CURRENT DESIGNS KAYAKS
Current Designs has been producing quality touring kayaks for years. They're mainly known for their composite kayaks, producing lightweight fiberglass and Kevlar kayaks in styles ranging recreational, transitional, and touring. They also produce a moderate selection of rotomolded polyethylene kayaks for a range of fits and conditions. This page has a selection of Current Designs kayaks we stock, divided by style/purpose of the hull.
Current Designs may have achieved acclaim through their touring kayaks, but they also produce quality recreational kayaks. These rotomolded kayaks are durable, comfortable, and forgiving for those with little-to-no kayak experience, but without being restrictive to those who have been paddling for years and are in search of an easy-going day-tripping kayaking.
The Kestrel family offers some of the most popular recreational hulls in the industry. Kayaks which are nimble and efficient in backwaters, rivers/springs, and even coastal waters on calm days. The Kestrel also has a comfortable carry weight to aid in easily getting the kayak to the water.
Transitional kayaks are designed for the paddler that wants more performance from their kayak, without limiting themselves to 17’ open water kayaks, and sacrificing comforts such as a full backrest. These boats offer many of the comforts of recreational kayaks, but in a slimmed down hull that will be more efficient in the water, and more responsive to the paddlers, beginning to introduce users to concepts such as edging (leaning to one side in-order to steer the boat, rather than interrupting paddle cadence for adjustments).
Current Designs offers a versatile line-up of transitional kayaks with the Vision family. Ranging from 120 - 150, the Vision offers a fit for every size paddler, and boats geared for a variety of conditions and waterways. Whether durability or weight is the biggest concern, the Vision family offers hulls in both durable Polyethylene, and lightweight Composite construction to best suit your needs
This section is where you will find Current Designs’ full-on touring kayaks.

Current Designs offers hulls in Polyethylene, for those who need a large degree of durability, and in composites such as Fiberglass and Kevlar, for those who want to keep the weight down, but also want a rigid hull in the water to boast efficiency.
