Current Designs Karla Kayak

Available in Store


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.

I love this kayak! I was lucky enough to try one out at Jordan River for a day of surfing and it completely blew me away. Secondary stability is great on this boat and edging and carving on the wave was excellent. I would recommend this kayak for anyone looking to take their surf game up to the next level or anyone who wants to have a blast playing on the flat water!
