Norse Idun Sea Kayak
The Norse Idun is a very playful and versatile kayak designed for lighter paddlers, it has enough stability for a beginner whilst also having a level of responsiveness to the sea which will keep expert paddlers smiling. The lightweight V-shaped hull makes it easy to maintain speed and the long firm skeg ensures you keep on course. As with all Norse sea kayaks Idun's hull is reinforced with aramid all the way through her keel and the chines have the same reinforcing, so this boat has great ridgidity and can take a beating. This Norse designed and Greenland inspired sea kayak draws its name from a Norse ledgendary figure the Godess of Spring and rejuvenation.
There are three bulkheads two of which are accessed by good sized day hatches for packing larger equipment. The third smaller bulkhead behind the cockpit can easilly be accessed while on the water and is useful for stowing wet weather clothes to hand in case of squalls and showers. There is also room for cooking kit and food you might need during a rest break on a beach. There is also a convenient small hatch in front of the cockpit which gives access to a mesh bag which is ideal for stowing athe smaller bits and bobs you need while paddling.
The rear deck has storage designed for a Greenland storm stick or a norsaq reflecting the Greenland influence. It is equally at home being paddled with euroblades although a spare set might need to be stored on the foredeck. The oval cockpit makes wet launches and solo re-entry on the water relatively easy. The deck fittings and compass mount are both recessed so the upper deck is sleek and stylish. The Storage hatches are well-designed and renowned for being hard wearing. The signature printed seam tape with Viking motifs is an example of the attention to detail typical of Norse designs.
The Idun paddles well on flat water and with a V shaped hull and hard chines it responds well in lively seas and rough conditions. Intermediate paddlers will find that edging over onto the chines is confidence inspiring and they will be able to hold an edge with ease and control the arc of turn with small weight adjustments. Advanced paddlers will find this kayak to be reliable, responsive and well able to cope with a wide range of sea conditions. These characteristics reflect the Norse heritage - The Idun is designed to cope with seas which are often like glass high up in the fjords but which can be wild on the more open coastlines. This suits the Idun to UK sea kayaking with our unpredicable weather that can change conditions quickly.
All of this at an unbeatable price for a composite sea kayak - you really can't get any better!
