A popular international figure in sea kayaking, Nigel Foster is known for his writing, instruction, travels and kayak designs. Nigel has completed many kayak expeditions and was the first to circumnavigate Iceland by kayak with companion Geoff Hunter in 1977. Nigel designed the Rumour for low-effort cruising and a slim fit. It has a buoyant bow and low profile stern, with the shallow-arch hull between hard chines running into a shallow "V" toward the stern. Recessed deck fittings include a compass recess forward of the front hatch, with bow and stern hatches and a day-hatch with all-fiberglass bulkheads throughout. The Rumour's narrow beam is aimed at smaller paddlers up to 160 pounds. The snug fit and slim profile also make it an excellent rolling kayak. 

Swede Form: Widest behind the cockpit, Swede form has a cleaner, longer, and more slender entry, giving efficient touring speeds and maneuverability. In shorter lengths these kayaks are very responsive. Longer kayaks with this feature have amazing acceleration and track well. Because of the narrow bow they may punch through a steep wave, rather than ride over it.

Hard Chine: A hard chine kayak has a well defined edge where the hull bottom meets the sides. This increases the initial stability greatly. Hard chines give defined edging angles and assist in holding an edge.

Shallow Arch: These have good initial stability and are highly maneuverable.

Touring Cockpit: Touring cockpits are somewhat small to help resist imploding of the spray skirt if hit by a large wave in rough water. They include built-in thigh braces on the cockpit rim to maximize control when edging and rolling. They range from 29” to 35” long, depending on the model.
