ABOUT BAIDARKA GT
In the 1700’s, Russian sailors sailing the Aleutian Islands gave this uniquely-shaped kayak the name „Baidarka” meaning „small boat”.
The lower portion of its upswept bow is extremely narrow, allowing for clean entry lines, while the upper bow is fuller and wider, increasing buoyancy, causing the Baidarka to rise over the oncoming waves. Baidarkas are known for their unusually fast speed. With their Swede form shape and high volume stern they produce an incredibly high hull speed. The Baidarka GT Kayak introduced for 2012 season is designed keeping touring in mind for day/ weekend trips or even a smaller expedition. The specially designed narrow hull provides you with incredible speed, what was one of the original ideas of these extremely different kayak designs – getting fast from A to B whilst enjoying the ride!
