If you’re looking for a kayak that’s easy to paddle, exceptionally stable, tracks well in the water and is ready for all adventures, then the Hug Mini is the kayak of choice.
Perhaps you've been considering our 5.1m Hug Double Sit In Touring kayak but want something shorter & more compact? The cockpit size much larger than the Hug 5.1m also, being higher and a greater internal volume, making for a more comfortable paddling experience especially for the larger paddle. It is also an exceptionally stable sit in kayak that tracks a straight line beautifully. Well you'll be glad you've found the Hug Mini!
With a spacious cockpit design and its focus on comfort, speed and stability, the Hug Mini is an ideal two-seater touring kayak.
Given its flat hull design paired with a foot-controlled rudder system, the Hug Mini is able to glide effortlessly through the water in a straight line.
The design also allows for solo paddling via the rear seat.
Impressively stable, makes it an ideal touring sea kayak for beginners new to kayaking.
Its tracking properties are excellent even in windy conditions or in strong currents, thanks to its deep blade rudder system.
Along with its shorter length, the included foot controlled rudder system allows you to make quick turns to navigate narrow waters, or simply allow you to manoeuvre the kayak quick and easily.
Given its price point and build quality, it's no wonder this kayak is one of Australia's best value 2-person touring kayaks and the choice of many beginner to intermediate paddlers.
