Viking kayaks finally landed at Escape Watersports a few weeks back.
Following a long haul from New Zealand, it wasn't long before they were being eyed up by our resident Kayak Angler, Grant.
So a Viking Kayaks Reload was set up with a rudder, loaded onto Grant's car, and set off for a weekend in West Wales. Here's what Grant had to say:
"Quick, smooth, and really easy to paddle".
"When I first saw the Reload, I was instantly impressed with the central Tackle Pod that comes as standard with the boat. This is a definite plus point for any kayak angler, as you no longer have to spend time unplugging electrics and taking kit in and out, you simply pick up the Tackle Pod and stick it in the car!".
The sides have been designed so that you aren't catching your hands while you paddle. You get a really smooth paddle stroke, lots of speed, and has already made my paddling more confident!".
"Once you've got your Tackle Pod set up, the Reload is a 'grab-and-go' kayak. It's perfect for spontaneous fishing trips, and will be great on a couple of multi-day trips i've got planned!".
