Are you a parent who would love the kids to start kayaking? When boating is part of your life it’s natural to want to share it with those closest to you.
And trust us, going out paddling with your loved ones is a lot of fun. The Galaxy pinguino is the latest kids kayak from Galaxy Kayaks, brining you an updated hull design, with many more features than our previous models.
The Pinguino s an ideal kayak for kids
Usually we would recommend taking the kids out on the Galaxy Cruz Tandem; with its moulded seat suitable for children, or, for a solo child the Galaxy Fuego or Cruz kayaks. These are still perfectly viable options however we now have another!
We are proud to present the Galaxy Pinguino specifically designed for children under 50kgs. We felt that the kids deserved a kayak dedicated to them personally and so the Pinguino has everything they need for a fun day out on the water:
The Galaxy Pinguino measures 182cm in length by 69cm wide making this kayak fun, stable and perfect for children who are getting started in the world of kayaking.
This kayak is a simple yet fully functional boat that comes with both a seat and a children’s paddle. All you will need is a child-sized lifejacket and they can get out there!
We designed this kayak in three bright colours: Candy Blue, Super Orange and Sunshine Yellow so your children will really stand out (for visibility as well as the fun-factor).
The biggest benefit we have noticed with kids kayaking solo is that their confidence grows with navigating the water within their own space and control. Having their own watercraft is a sure fire way of getting them hooked into the sport we all love.
