The weights indicated on our website are as provided by the manufacturers. Manufacturers provide an average weight for each model of kayak but have cautioned that, depending on slight variations in the amount of materials used, the weight may vary from time to time.
It should also be noted that some manufacturers provide the weight of the kayak prior to adding rudders, seats, hatches etc. so in some cases the fully equipped kayak may weigh more than the actual hull weight provided by the manufacturer.
If in doubt one should always attempt lifting the kayak themselves prior to purchase to determine your ability to handle the kayak.
