 Fenn Swordfish - S - (version 2) carbon hybrid 12.5  rough open water racing & training
 Mirage 580 sea kayak  great for long expedition trips
 Perception Wavehopper - plastic downriver racer  great for learning new whitewater rivers
 Mirage 730 sport (the 58cm wide version) double sea kayak  fast for a double sea kayak with 3 mast steps (fibreglass)
 Mirage 730 (61cm wide version) double sea kayak  cruising sea kayak that holds more gear than the sport version above (kevlar)
 Mission Eco Bezhig plastic sea kayak  cruisy sea kayak trips, rocky island landings & even down white water rivers - it does everything
