British White Water kayak Design (The rambling tale)

Pyranha are delighted to have been asked to host the keynote presentation at the River Source White Water Symposium this month. Graham Mackereth, owner and head designer at Pyranha has been pioneering British kayak design since the mid-70s, has an unrivalled collection of historical canoes and kayaks and an infectious interest in boat design and history.

Graham is joined by Industrial designer at Pyranha Richard Taylor to look back at the very beginnings of British white water boat design, through the birth of early slalom and fiberglass, reminiscing over some of the iconic designs of our time, the current technology and safety features that go into modern day kayaks, and a look towards the future of British Kayak manufacture, followed by an open question and answer session.

Boat geeks of the UK, this is one not to be missed!

The after dinner presentation is free to attend but booking for the other fantastic range of coaching and clinics is available on line here On-line Booking
