Carolina 14.0: The Carolinas are steeped in the tradition that made them the most popular day touring kayaks in the world. The v-shaped hull with soft chines improves stability and performance, making them easier to paddle for novice paddlers. The large cockpit allows for easy entry and exit. Inside, the padded backrest can be adjusted up, down, fore, and aft to find the perfect seating angle for you. Adjustable foot pegs allow you to further perfect the fit. Padding on the cockpit rim gives your knees a comfortable place to rest. Bow and stern deck rigging makes it easy to secure smaller items above-deck, and watertight hatches with bulkheads keep larger gear protected. Note: Each multicolor boat is unique, and color patterns vary boat to boat.

Carbon Swell Plus: Make waves with the Swell! This performance paddle is designed for a more relaxed low-angle stroke and crafted with the most discerning kayak devotee in mind. With a T-700 carbon fiber shaft the Swell provides amazing durability for the weight. Balanced and flutter-free composite blades further reduce weight so you can paddle longer with less fatigue. With the Telescoping Adjustable Ferrule, you can customize your paddling experience instantly. Set the feather angle of your blades to minimize wind resistance without causing wrist fatigue. Telescope the Swell to the ideal length for your paddling style and conditions. Perfect for anything from day trips to full-blown expeditions, the Swell offers ultimate performance for any serious paddler.

Sneak Nylon Skirt (2.5 Deck): The Sneak is a high-quality sprayskirt is constructed of medium-weight nylon pack cloth. A waterproof coating with double-stitched and sealed seams ensures a watertight fit. A water-resistant zipper on the front of the tunnel makes taking the skirt on and off provides easy, and provides access to the inside of your boat while paddling. The adjustable neoprene waistband and removable suspenders allow the Sneak to easily accommodate a wide range of paddlers. The shock-cord cockpit fits easily onto the boat, and rim grip/safety slip technology holds it firmly in place. A tensioned deck stay keeps the Sneak from sagging, and two zippered mesh pockets give you a place to secure small gear items.

aSEA PFD: The aSEA is designed specifically for boaters looking for a soft form-fitting vest with added ventilation and the performance of a high cut back. The lower half of the vest’s back is cool mesh, providing air circulation and fitting comfortably above the higher seat backs found in many of today’s recreational and touring boats. The upper half provides flotation and an accessory lash tab for a strobe. Extra-wide armholes and open sides offer great comfort and a full range of motion. Large dual bellows pocket offer a D-ring for keys, and expand to fit a beverage can! Reflective tape front and back adds safety in low-visibility conditions.

    Shopping Info

    This is a great kayak plain and simple. I am a big guy at 230 pounds yet there is plenty of room inside, and it is very easy to get in and out of. There is plenty of storage and it has a nice little area behind the seat to stow stuff. The seat is very comfortable and also very adjustable. One caveat though, I took mine out yesterday for the first time in strong 20+ mph winds. It tracked well into the wind and even sideways but when the wind was behind me I had to constantly fight to keep it from turning broadside. I just ordered the rudder for mine. If you are in a windy area like I am, I highly suggest getting the rudder too. All in all I am very happy with my new boat and very pleased with Outdoorplay. They did an excellent job of packing it for shipping and it arrived very quickly.

    I was looking for a boat that would be capable enough for coastal sea kayaking yet small enough for use on rivers and with enough dry storage for overnight camping. The Carolina 14 fit the bill perfectly. The boat was reworked for 2007, and now has front and rear hatches and more then adequate tie downs. The seat was also completely changed. The Carolina 14 now sports the “Zone multi adjust outfitting system.” This means, that you get a padded seat with an adjustable backrest. The backrest is adjustable from a ratchet system on the side. The boat handles very well. It is stable yet quick. I have taken this boat from Esker Point in Connecticut to Fisher’s Island NY and crossed the nearly two miles of open sound with ease. It even handled the boat wakes well. I have also used it to kayak camp overnight in the Boston Harbor, NP. The storage compartments are large enough for a overnight if you travel light. I find the cockpit very comfortable. I chose this boat partly because of the open cockpit. The opening is not as large as on a recreational boat but big enough to give you room to move around. Overall I am very pleased with this boat and would recommend it to people of all abilities.

    This yak is so great! It fits like a glove, moves swiftly in the water, is very comfortable, and there are just too many things to say about it. I am new to kayaking and feel so stable in this boat that I push myself, and the boat, past my comfort zone. I love it and would recommend it to ANYONE! I have been researching and demoing boats for about 1-1.5 years. It was my first boat, and a big investment, and I wanted to make sure I got the boat that suited me the most. As soon as I slipped into this boat it was like magic. I am about 5'8 250lbs. I was worried about my weight being a problem, but it was wonderful. Not even an issue! I have been paddling it so much this season I can’t keep my paddle out of the water. It pays to do your homework!
