Corran like always been very innovative and has questioned everything he has done before, and why the end result the designs of the plastic kayaks currently available and the custom composites, how they paddle the comfort of the outfitting and paddler statisfaction of these boats, that said these kayaks will not be all kayakers, if you liked Corrans designs from the past then you will probably really like these boats. Corran has lined his boats in areas which have been missing of late, like small childrens boats, a tandem for perhaps overzealous paddling parent wanting to pass on their enthusiasm for kayaking to their youngsters, playful river runners and a sporty creeker.
The Mini ME is designed to easy, forgiving and was designed from the ground up for children between 2-8 years old. This is a very small kayak but the boat is well designed and the most forgiving little persons boat on the market. The outfitting is has been designed to be supportive and hard wearing so will last as your child grows. The Seat is a Mini Power Seat, just no where near as agressive and the adult version, this has a non slip Orange Seat pad on it which offers insulation, non slip and extra comfort. The footrest is very easy to adjust. This boat retails at £749 with an intro offer of £649 which when you think it will last for many years and will be alot easier to paddle than a boat thats too big, lighter makes it a pretty good investment for keen young paddlers & Parents. Demo is available.
This is the perfect way to get your youngster into kayaking. By moving the front child seat closer to the adult so you can reassure them and still reach them if needed. I would always recommend paddling with a spotter in another kayak to keep an eye on them, and obviously start slow, lakes pools canals etc, and gradually move up when they are ready and stop if they are not having fun come back another day. Also I would be realistic with the grades that you are happy paddling and then reduce it a couple of grades. THis is retailing at £1399 and White Water Consultancy have an intro offer currently at £1259.95 and a demo available.
