SEA KAYAK NEWS

Kayak News - Who we are. (19/7/2019)
The Kayak News snippets provided here are supplied as a service to the paddling community and is sponsored by PaddleYak Sea Kayak Productions CC and Real Cape Adventures CC. PaddleYak Sea Kayaks are manufactured in Knysna in the Garden Route, South Africa, and are supplied locally and worldwide directly to buyers by phoned orders, as well as emailed and online orders. Real Cape Adventures cc run sea kayak trips and tours throughout Southern Africa and further afield.

PaddleYak Sea Kayak Productions CC is recognised as pioneering and developing a comprehensive hybrid sit-in/sit-on kayak range, the first of which was the PY Swift Hybrid Adventure Kayak which won two national awards for design [ref: Prof M. Bruton: SA Innovations]. The range now includes the PY Swift Double, the PY Fusion, the PY Gypsy, the PY Gypsy Duo Double and the PY TravelYak Split. PaddleYak’s hybrid craft combine features of both sit-in and sit-on craft, making the distinction obsolete. World-renowned adventurer Riaan Manser circumnavigated Madagascar as well as Iceland in these craft, proving their safety, versatility and suitability for all climates in both the Southern and Northern Hemispheres. Many PaddleYak owners regard their personal craft as the best in the world! Laminated in composite materials they not only offer top performances, but also safety, relative lightness and longevity.

Real Cape Adventures CC runs commercial sea kayaking trips and tours in a variety of locations. Their latest offering is the Two Day/One Night Cape Kayak Camino overnighter on the magnificent Plettenberg Bay Estuarine System [ref. Getaway Magazine Nov. 2018]. If there’s one trip you must do when visiting South Africa, it’s this one. Managed by RCA and PY founders Teresa and Johan Loots [author of A Practical Guide to Sea Kayaking in Southern Africa as well as An Essential Guide to Sea Kayaking, available worldwide in five international languages] it offers an opportunity to share their passion for life, kayaking and nature. Over the last number of years commercial sea kayak touring has evolved into a formal mode of travel. In many ways sea kayak touring has been in the vanguard of so-called activity as well as eco-friendly touring. Kayak trips and tours currently on offer from REAL CAPE ADVENTURES and its co-operators includes paddling excursions in South Africa [Cape Town and Plettenbeg Bay], Mozambique, Zanzibar, Mauritius, Madagascar, Malawi and Spain.

Recreational paddlers can select from a variety of PaddleYak Kayak models to suit their needs and those wishing to participate in kayak trips [daily trips] or kayak tours [multi-day tours], will find a number on offer from REAL CAPE ADVENTURES.

Those wishing to establish their own sea kayak tour operations, wherever in the world, or train as sea kayak guides, are also welcome to contact REAL CAPE ADVENTURES for information about their start-up packages and programmes.

Both companies can be viewed on www.seakayak.co.za or emailed at info@seakayak.co.za, or phoned at +27[0]825562520. Both are also official sponsors of TASKS: The African Sea Kayak Society, a non-profit, online forum for sea kayakers. All paddlers are welcome to register as friends of TASKS on www.tasks.co.za to swell its numbers and to contribute to its impact on sea kayak-related matters around Africa. News items from those who registered on TASKS are welcome and may be published on this News page. Those who wish to co-sponsor, assist in managing, make recommendations and propose deserving projects for the society, are invited to do so. Paddlers who have explored any regions of the African coast by kayak are welcome to contribute the details of their trips to a growing record of such trips.
