The Wisper is the most recent addition to our line of folding kayaks.

The Wisper has elegant flowing lines with upswept bow and stern. It may be described as a cross between our popular Kahuna models and our Greenland design Khatsalano. The Wisper is similar in weight to the Kahuna, yet longer and narrower. Gear storage volume is about the same. It is nimble, with a fast cruising speed, and carves turns easily with a lean. Equipped with cockpit bracing bars, it has a solid fit for medium and smaller paddlers.

PackTwo weights of skin are offered on the Wisper.

For the paddler who is able to take care when approaching rugged terrain, or only doing light day trips, choose the lighter weight skin. The light weight deck and hull fabric are approximately 20% lighter than the standard weight Duratek and Polytech. The hull is reinforced with the standard solid urethane strips along the keel and chines.

For those doing heartier paddling trips, travelling with a well-loaded kayak, the standard weight skin will be the correct choice.


A strap-on skeg is standard as it is not possible to mount a rudder. The seat is light-weight with inflatable air back and bottom. A comfortable foot bracing platform replaces individual foot braces. A medium stern hatch is standard. The built in coaming system incorporates thigh bracing bars for a firm fit. If you wish to pack the kayak for multi-day camping trips, a bow hatch is an option.Top Side
