Ocean Tourer Sea Kayaks

Essential facts about the Ocean Tourer sea kayaks

There are many different sea kayak designs (hundreds) because there are just as many uses and conditions.

Our Ocean Tourer sea kayak designs have been tested around 1,000’s km’s of Hong Kong coastal waters, in a huge range of conditions by Sea Kayak Hong Kong. We have literally kayaked the entire coast of Hong Kong in these kayaks.   This gives us absolute confidence in selling any of these kayaks under our brand. 

The Ocean Tourer range of kayaks are a minimum of 5.0m in length, with 3 water tight bulkheads for  safety in open water conditions and paddling long journeys. They are fast and stable, perfectly suited for a range of different kayaking skills, from beginners to advanced sea kayakers. 

We only sell plastic kayaks. These are genuinely more robust than composite kayaks, which although lighter, do not give you the ability to land on any type of coastline, from sandy beaches to rocky foreshore. This is inherantly a safety consideration as well as a practical one.

We get them manufactured in 2 different layups, specifically to create the stiffest and strongest kayaks possible. 
Stiffness makes a sea kayak perform significantly better than a soft, maleable one. It will be faster through waves and on flat water, behave better in winds and waves and in general be lighter (easier to carry) than the softer plastics, as they need more plastic to do the same job, with less effectiveness. 

The single layer HDPE (High Density (Polyethalene) Plastic) is stiff compared to most other single layer sea kayaks you will find in Hong Kong, which in general are made from the much softer LLDPE plastic (Low Density). This is our base model which is cheaper to manufacture, so we pass those savings on the our customers.

The 3 layer HDPE foam sandwich layup is by far the best. It is stiffer and lighter than the single layer HDPE as each layer of plastic of the outer layers are thinner than the single layer HDPE, while the high density foam sandwiched between the 2 HDPE layers provides added rigity, without any weight.
