The Rebel is designed for paddlers of both genders up to 70kgs. After discussions with a number of top multisporters and adventure racers, it was discovered that there was a need for a faster yak for paddlers who find the Firebolt too big.


At 5.65 metres long, the Rebel is half way between the length of the Swallow and the Firebolt and is faster than them all. It’s the perfect kayak for women or younger paddlers who really want to be competitive.

Demo Kayaks – due to the low sales number of this kayak I don’t have a demo boat available. 

Ordering – I work on a 3 week turnaround. In many cases I will be able to supply before the three weeks is up however, these are a hand-made product so they do take time to produce and we often have multiple orders in the system. I will advise you of an eta at the time of ordering.

Shipping and Pickup– I am based in Mount Maunganui and kayaks can be picked up directly from my workshop. Shipping throughout NZ and the world and will be charged at cost. Please ask me for an estimate.

Colours Fiberglass – all fiberglass kayaks come with a white hull. This looks smart and doesn’t show up as many scratches caused by rocks. The deck can be either a single, block colour (great if you want to display sponsors logo’s) or your choice of two colours that are faded together. Please note that the colours are mixed in with the resin at the time of laying up the kayak so not everything is possible. At the time of ordering I will discuss the options with you and make recommendations if necessary.  

Composite Colours – all of our composite kayaks have an exposed hull (clear gelcoat) to show off the beauty of the fibers. The deck is your choice of colour just like the fiberglass model. I prefer to have this coloured to prevent the sun from heating it up too much but if you wish I can also do the top with a clear coat.
