The Legend; a high performance sea kayak
take you anywhere you want to go.
The Legend handles beautifully in
wild conditions and surfs with precision in following seas. The hull provides a
comfortable degree of initial stability, while the chines offer substantial secondary
stability to confidently edge for quick turning, and directional control.
The clipper bow and secondary levels
of buoyancy in the hull make the Legend a dry boat to paddle, while the clean deck
layout, with everything from hatches to safety line anchor points and compass
being recessed, minimizes spray.
The cockpit is roomy inside for leg and foot
comfort, with a comfortable seat. The Legend has expedition carrying capacity,
and is easy to load through the two large oval
hatches, with a round offset "day-hatch" to one side behind the paddler
accessing a separate sealed compartment.

You'll find the Legend generous for foot room, accommodating long legs comfortably. The "comfort seat" that comes as standard is higher at the front than some prefer for "performance" paddling; in which case fit a shorter and flatter foam seat.
You'll notice the skeg control unit and the day hatch are positioned to the left. This is for rougher water control. Right-handed paddlers typically favor bracing for balance holding the paddle in the right hand, which frees the left hand for skeg or hatch, rather than bracing using the left hand.
