SurfJet 2.0: Not All Sit-on-Tops are Created Equal

Easier to use than a SUP, better than bodyboarding, and more exciting than a lilo; you need a SurfJet 2.0! It’s a family fun kayak; a surf machine; a swimming platform; an all-round gateway to adventure.

Whether you’re spending some time on the coast and want to explore rockpools and ride the surf, or you’re unwinding inland and are looking for adventures on lakes and rivers, we guarantee the SurfJet 2.0 will put a smile on your face.

Not All Sit-on-Tops are Created Equal

Don’t sell your adventures short by buying a cheaply produced emulation of a tired, old design; get into the sport at the cutting edge and set yourself up for years of adventures to come, with the ability to make the most of every second of them.

The SurfJet 2.0 builds upon the respected foundations of the original SurfJet and has the momentum and experience of Pyranha’s 50+ years of performance kayak design and manufacture behind it. Founded in 1971 and independently owned and operated to this day, Pyranha are truly ‘By Enthusiasts, For Enthusiasts’, and the SurfJet 2.0 has been designed and built from start to finish in-house in Cheshire, England. We love kayaking, and we want you to as well!

Rather than taking the commonly-opted, easy-route of a flat-hulled sit-on-top, which is deceptively stable on flat water, but becomes difficult to balance and control on a wave, the SurfJet 2.0 has a semi-planing hull, allowing it to live up to its name in the surf, but also roll with the waves and keep you stable and happy when you just want to relax.

Our attention to detail goes deeper than the design; the SurfJet 2.0 is made from industry leading, ‘MZ3’ High Density Polyethylene, specifically developed for kayak production by Pyranha alongside our suppliers and tried and tested to the extreme in our market-leading range of whitewater kayaks. MZ3’s UV resistance additives and colour pigments are compounded into its structure, to further boost its longevity and keep it looking good for longer too.
