As the next size up from the Romany Classic, the Romany Surf is a responsive and versatile kayak for the medium to large sized paddler. As a day/weekend kayak, the Surf offers a shorter, quicker turning boat than the Explorer. The hull design offers high stability and the shaped foredeck allows for large feet up to size 11/12 (Europe 46,5). Designed for rough water and ease of handling in conditions. The kayak has a wider keyhole cockpit than any other British made fiberglass sea kayak and has more volume in the rear compartments than the Romany Classic.
The kayak is fitted with the high performance glass seat, unless otherwise requested and offers extra leg room due to a raised area either side of the cockpit. The seat can be set higher for a smaller paddler and the raised area in the front deck can be padded if needed. The kayak has a low rear deck for easy rolling, a keyhole cockpit that gives excellent grip, control and allows quick exit if need be. The sloping bulkhead behind the seat allows the kayak to be emptied by lifting only the bow, no x-rescue is necessary.
