Kayaking on Wimbleball Lake
Local kayak manufactures FATYAK couldn’t resist taking their kayaks out in the snow…. And here is their report!
It seemed the snowfall was too good an opportunity to pass up for some of our guys in the factory. We sent them out on our Fatyaks to see how they faired in the snow. Their reports as follows:
Fatyak Surf – The surf is by far the best. Easiest to carry back up, can turn by shifting body weight, but a paddle helps. Brakes (feet) will stop you on most slopes quickly, and on a medium slope you can get up to 40mph ish.
Fatyak Kaafu – I think the Kaafu would be great to try standing up!!!
With a bit more practice I reckon I could start carving through the snow, I managed to get some turns in a little – but the surf is the kiddie!
Fatyak Mahee – Mahee is for speed only. No control but a great thrill. All boats are fast, but the bigger you go, the more fear you experience. The Mahee is not for the weak hearted.
