Expedition kayaking in the Breaksea

I think the Breaksea is a great expedition kayaking boat for advanced paddlers – it’s super fast, surfs nicely and
is big enough to carry two months worth of food and gear at a time. I personally think it’s a great expedition boat! I love the day hatch behind the seat for easy access, and the one in front is handy for small items. Paddling this boat will quickly show your weaknesses, which is always good for developing your paddling skills. It feels best when it’s loaded as it sits lower in the water and feels more stable, and weight does not slow it down at all. In Fiordland I felt comfortable paddling my Breaksea, knowing that I could run from the storms and get off the coast fast if I needed to. Speed was a bigger priority for me than stability.
