Brand New Eddyline Kayak… the Samba

Posted August 3rd, 2010

As a child, Lisa’s father (who just passed away at 94) taught her how to Samba. She would stand on his feet as they moved to the intoxicating rhythms of Brazil. We thought of this as we searched for a name for our newest kayak.

You will feel like you are dancing when you slip into the snug keyhole cockpit and feel the effortless acceleration from your paddle strokes. Have a little maneuvering to do? Just edge this sweetie on its side and with a stroke of the paddle you will feel her carve like fine German cutlery. Need to get across that big channel? Drop the skeg down and feel the rails set in for great straight tracking. Quartering seas or cross winds a bother? Just fine-tune the skeg position to neutralize the problem and keep on with your normal stroke.

Samba is a fully outfitted sea-worthy kayak with perimeter lines, bulkheads and hatches, retractable carry handles, deck bungies and adjustable seat and backband. The backband and our optional backrest are fully interchangeable. She also sports a drop down skeg for a wider range of hull performance. This boat is just plain fun!
