Stealth on the west coast

Post by Adamis » Fri Mar 04, 2016 11:52 pm

I am sure it has been asked before, but does anyone know how I could get go on a stealth kayak as a demo over here in Perth?
I am stupidly tall, so can't take the risk of just buying one!

There are a few blokes with them on the west coast. Hopefully someone will pipe up with an offer of a test run. How tall are you? BigKev is a giant. I'm pretty sure he got the footwells customised to his excessive frame... Unless you are buying second hand, that could be an option.
Cheers,
Jon

Hey Ken, I'm just going to clean my fish.

I am 6'5, didn't realise they would customise for you, that would definitely be an option!

Yeah leg length more important than overall height - had a bloke your height in a Profisha 525 - he had long legs. Was on the last notch - Stealth do not do any other ski in extended footwell other than the 525 so that is what I would be looking at.

The Evo 495's used to have that option - alas they are no more .

Drop me an email with more info and I will see what we can do for you :)

I'm 6'4 with long legs and 115 kg and have a fisha 500 and find the second last peddle location peg is perfect for me. If that helps
