The Kraken is designed for some of the most challenging paddling environments in the world and intended for the offshore and big lake kayak angler. This kayak marks the first collaborative design between legendary kayak angler, Jim Sammons and Jackson Kayak’s design team led by Tony Lee. The end result is a boat shaped and built to accommodate those hitting the open water, those looking for speed, comfort, perfect trim and big water management. It’s a paddler's fishing kayak! It’s designed for punching through surf, handling rough offshore currents, swells, beach landings, and those who desire ultimate performance when paddling long distances to get on big fish.
