The Illusion was designed for  performance. We listened to what the experienced instructors, guides and kayakers wanted and set out to produce a kayak that would surpass their expectations in wind, waves and combined coastal conditions.


Their list:

  • Light and strong
  • Easy to roll
  • Responsive in all conditions
  • Safety rigging
  • Trouble free skeg
  • Boat control by¬†edging¬†and stroking

Fit preferences by build, so we have multiple combings offering different depths in the thigh area and additional padding in the thigh and hip areas for a personal fit.
