Description and Details

Description     Specs

The Karla is the third collaboration between Danish designer Jesper Kromann-Andersen and Current Designs. This installment brings even more nimbleness and wave riding capability to the paddler. Compared to the Sisu, the Karla is slightly shorter and narrower with additional volume in the bow as added measure against pearling. The Karla is a user friendly kayak to being your exploration of the surf zone and facilitate your adventures. Expert paddlers will equally appreciate this dynamic design.

Materials

Aramid
Weight: 48lbs

  You’ll notice the lightness of Current Design's aramid kayaks the first time you pick one up. You’ll also appreciate its easy lift on and off the car and its intimate responsiveness on the water. Aramid is an optional layup for Performance Touring models.

Originally developed by the aerospace industry to manufacture strong, ultra-light components, Current Design's composite lamination uses a high-pressure vacuum to eliminate any excess resin, which improves strength and decreases weight. They also utilize 3-D non-woven core materials in specific places to reinforce and strengthen areas without adding any substantial weight. This hands-on labor-intensive process results in lightweight, extraordinarily tough kayaks with an exquisite finish. All Current Designs composite kayaks have composite seams joining the deck and hull. This stronger and lighter technique of seaming was formerly available for an additional charge. Now, composite seams are our standard of excellence on all composite kayaks.


Fiberglass
Weight: 52lbs

  Current Design's vacuum-bagged fiberglass layup is a notch above most other fiberglass kayaks on the market. The result is a superbly crafted composite kayak that’s impeccably finished inside and out. Fiberglass is the standard layup for our Performance Touring models.
