The Skimmer 128’s touring style hull and Trylon construction allow it to easily outpace other kayaks in its class, and its low seat-pan and comfortable outfitting make you feel totally connected with the boat.
Fully-featured from bow to stern with a generous bow hatch, two day hatches and (optional) rudder, the Skimmer 128 is designed for serious paddling, and anglers will be overwhelmed by the outfitting opportunities this lightweight SOT has to offer. The Skimmer 128 comes standard with retractable rudder.

This isn’t a review of the performance of the Hurricane Skimmer. It’s more about the people who love their Hurricane Skimmers.
This is a fantastic interpretation of modern kayak for people in the modern world.
Pride and Place in the Library/Man Cave - Hurricane Skimmer 128
Many Skimmer paddlers are time poor, kayaking provides an opportunity to escape the modern pressures we place on ourselves. The Skimmer design is a realistic and safe option for a broad range of environments: from paddling down a quiet river to lasting memories of paddling with dolphins on the Mornington Peninsula
If you don’t believe me that the Hurricane Skimmer Inspires people ...Then ask Ted, he bought a boat shed...

The large open cockpit and rear well is ideal for medium size dogs. A number of passionate Skimmer paddlers have been delighted in taking their fur children for a paddle , creating another enjoyable experience.

There is no such thing as a perfect kayak. There are faster, more stable heavier kayaks. But the Hurricane Skimmer range strikes a balance between efficient hull design and realistic stability and a comfortable enjoyable paddling experience with a relatively dry ride. Which is unique for a sit on top kayak.
