Sea Kayak – Craig Pinder

The Explorer CS (Cedar Strip) sea kayak, built at the Academy by student Craig Pinder in 2006 under licence from Nigel Dennis of Sea Kayaks UK.

The first picture shows Craig taking the lines off the original SKUK Explorer, with legendary boat builder Jack Chippendale in the background, keeping an eye on things.

Ocean Paddler magazine did a review of the kayak, which can be found here.
