How did we get here.
2010 London UK
“Catamarans are faster and more efficient through water than monohulls!”
This was the thought passing through my head whilst trying to catch up with my experienced and fitter kayaker friends. We were paddling hard - squeezing through the undergrowth of one of the many Thames’ tributaries in an old part of east London. The only wilderness adventure you could get to within driving distance.
Fast forward 10 years, a product design degree, and some radical tree tent designs, and here I am back to the idea of a fast and stable catamaran kayak.Kirk Kirchev - Product Designer
