NDK Quantum

NDK Quantum

The Quantum is a fast expedition kayak with a huge load carrying capacity for the medium to large paddler.
 The innovative rudder design self-centers into a recess in the deck when retracted. The Quantum's long waterline and straight rocker enable it to cut through sea conditions quickly and easily. The hull has a Swede form, meaning the widest point is behind the cockpit. Thus the Quantum is stable, even when lightly loaded. We have this new NDK Quantum 50/50 Hybrid now available for demo.

Recommended paddler weight: 150-220 lbs.

NDK Romany

NDK Romany

The award-winning Romany is a responsive, playful, all-around performance boat.
It provides confidence-inspiring stability, tracks well for its length, and is easily handled in wind with a minimum of weather cocking. The Romany’s excellent maneuverability allows for good control in bumpy water or when playing in surf and rock gardens. Its high volume bow reduces plunging into waves. Originally designed as Nigel Dennis’s school boat, the Romany brought the keyhole cockpit, three hatch “shaped ski” design into the general market. Its broad function, high secondary stability, and ease of rolling have kept it as a standard among sea kayaks since its introduction in 1993.

The Romany Series includes: Romany Classic 16’ x 21.5”, paddlers 120-200 lbs; Romany Surf, 16’2” x 22”, paddlers 150-220 lbs; Romany Sport (formerly Surf RM - Rotomolded Plastic) 16’1” x 22”, paddlers 150-220 lbs; Romany Excel 16’4” x 23.5”, paddlers 200-250+ lbs; and Romany LV (Low Volume) 16’ x 21.5”, paddlers 80-140 lbs.

NDK Explorer 3-piece

NDK Explorer

One of the long boat standards, the Explorer set a baseline for an all-day-comfortable, expedition style boat.
With its rugged NDK build quality and large hatch capacity, it has been used on major month long expeditions, including several in the Arctic and Antarctica carrying all supplies with no support. Designed for real world rough water and covering distances, the Explorer is faster than the Romany and somewhat less maneuverable, yet directionally stable with more glide per stroke.The Explorer has a longer bow than the Romany, yet paddles similarly; it maintains the same high secondary stability and great down wave surfing.

The Explorer series includes: Explorer 17’6” x 21.5”, paddlers 150-220 lbs; Explorer HV (High Volume) 21’6” x 21.5”, paddlers 170-240 lbs; Explorer LV (Low Volume) 17’6” x 21.5”, paddlers 100-160 lbs.

NDK Pilgrim

NDK Pilgrim

The Pilgrim is a responsive, fast, and efficient kayak designed for the small or slim paddler.
Its narrow hull offers quick acceleration while requiring far less effort to place and hold up on edge. It is easily turned and controlled, even in strong winds, and rolls exceptionally well, like all NDK Greenland style kayaks. The Pilgrim fits the small kayaker due to its lighter paddler design and narrow beam, and is also comfortable for the taller, slim kayaker due to the knee bumps on either side of the cockpit. The higher knee position increases leverage and power.

The Pilgrim Expedition is the Pilgrim’s longer cousin. It is a slim, fast, and efficient kayak with increased carrying capacity for camping expeditions. Most paddlers will prefer the long cockpit option, which adds 4”.

Pilgrim 16’’ x 19.75”, paddlers 90-140 lbs; Pilgrim Expedition 17’ x 19.75”, paddlers 110-170 lbs.

NDK Echo

NDK Echo

tThe Echo is an expedition and play kayak for smaller paddlers.
A fast, fun boat designed to handle well in wind, surf, and rough water, the Echo replaces the low volume versions of the Pilgrim and Pilgrim Expedition.

Features of the Pilgrim series are inherent in the Echo. Knee bumps just forward of the cockpit provide extra room for long legs or for adjusting your seating position further forward. The cockpit size remains the same as the Pilgrim range. The Echo’s volume has been reduced, resulting in a very low-profile sea kayak.

Recommended paddler weight: 90-150 lbs.

NDK Latitude

NDK Latitude

Part of the Pilgrim series, the Latitude is a narrow expedition kayak designed for the mid-sized or tall thin paddler.
 The Latitude grew out of fact that so many mid-sized paddlers enjoyed the quickness and light edge of the Pilgrim Expedition, but preferred a kayak without the additional width and volume of the Explorer. The Latitude is similar to the Pilgrim Expedition, with the stern being lengthened by 2” (50mm). This extra volume has been added immediately behind the cockpit to reduce the amount that the stern of the kayak squats when being paddled forwards. The Latitude’s extended knee bumps have been moved forward for the longer legged pilot.

Latitude:17’ 2” x 19.75”, paddlers 140-195 lbs.

Rebel Naja

Rebel Naja

Introducing a Greenland kayak for paddlers weighing less than 145 lbs.
 One of the essential design objectives for Naja was to create a Greenland kayak that the designer could not get into. Naja was built with smaller-framed paddlers in mind, especially women. This composite kayak could be called Ilaga’s “little sister”. Naja is shorter, narrower, and shallower than Ilaga, and has an audacious spirit all its own. It’s quick and responsive, and rolls like it never wants to stop.

Rebel Greenland T

Rebel Greenland T and TOC

The Greenland T and TOC are for paddlers who want a low volume Greenland style kayak with a larger cockpit.

The Greenland T and TOC feature classic lines and a hardchined hulls. The front deck is low enough for paddler contact to aid maneuverability and forward rolls, while the rear deck makes for easy layback rolls. There is an extra cord on the rear deck to store a storm or a spare paddle. The Greenland T and TOC have laminated backrests that connect the seat with the top of the back rim. The backrest can be folded to access extra storage. Steel security rods are placed behind the rim for locking the kayak to your roof rack or for a towing system.
