The New Stellar Racer (SR) is stable and fast for those paddlers looking to transition from a touring kayak or those who want more stability from a surf ski in rough conditions. A greatly narrower catch and reduced volume footwell help to modernize this popular surf ski. We moved the paddler forward to catch waves easier as well as increasing the bow deck volume a little to release from the waves easier. We kept the same hull shape below the water that paddlers raved about! The beauty of the SR is that it allows you to keep your paddling rhythm without bracing, which keeps the hull speed at a higher constant rate than if you were in a racing ski and had to brace. A water bottle holder in the cockpit and handles in the bow in stern round out this amazing boat.
