The Aries is ideal for anyone looking for a versatile, lightweight and stable kayak to explore the coast line and will excite those looking for a kayak to trip out to tide races to play the sea. The Aries will cater for the day paddler and those that weekend from their kayak will not be disappointed.
Image below with optional sail fitted. Adding a sail to your kayak is a great idea, a sail can increase your range and speed to take the arduousness out of long crossings, but most of all kayak sailing is fun. The thrill of flying across the water in a small boat with the wind in your sail can't be matched.

Super manoeuvrability when surfing and prevents purling.
- Quick resurfacing bow
Splits and sheds water preventing nose burying on steep waves and helps punch through waves on the way through surf.

Direct water onto planing surface and bow allowing for a super-fast pick up on the wave, or when angled, breaking in and out.
- Planing surface and smooth chines in the stern
Forgiving for beginners and when surfing.
