Celliers’ years of experience paddling and designing have yielded an aggressively performing boat with confidence-boosting stability so you can charge hard into rapids without worrying about catching edges and flipping.Paddlers will find the Vubu to be an incredibly nimble boat allowing them to make precision moves, easily turning and pivoting through complex rapids to hit their lines.The Vubu has peaked front and back decks to resurface with control.The hull of the Vubu has been designed to stay on track on flatwater and to respond instantly to paddle strokes when direction change is critical.Bird's-eye-view of our whitewater outfitting showing the spine, backrest, hip pads and ratchets. The spine and seat are made from carbon fibre / glass / epoxy resin.Our whitewater outfitting showing the spine, backrest, hip pads and ratchets. The spine and seat are made from carbon fibre / glass / epoxy resin.Our backrest provides support and comfort. Use the ratchets to tighten the backrest against your back for a supportive fit.Your kayak comes with additional foam pads (hip pad shims) that slot in behind these hip pads so that you can customise your fit to be snug.The seat can be adjusted forwards and backwards to fine tune your seating position.Our footrest is rotomoulded from polyethylene plastic (same as the kayak). The footrest rails are easily adjusted and are fixed in place by two knobnuts on either side. The foam pillar supports deck and hull. It keeps the hull stiff and prevents deck from folding in the case of a pin. Shown here is the rotomoulded footrest. Your kayak also comes with footrest foam. This is a double-layer foam with 40mm soft foam to absorb impact, and 6mm hard foam that your feet press against to spread the impact load.The Umko Whitewater Festival takes place on the Umkomaas River.
