In this video by Timo Lehtonen from Erakettu Oy / WildFoxTrade in Finland, he takes the Kasai and Marimba through their paces. Note how Timo uses paddle strokes to effectively steer and manoeuvre the kayaks and his demonstrations of stability. This was his first time on the water to paddle these boats as they had arrived in Finland only days earlier.

Of the kayaks he writes, “Light weight, fast and stable SOT kayaks from South-Africa. Made by Vagabond Kayaks, designed by Celliers Kruger. Excellent value for money and answer for those who think that most new fishing kayaks are too heavy, too wide, too slow and hard to paddle”.

The Kasai is the tri-colour one (with Angler fittings); the Marimba is khaki.
