The Stellar S18S is an 18′ entry level surf ski with great top end speed from the S18R hull design, along with the stability that you have come to associate with a Stellar. With 2 dry storage compartments, the S18S is not only a Surf Ski, but also a capable touring kayak. We have added cockpit carry handles to make maneuvering this boat on land as easy as it is on the water! As a standard feature, the S18S is outfitted to accept a kick-up rudder for those who paddle in shallow areas. The S18S also meets the specifications for the USCA Fast Sea Kayak division if you wish to race.

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.
