      We start with our Simple Single Person Kayak, which is a real basic design. It's really maneuverable and a little bit shorter at only 260 centimeters, whereas the Standard is almost 3 meters. Our Simple kayak has no seat, 2 scupper plugs, a couple twist hatches, handles front and back, and also on the sides. On the back, it has a very small but larger enough bungee area to strap down a dry bag if you wanted to bring some gear along. Again, the best thing about this model is its maneuverability because it's so easy to turn. You can even get into some little waves on it thanks to its nicely designed hull. It's also really easy to chuck in the car or strap on the roof since it only weighs 19 kilograms. All in all, a budget-friendly, really easy kayak.

      Next, we have our Second Generation Standard Single Person Kayak. This is a little bit redesigned from our previous standard kayak. It's about 3 meters long but has a bit sleeker and not quite as wide outline as our previous model, which makes it faster but just as stable. It has a more elegant look to it as well. It still has the twist hatches for storage, handles front and back, and handles on the sides with paddle holders. Plus, it comes with our adjustable removable seat, which just clips right into the D-rings. It has 2 flush rod holders in the back in case you want to do some fishing and also a nice large storage area with bungee tie downs. All-in-all, this is a really nice option for rentals or kayak fishing. It weighs a bit more than our Simple kayak at 23 kilograms so it's a little bit harder to carry around, but still pretty easy for one person to manage.
