Slightly wider and shorter than its predecessor the Prana, the Sisu is more nimble and maneuverable as well. This exciting kayak is also extremely user friendly for aspiring paddlers to rapidly develop skills and elevate performance. The standard Sisu boats a roomy cockpit that accommodates a wide range of statures.The Sisu's unique chine configuration make it very stable on edge, allowing the paddler a tremendous amount of control and confidence in all types of conditions. The Sisu rips in current and on the face of waves due to a convex bow which works to keep the bow from getting buried.
Current Design's vacuum-bagged fiberglass laminate is a notch above most other fiberglass products on the market. Vacuum-bagging allows Current Designs to select and place reinforcing materials to provide the optimal strength and stiffness properties without adding unnecessary weight. The result is a superbly crafted composite kayak that's impeccably finished inside and out.
*Available in Fiberglass and Kevlar composite constructions with exceptional outfitting throughout. Also available in a LV (low volume) configuration with a reduced depth of 3/4".

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.
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.
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 V: The “V” shape improves tracking, has a lively feel and delivers very comfortable stability.
Paddler Size: Medium to Extra Large Stature Paddlers and their gear.
Current Design divides the Kayak into four parts as it relates to custom color options: Deck, Hull, Seam and Cockpit Coaming.
*White Available but not show
You have the option of 15 different colors for each section, so you can create a kayak that is truly one of a kind. Current Designs has a color tool available on their website on the pages for the specific kayak. Once there click the tab labeled "colors and options", that will allow you to preview the different options before making a decision.
Custom Color Example: Deck - Caribbean Hull - White Seam - Lime Coaming - Lime
