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.

Double seater folding kayak
"NERIS Valkure-2" - a double seater kayak based on the classic German
design. This craft has been proven on several low grade white water expeditions
as well as being fast in marathon races. Suitable to explore the open waterways
(lowland rivers, lakes, reservoirs and seas). It is perfect for a paddle for
the day, and up to long journeys.
The kayak has a standard sized cockpit, and comes with comfortable one
piece inflatable seats with tall backrests. The "NERIS
Valkure-2" has wood cross ribs and duralumin longitudinal frame
pieces with brackets made of stainless steel, which significantly improves
the kayak's reliability, strength and endurance. This kayak can be used
as a stable single seater, with the seat centrally positioned.
The "NERIS Valkure-2" has a hybrid frame of a simple and reliable
design. The boat is easy to assemble, and now incorporates rubber
pole holders in the framework. The frame is made of high quality D16T grade
anodized duralumin tubing. The cross ribs are made of high quality marine
birch plywood, and is covered with a special coating produced by the
Finnish company Tikkurila, which protects the wood against UV radiation,
mildew and fungi. 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.
Number of seats - two adults, or optionally solo paddler. The standard
spray cover has 2 cockpit holes, and comes complete with 2 skirts and
2 cockpit covers. There is a solo paddler variant spray cover available
as optional extra - cockpit hole is positioned centrally.
