In the Eddyline Samba you will feel like you are dancing when you slip into the snug keyhole cockpit and feel the effortless acceleration from your paddle strokes.
As a child, Lisa’s father taught her how to Samba. She would stand on his feet as they moved to the intoxicating rhythms of Brazil. We thought of this as we searched for a name for this kayak. Have a little maneuvering to do? Just edge this sweetie on its side and with a stroke of the paddle you will feel her carve like a fine German knife. Need to get across that big channel? Drop the skeg down and feel the rails set in for great straight tracking. Quartering seas or cross winds a bother? Just fine-tune the skeg position to neutralize the problem and keep on with your normal stroke.
“A stable but lively boat for small to medium paddlers, the Samba is a fun kayak that maneuvers well and can provide safe passage in wind, keep up in group paddles, and provide an easy car top due to its light weight.” – Samba Review Sea Kayaker January 2011
Samba is a fully outfitted sea-worthy kayak with perimeter lines, bulkheads and hatches, retractable carry handles, deck bungies and adjustable seat and backband. The backband and our optional backrest are fully interchangeable. She also sports a drop down skeg for a wider range of hull performance. This boat is just plain fun!
