BAFFIN SERIES

The Baffin is built for the rigors of rough seas. Its unique hull design provides paddlers with a lively yet stable boat compared to other Greenland style kayaks. The three models in the series are well suited for a wide range of paddlers who demand immediate control and predictability.

The generous sized opening of the hatch allows paddlers to load up adequate amounts of gear for up to two weeks, while the day hatch keeps your essentials handy while on the water. The Baffin comes with a full compliment of deck rigging and a comfortably outfitted cockpit.

This versatile series makes choosing a kayak a breeze. There are three different sizes, each available in rotomolded plastic, thermoformed ABS or composite construction. See the table below for technical specifications and paddler weight range for each model.

primarys
Primary Stability

Primary stability is a reflection of how stable the kayak feels while sitting still on a calm body of water. A high primary stability is perfect for beginners, photographers and fisherman alike.

secondary
Secondary Stability

Secondary stability is the stability felt while edging the boat (leaning the kayak on one side using your hips). A kayak with a poor secondary will require a stronger bracing technique to edge with confidence.

handling
Handling vs Tracking

There is no right or wrong answer here. A kayak that tracks more (more grey) will be easy to keep on a straight course. A loose kayak (more blue) will be easy to turn on a dime and change direction quickly.

speed
Speed

This is the general speed of the kayak, combining acceleration, cruising speed, top speed and how easy it is to keep.

storage
Storage

This represents the total inside storage volume the kayak offers. Rudder equipped kayaks tend to have more storage compared to skegs that take up some space in the rear hatch. A high rating for storage is perfect for a touring paddler.
