When Nikos Kangelaris (Greece) received his Marimba, he made this super video of the unwrapping. We know our boats and yet we were absolutely captivated watching him discover the many features. We fell in love with our Marimba all over again. Enjoy this unwrapping and walkthrough.

Ray Chaplin took his new Marimba out for a paddle on a very windy Zandvlei in Cape Town. Watch the onboard cam as he puts his back into this fitness paddling session.

We put a Marimba, Kasai, Tarka and Tsomo against each other. Of course, paddler ability has a big role to play too and the two paddlers on the left are stronger than the two on the right. Nonetheless, the Marimba stands as the fastest kayak in our range. The Kasai and Tarka are similar in performance and the sweet Tsomo, being short and wide, is the slowest.
