The Stellar SR (Stellar Racer) is stable and fast for those paddlers looking to transition from a touring kayak or those who want more stability from a surf ski in rough conditions. A greatly narrower catch and reduced volume footwell help to modernize this popular surf ski. We moved the paddler forward to catch waves easier as well as increasing the bow deck volume a little to release from the waves easier. We kept the same hull shape below the water that paddlers raved about! The beauty of the SR is that its allows you to keep your paddling rhythm without bracing, which keeps the hull speed at a higher constant rate than if you were in a racing ski and had to brace. A water bottle holder in the cockpit and handles in the bow in stern round out this amazing boat.

Description: Single skin laminate hull made of Carbon & Kevlar® fabric, with clear gelcoat finish, and the deck is the standard Advantage construction. The hull is designed to be flexible and durable, but creates a stiff boat that can take some abuse in the class I and II rapids and shallows, but is also at home in the ocean or the flats. The Surf Ski Multi-Sport construction comes standard with an over-stern rudder and fittings for an under-stern rudder, as well as a flush mounted Andersen mini-bailer.
