BEST SELLER (together with the Santee 116 Sport)
The Santee 116 is a lightweight thermoformed kayak offering surperb tracking for a medium recreational kayak.
Slightly leaner and longer and therefore faster than the Santee 100 the Santee 116 also offers front and rear bulkheads providing plenty of storage and additional buoyancy. The immaculate exterior and padded adjustable seat are standard features of the Hurricane range.
Just as tough but lighter than Polyethylene and cheaper and tougher than Fibreglass, Kevlar or Carbon this is a must for the recreational paddler looking for the best in a small recreational kayak.
Maybe your right arm is stronger than your left; maybe your body tilts east when you really wanna go west; or maybe your personal gyroscope hasn’t worked since the ’90s. Whatever the case, the inability to paddle your recreational kayak in a straight line makes your experience on the water, well, challenging. Not to worry. We solved that problem with the Santee 116, a rec kayak that’s easy to paddle in a straight line! The Swede form design makes it simple (and fun and rewarding and spirit-lifting) to get from point A to point B . . . without wandering to all points in-between.
You can toss enough gear in the ample rear hatch for a serious day trip, hit a river or lake or coastal inlet, and cut a smooth steady trail across the water. As a bonus, you won’t tear a rotator cuff putting the 116 on your roof rack because it tips the scales at a svelte 17.5kg's. (Spoiler alert ― the Santee 116 won’t fight you when you paddle. It’ll work with you, so you’ll end up having a blast.)
