Packrafts for easier water, lakes, estuaries and longer hikes.
NEW FOR 2020
The bow design has been improved in 2020 to make the boat drier in waves without compromising speed.
The Mōkihi Series of packrafts are light weight, low profile, stable and are suitable for lakes, estuaries, and easy rivers. Mōkihi were simple flax stalk rafts that were excellent for crossing lakes and rivers. They have a long waterline for lower water resistance and hence greater speed over distances. Low profile is important in any wind conditions. High bows catch the wind, making it difficult to maintain direction and it can get very tiring. The tubes are parallel which assists tracking.
The standard model is suitable for flat water use where the open water crossings are relatively short and not exposed to open water waves, strong wind, or current and tides.
For a more uncomplicated packraft if you are just starting out, try the Inanga Series.
For water conditions such as rapids, breaking surf, and swift water, the Apex Series is more suited.
If you want your packraft for racing then check out the Adventure Racing Series.
