It is your responsibility to ensure that you have a valid license
/ permission from the relevant authorities to
use water craft on UK's waterways, rivers, lakes, etc. Not all inland
water is open to paddlers, some access points are privately owned
or is bounded by
land which is private, so do check beforehand. Membership of a
canoe union / club is very beneficial.

Single seater multi-role hybrid folding kayak / canoe
Kayak / Canoe
A very innovative foldable boat that can be used as a kayak or as a canoe! This hybrid paddles faster than typical inflatable kayaks, and is more stable than folding kayaks.
Smart-1" has a duralumin longitudinal keel and cross rib frame
pieces with brackets made of stainless steel, which significantly improves
the kayak's reliability, strength and endurance. The boat skin is one piece as with all folding kayaks - the hull being the same as in typical folding kayaks. Only the side walls are inflatable as in inflatable kayaks. This boat can be used
as a stable single seater, with the seat centrally positioned.
Two different types of seats can be fitted - the standard inflatable floor seats (same as supplied with the Neris folding kayaks), or canoe type wood bench seats.
There are thigh straps which assists with kayaking. Cross ribs also act as foot braces.
The hybrid comes standard with one 100 x 55 x 25cm backpack but should you plan to travel on planes, then you can request to have two compact backpacks weighing 8 and 12kgs
The "NERIS Smart-1" has a hybrid design, being part folding kayak and part inflatable kayak. The boat is very easy to assemble, with the frame members essentially reinforcing the 'inflatable kayak'. The frame is made of high quality D16T grade
anodized duralumin tubing. The skin is made entirely of durable PVC which does
not absorb water, so after a paddle, simply wipe with a dry cloth and
the kayak is ready to be packed. The
cross ribs in the cockpit area are of the open design, which means you
can sit anywhere within the cockpit.
The kayak / canoe will still remain afloat should one or both inflation chambers deflate as the side walls are held up by the cross ribs, giving you time to get back to shore.

will be discontinued when a refined single seater version
with smaller diameter side tubes
comes out during Summer 2018.
