Pyranha Kayaks are truly By Enthusiasts, For Enthusiasts, and we’ve been getting seriously enthusiastic about paddling the 12R recently… Andy Butler, Ex-Paddlesport Coach/Kayak Bum turned UK Sales Manager As the lead sceptic whenever the guys at Pyranha US raised the topic of producing a Pyranha longboat (and that was quite frequently!), I have to say, I was wrong! …

That’s right, the container has reached the shores of the USA, been unloaded, and the first production 12Rs have seen water! We really turned our ‘By Enthusiasts, For Enthusiasts’ ethos on its head for this one, and made something that is first and foremost For Enthusiasts, so let’s hear what just some of those enthusiasts …

And the Winner Is…

We gave the judges at PADDLEexpo 2018 a hard time by showcasing a whole heap of newness, including the Fusion Duo and 12R, but fittingly it was the boat we’ve been humbled to see paddlers across the globe beaming from ear to ear in since we released it in early 2018, the Ripper, which claimed …

A Boat That Can Hold Both Books AND Beer

Like plenty of stories, this one begins with winning a launch date for the Grand Canyon. Where this story maybe takes a sharp turn was finding a kayak that I could cram a bunch of books inside… Several years ago, I was sitting with friends on a rental cabin porch in the Appalachians of Tennessee …
