Caribbean 14 Review Kayak Fish Magazine

Here is a great review of the Caribbean 14 in Kayak Fish Magazine.

Caribbean 14 Review Kayak Fish Magazine – “Eddyline’s stretched-out fishing ride is a sleek, sexy sports car in a pickup truck world.”

The new Eddyline Caribbean 14 looks fast sitting still. It comes in eye-popping colors, in brilliant blue, look-at-me yellow and a shade of red just north of candy-apple. And that shape, the lines, the luscious curves scream out loud. This is not your typical; heavy-hauling fishing kayak. …

The “New” Raven

In the late 1980’s Eddyline introduced a new kayak called the Raven, chosen for the playful nature of this bird. This boat was a departure from typical sea kayak design at the time as Tom Derrer, from his whitewater roots, wanted a more responsive, maneuverable and fun open water kayak. The Raven received kudos from his customers and numerous reviews.

Outside Magazine 1995 & 96 “The Raven is kayakdom’s equivalent to the best German sports sedan. ..it’s the most responsive boat …

Caribbean Kayak Description

This is a good walkthrough of the Caribbean by fisherman, Victor Woolworth.

Bob Bellingham’s 1,600 mile journey on the Missouri River in an Eddyline Shasta

After 1,600 miles I feel I should say something about my experience so far in the “Barbara May” (the kayak, not the wife.) I am not sponsored by or linked to Eddyline the manufacturer of the “Shasta” in any way so the following is my unbiased appraisal. I purchased the kayak solely on the recommendation of Andy Bugh who undertook the same journey last year and then continued on down the Mississippi River to the Gulf of Mexico. Firstly I have to say …

Review of the Caribbean (formerly Calypso) in Kayak Angler Magazine

Forty five pounds of lightweight fish catcher.  At Kayak Angler we love little more than boat news, so we were delighted to get this surprise bulletin from Eddyline. They’ve launched a new fishing-friendly sit-on-top, the 12-foot long Caribbean. Someone’s thinking of palm trees, silky coral sand and azure water.

Like every other kayak built by the Burlington, Washington company, the Caribbean is thermoformed from Carbonlite plastic laminate. The result is a boat that matches fiberglass for looks …

Introducing the New Eddyline Calypso Sit on Top Kayak

Eddyline is proud to announce the release of our new Calypso Sit on Top. At 12 feet in length with a 30 inch beam, the Calypso stability is extraordinary, yet the highly efficient Eddyline hull design and our smooth Carbonlite material lets her glide through the water with ease. Tracking is exceptional for a twelve footer, making travel over distance much easier. Easy turns are accomplished with a slight …

New Calypso Sit on Top

Eddyline’s New Calypso Sit on Top is finally becoming a reality. We are making the mold and should be ready to ship kayaks in November! This picture is a graphic rendering with some of the fishing options. 12ft long – 30″ wide – 45lbs – $1279

Lots of options – lots of stability – lots of performance in the water!

Andy Bugh’s Expedition in the Shasta – update

I just paddled across Ft. Peck Lake, over 130 miles, with waves over three feet and rolling over the Shasta at times. The boat and custom spray skirt functions outstandingly! I was able to keep up with two paddlers traveling with much less gear in a canoe and they are twenty years younger than me. This boat really handles the big water well. I want some bigger waves now! I decided to name my boat the Wave Rider. Thanks Eddyline!!! …

Eddyline’s Brand New Kayak – The Sky 10

The Sky 10 kayak came into existence due to the popularity of our well liked Skylark and the ever increasing demand for smaller, lighter boats. This kayak carries most of the paddling qualities and features of its 12 foot sister but sports a good 5-6 lbs less weight, making car-topping and general handling that much easier.


Samba Review Sea Kayak Magazine

Comments from Sea Kayaker Magazine Review: “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.”

“Surprisingly quick. It has an easy cruising pace of four knots! And this in a kayak under 14 feet long! Now smaller paddlers can paddle a kayak that fits and can keep up …

New Swift High Angle Blade

This newly designed blade is specifically customized to suit the paddler who prefers a high angle performance paddle. It retains all the power and thrust and smooth follow through of the original Sea Swift only with a high angle of attack. Typically these paddles are preferred to be 5-10 CM shorter in length than a low angle blade.

Brand New Eddyline Kayak… the Samba

As a child, Lisa’s father (who just passed away at 94) 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 our newest kayak.

You will feel like you are dancing when you slip into the snug keyhole cockpit and feel the effortless acceleration from your paddle strokes. Have a little maneuvering to do? Just edge this …

Product Change: Skylarks & Sandpipers

In 2008 all Skylarks and Sandpipers have front and rear bulkheads instead of foam pillars. We feel this is an important upgrade in the safety of our recreational kayaks. All boats will now have full flotation in both ends. In the Skylark, access to the front compartment is through a 4 inch Beckson hatch. The Sandpiper has a 6 inch hatch access to the rear compartment and a 4 inch on the bow….
