I recently purchased a new member of the SKUK kayak family, the Pulse.

I opted to have a skeg instead of a rudder. This decision was based on the comments from various experienced coaches and kayakkers, who have tested it both withe skeg and rudder.

I wasn't able to test it myself prior the purchase, so I took a leap of faith.

Honestly, I haven't regretted my purchase at all.


I love my Romany Excel. I’m a big guy. 6’5” and 260 lbs. Buying specialist outdoors equipment and clothes is always a painful adventure. Let’s not even talk about hiking boots and ski boots. But the Romany Excel is a godsend.


Good Luck Petr Major who is on his way around Ireland. He is Paddling a Sea Kayaking UK Quantum and using Celtic Paddles.


Whether you're planning an expedition of your own, or just looking to cover some miles and play along the way, the Sea Kayaking UK Explorer is an outstanding performer as you paddle into rougher waters.


OK folks - I'm a big chap, ex. Rugby front row (quite good at the time!) and (I like to think) a pretty reasonable kayaker too. (I have recently lost 8kg with another 10kg to go so it's not all doom and gloom!). There is a point to this!


The expedition was featured in the March edition of The Paddler Ezine.

We are glad to announce that the new smaller plastic Romany Sportive is now in production. This kayak has been designed for the smaller paddler.



These have larger angled foot peddles. These are interchangeable with the current footrests that we use.
