Kayaking fun for all abilities.
Necky designed the Rip 10 Kayak to instill confidence in new 'yakkers while keeping veteran paddlers happy. Sharply keeled on the bottom and now with a drop-down skeg, the Rip 10 tracks when the wind picks up and darts in and out of inlets if you're by the shore. Perhaps best of all, giving the Rip 10 a home won't break the bank, which leaves you with a few extra sheckles to buy a paddle and PFD.
The polyethylene hull is designed to withstand the beatings from beginner paddlers. Novice to seasoned 'yakkers alike will relish the roomy cockpit, making entries and exits almost graceful. Foam thigh pads are designed to accommodate bracing above or below the cockpit rim. Between the Comfort Flex seat and Support Track foot brace system, you'll be able to adjust the fit to perfectly match your shape and size.
Once you get a few paddles under your belt, plan a picnic at the island in the middle of the lake. The stern hatch, watertight due to the combination of the gasketed Quick Seal rubber cover and cross-lock straps with a single, large buckle, is the perfect place to stash a dry bag with a blanket and delicious nibbles. Drag your boat on the bank, safely store your paddle in the bow bungee rigging, and enjoy the serenity of a quiet lunch.
