Manufacturer's Description

The Caribou is a classic Greenland style design that has a cult-like following.

Receiving some improvements and modifications for 2010, the chines were softened a bit and flat sections were given some curve. The deck was modernized with more flowing lines and the cockpit was shaped to make for easier entry and exit.

Now more stunning than ever, it has amazing intial stability and edge holding capabilities. Couple that with its wave catching powers and you have a great kayak that's fast, nimble, and a pure joy to paddle.

The seat comes with a comfortable padded Immersion Research Reggie backband. A skeg is standard on the Caribou and when deployed, allows this nimble craft to track straight in adverse conditions.

Standard equipment:

  • Black H-channel side seam 

  • Glassed-in bulkheads 

  • Retractable skeg 

  • Sea-Dog foot brace 

  • Back band
