REBEL MINKE JUNIOR K1

The Minke is designed for young people coming in to the sport of flatwater racing. This craft can also be utilised instead of the Rebel 50 or a TK1 for smaller beginning paddlers. It offers a fast stable kayak to allow beginners to concentrate on paddle technique over balance while still moving through the water nicely to inspire confidence. It is a great option for younger teens to combat self-conciousness, by offering K1 styling for those that prefer not to paddle a TK1 but are not yet ready to handle a full K1 boat. These craft come with a protected understern rudder system as beginning paddlers often collide with submerged objects. The 10kg weight of these craft make it easy for smaller paddlers to grab their boat to and from the water.
