Danish Style / Prana

A collaborative effort between Danish designer Jesper Kromann-Andersen and Current Designs award-winning team, the new Prana touring kayak is as much at home in surf and rock gardening as it is to crossing a mirror-like bay. Available in fiberglass and Kevlar layups, the Prana is a quick and highly maneuverable kayak, with an efficient shape that chews through the miles. The hull is more stable than its svelte 21 inch beam would lead you to expect., while a hybrid hard chine and tracking-friendly rocker profile makes this 17 foot touring kayak perfect for all conditions. The Prana is standard with both fore and aft day hatches, fore and aft large hatches and a full accompaniment of safety and comfort. Also available in a LV (low-volume) version.

Dimensions
Swede Form: Widest behind the cockpit, Swede form has a cleaner, longer, and more slender entry, giving efficient touring speeds and maneuverability. In shorter lengths these kayaks are very responsive. Longer kayaks with this feature have amazing acceleration and track well. Because of the narrow bow they may punch through a steep wave, rather than ride over it.
Hull Form
Hard Chine: A hard chine kayak has a well defined edge where the hull bottom meets the sides. This increases the initial stability greatly. Hard chines give defined edging angles and assist in holding an edge.

Shallow V: The ā€œVā€ shape improves tracking, has a lively feel and delivers very comfortable stability.

Hull Shape
Touring Cockpit: Touring cockpits are somewhat small to help resist imploding of the spray skirt if hit by a large wave in rough water. They include built-in thigh braces on the cockpit rim to maximize control when edging and rolling. They range from 29ā€ to 35ā€ long, depending on the model.
