Petrel Play Overview
The Petrel Play is finally a reality! Thorough Sea Trials have been very successful and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. After consulting with a pair of highly trained composite engineers, the layups have been finalized to offer a light but incredibly strong kayak.
The Petrel Play is the result of years of design refinement by Guillemot Kayaks. The smaller sister to the legendary Petrel, the Play has all of the intuitive responsiveness at a shorter length. The Play rewards the experienced paddler with instant and precise response. The novice will enjoy it's confidence inspiring secondary stability. In the open water of the ocean, it is perfectly at home. The hull design catches waves eagerly, often with a single paddle stroke. On flat water it is a joy to paddle. It keeps up with longer kayaks due to its long waterline, yet turns on a dime with subtle inputs. We've done countless demos and the response has been universally one word..."Wow".
Designed by Nick Schade, a Coastal Kayaking Specialist and constructed by a paddler with 20 years of paddling experience, the Composite Petrel Play is unique to the paddling marketplace. Each boat will be constructed for the paddler with fully customizable rigging, custom fitted cockpit and infinite color options.
