reader's Choice Awards --
The Explorer is the baseline expedition boat known for its rough water stability, comfort in conditions and carrying capacity in a smaller boat. No other boat produced today has been paddled in as many new and wild waters as the Explorer.
These lower volume kayaks are specifically designed for the lighter paddler with day paddling loads. The hull is narrower offers more speed while keeping its full waterline engaged while day paddling with lighter loads. With its new bumps, we've seen lots of 175 lb paddlers in the Expedition; yet its narrowness allows the 100 lb paddler to use its full length for expedition speeds. These kayaks roll like a dream, behaves like all the NDKs in bumpy water, is easily turned and controlled in the wind. The Expedition now holds the female record for paddling around Ireland and Anglesey - its got the volume to travel. All with new seat which comes in 3 sizes, and new composite skeg box.
The great Explorer stability and success for those under 160 lbs with a smaller cockpit to enhance fit. It's an Explorer with a lower deck.

This is the Explorer hull with a higher deck and knee bumps for those seeking greater knee height which allows for looser hips; for paddlers seeking a full volume expedition grade kayak that has proven itself on world expeditions.
Full Romany performance of easy turning, solid surfing, and high secondary stability but for the bigger guys and gals in a playful 16' 4", large cockpit design. We've sold this model to paddlers up to 6'5" and 265 lbs to date.
The Romany Surf is a performance Romany for those 175lbs plus, or those seeking greater load capacity but in a playful 16'4" length with more cockpit room, more glide speed with wider stern and a bit more adge for carving.

The Old Town Cayuga's are performance recreational boats. Designed by Necky and Old Town's professional designer/paddler's Spike & Murray, these boats have many of the same high secondary stability traits of the modern sea kayaks, but in a user friendly wider hull, and simple, solid, do anything design. I prefer the 130 personally for its fun factor. Take these surfing, rock gardening, put your inexperienced friends in them, and get out on the water. The boats have the safety of multiple bulkheads, but mostly they are just... fun to paddle!
A modern sea kayak's super secondary stability, but in a user friendly wider hull.
MIKCo's really likes the Manitou 14's with its double bulkheads and full modern sea kayak attributes of high secondary stability. Designed by Necky and Old Town's professional designer/paddler's Spike & Murray, these boats combine the modern sea kayak's super secondary stability, but in a user friendly wider hull, with a simple, solid, do anything design. Take these surfing, rock gardening, put your inexperienced friends in them, and get out on the water. The boats have the safety of multiple bulkheads, but mostly they are... fun to paddle! These are real boats with the inherent safety of a quality manufacturer in an effective and well received design.
But we always have new boats coming in.
