Welcome to the world of rockhopping, an activity slotting neatly into the gap between playboating and sea kayaking.

Rockhopper 340

Tek Rockhopper 340 kayak

Rockhopping is 'close to shore' saltwater paddling: short trips and playing the sea, calm or wild. Rocky coastlines, blue skies, rock gardens, swells, surf, tides and tide races - all combining to ensure the perfect rockhopping experience.

The Rockhopper’s unique hull shape provides high stability and extreme manoeuvrability, an ideal combination for close shore exploration in wind and wave. Although the Rockhopper is aimed at those with the skills required to kayak in extreme conditions, the high stability means the kayak can also be used by beginners (who may find conventional sea kayaks unstable and difficult to manoeuvre).
