In a time when paddlesports brands are trending toward heavier boats, Hurricane Kayaks offers a refreshing contrast. They’ve consistently produced featherweight boats that handle beautifully, thanks to thermoformed Trylon construction.  It’s a light, yet rugged, compound that allows them to create incredibly durable boats that can be transported with ease. This year, we’re continuing to carry some of our most popular Hurricane models and adding some innovative new styles as well. Below are four of our favorite new arrivals from this innovative brand.


Hurricane Sojourn 146

Sojourn 146 $1,499

At 14’6″, this touring boat tracks offers speed, excellent tracking, and plenty of storage space, but weighs in at a relatively lightweight 47 lbs.


Hurricane Skimmer 140 Tandem

Skimmer 140 Tandem $1,399

Get room for two with the stability of a sit-on-top – but not the hefty weight. This boat is a breeze to paddle with two, but can easily be adjusted for solo journeys.


Hurricane Santee 116 Sport

Santee 116 Sport $999

At just 36.5 lbs, this is one of the lightest recreational kayaks available. It features a larger cockpit opening which offers more cargo space, while saving weight. If speed is more your thing, you’ll appreciate its efficient + nimble Swede form hull.

Hurricane Skimmer 120 Propel

Skimmer 120 Propel $2,599

Lightweight, meet hands free. If you’re idea of a good day on the water includes fishing, birding, or photography, you’ve gotta give this pedal driven sit on top a try.

Find one you’ve gotta try? All of these boats are available for demo, so feel free to swing by and take one for a spin (call to check on availability). Plus, mingle with industry experts + get the low-down on all of Hurricane’s lightweight offerings on Saturday, February 17th at our Hurricane Party.
