Rockpool Kayaks Review

March 9, 2007

Douglas Wilcox continues his excellent review of kayaks with one on the Alaw and Alaw Bach kayaks from Rockpool.

I want one – an Alaw Bach! I love the full plate footrest  and the built in neoprene at the side of the seat to take foam padding.

These are the kind of details that prove it’s designed by kayakers for kayakers but is now attracting others (Douglas notes the attraction for women…). The same way as sketchup was designed by architects for architects but is now opening up “3D for everyone” as google call it.

The only negatives for me are the hatch covers which are the same as on my kayak and I don’t feel they are secure enough. They have never come off but as they say it’s not the crime it’s the fear of crime… I’d like some clamp down hatch covers.

Also I don’t love the naughties graphics – that’ll age your kayak fast! Hopefully they do specials.

Thanks and credit to Douglas!
