Although children will love playing on the Kasai and paddling it around, the Kasai is a substantial kayak that they will find to be heavy to move and manoeuvre. They will not experience the performance or responsiveness of this kayak purely because it will be too big for them. Children are best suited to paddling our Kwando or Tarka kayaks.
The Kasai’s large rear Tankwell is perfect for your dog. Take more than one small dog out for a paddle or a medium-to-large sized dog. There is enough space for your dog to lie down. Line the tankwell with a foam mat to prevent their paws sliding so that they can sit upright to enjoy the scenery.
The Kasai is a dream on flatwater. Its four-metre length gives it superb speed.
The Kasai is great kayak for touring with decent speed, and lots of stability, comfort and storage space for multi-day trips.
Solid and stable, and with plenty of space, Kasai is a great fishing kayak. If angling is your sport, we recommend our Kasai Angler version, which comes with two flush-mounted Rod Holders, Deck Rails and an Anchor Trolley.
On the ocean, the Kasai performs superbly. Thigh Straps attached to the Clip Rings will keep you on the deck should a wave catch you by surprise and they allow for greater control. Use the Tankwell, 8″ Screw Hatches and 8″ Day Hatch to securely stow gear. From short to long-distance expeditions, the Kasai is an excellent seaworthy kayak.
The Kasai enjoys surfing smaller waves, but for real wave surfing, get our Dumbi kayak instead.
We don’t recommend paddling the Kasai from a standing position but we do recommend standing up on the Stand-Up Platform to stretch your legs while you’re out on the water.
