Our Usutu sit-on-top whitewater kayak is perfect for kayak schools, operators, guides, beginner kayakers, and especially those paddlers who enjoy whitewater but for whom whitewater is not their primary discipline so they have not nailed whitewater skills like rolling. It is perfectly socially acceptable to be a sit-on-top whitewater paddler.
The Usutu allows you to develop skills like ferry gliding and catching eddies and to build confidence. It is forgiving and, best of all, if you fall off, you can climb back on without having to empty the kayak.
In this video, Lisa takes a swim and with a hand on each of the side handles, she quickly flips the Usutu upright and climbs back on.
