NRS MaverIK 1 Inflatable Kayak - The MaverIK inflatable kayak from NRS is the boat that redefined "ducky". The short waterline and high bow and stern rocker make the MaverIK quick and responsive, while its width makes it stable enough for beginners or big water. The symmetrical design is made to play, making the Maverik very stable in fast moving water and rapids on the river. Heavy-duty Pennel Orca material is abrasion, chemical and UV-resistant for unmatched durability. The inflatable thwart seat attaches with straps laced through the floor's self-bailing drain holes and can be placed anywhere you need it. Trouble-free Leafield C7 valves ensure easy inflation/deflation, and the MaverIK folds compactly for easy transport and storage. For a boat small enough to fit in your trunk, but so burly it's run the Grand Canyon, look no further than the NRS MaverIK inflatable kayak.
I want to be with my family on the river while they kayak. Kayaking is not for me but having the MaverIK I can be with them without feeling trapped in a kayak. I never wanted to learn to roll. The MaverIK is perfect for me. It paddles in a straight line and allows me to follow my son and husband down the rapids. I feel stable and confident in the MaverIK. Happy Family Times!!
As far as inflatable kayaks go, I think this is the best one out there... better than Aire, Sotar, Maravia, whatever. They're incredibly durable, and will take abuse for years and years. They track well, and are great to learn in. I think they're pretty forgiving, but even if you end up in the river, they're easy to flip over and get back into. And if you're already good, I've seen people catch some absolutely amazing surfs in holes that would flip a raft. It's a great little boat.
The forgiving nature of the MaverIK doesn't punish new paddlers for beginner mistakes. They find "Hey, I CAN ferry across that tongue of current". That leads to eddy entrances and exits... and before you know it, they're poking their bow into a wave or hole and mimicking what you're doing in your hardshell. That immediate gratification can help convince them that the investment of time and money to learn kayaking is really worth it. The MaverIK rewards more than it punishes, which inspires confidence and encourages an adventurous attitude.
