Tribe 9.5

An affordable, easy to paddle, and great looking sit-on-top, the most surprising thing about the Tribe 9.5 is just how great it paddles. It performs terrific in surf and rough ocean conditions, but is also speedy and maneuverable on flat water and lazy rivers. With side handles built-in plus additional bow and stern handles, carrying and car topping is a breeze.

The Tribe is a low-maintenance kayak, but don't mistake simplicity for slow and bulky. It offers speed, control, and comfort. The ergonomic design puts the paddler's feet level with the body rather than at an awkward angle. Ample storage opportunities, including a new aftermarket hatch indication will have you living in the moment while thinking about what adventures next weekend will bring.
