The Delta 16 is an intermediate to advanced kayak that will cater to smaller or mid-sized individuals who have been waiting for a full figured British style design built with more dry storage typical of North American designs. The 16 offers two large hatches and one day hatch. The Day hatch is a solid pod that is built into the under-deck. This fore day hatch allows paddlers to keep their cameras and essentials inside of the kayak protected from errant paddle strokes or waves knocking things off the deck. The 16 exhibits good primary stability and very good secondary and given its 22 inch wide profile it has great acceleration to catch a wave. The Delta 16 is a lightweight contender made for paddlers tuning their intermediate to advanced skills.
