A sit-on-top kayak that lets you stand up and paddle, the Ocean Kayak Nalu hybrid paddle board delivers a different kind of fun on the water. With the Nalu, paddlers can sit in the hybrid molded-in seating area and paddle just like in a traditional sit-on-top kayak. However, they can also use the Nalu like a stand-up canoe, giving them an entirely different perspective. The dual-use design--which is stable in both flat water and moderate surf--makes the kayak an ideal choice for beginning to intermediate paddlers and paddle boarders.
The Nalu's hybrid design lets you stand up and paddle as an alternative to sitting.
The kayak is made of medium-density polyethylene, a virtually indestructible material that's somewhat flexible (so it doesn't crack), but also maintains its stiffness thanks to Ocean Kayak's compound curves. The materials are complemented by a California-form tri-hull design, which includes a long center keel area that encourages boats to track straight when paddling and coasting. The result? A kayak that steers well and is easy to control on the waves regardless of whether you're just starting out or are an experienced paddler. The kayak's unique sit-on-top design, meanwhile, allows you to enter and exit the kayak easily from the shore, dock, or water. In a sit-on-top kayak, you can safely enjoy all the pleasures of kayaking without having to learn difficult self-rescue maneuvers.
Other details include comfortable foot wells to keep you stable, molded-in integral fins, a pair of carrying handles for easy transport, and an on-deck storage bungee. The Nalu is available in sunrise, yellow, and lime colors.
