Specialty Kayaks / Tailfin

The Tailfin is an amazing new sit-above kayak designed for the discriminating angler. The Tailfin is all about customization and comfort! The multi-angle, multi-level high back seat is adjustable into a myriad of positions for comfort and function for paddling, casting and hunkering down for a long fight. The Tailfin features Current Designs very own slide mounting rails fitted into the kayak throughout the deck. Attachment of your favorite rod holders, graphs and other accessories is fast and simple with the Current Designs’ universal mounting bracket. It comes with three flip-lock hatch openings and a full length under deck storage compartment. A large, fishing-format friendly aft open compartment accommodates larger tackle and gear. The Tailfin offers rock-solid stability and a cockpit that’s standup friendly. Dual performance outriggers are a standard option with all Tailfins. Add the optional Smart-Track® rudder system for increased maneuverability and control.
