Great Starter Kayak for Small Kids


Hooptie Spec is the most basic outfitting spec possible. Just a fixed seat and hull support is supplied. Footrests, backrests, hip-pads, etc, etc... can all be added separately. Your kids want to go paddling as badly as you do, and until now there have simply been very limited options to put them on the water. We're changing that. The Mini Me is targeted to smaller kids in the 30-75 lbs range (for beginners - up to 100lbs for more experienced paddlers looking for more play), with a price point that makes it easy for you to get them on then water. We understand that most small children just want to have a positive paddling experience. They're not doing loops, or anything fancy. This does not mean that they won't get there, or that the Mini Me won't be awesome when they do, but the focus is really on making learning to paddle easy. It runs through wave trains with easy, with enough length to make it longitudinally stable, and the drop down skeg helps those really young kids to keep it going straight. Once they get their roll down, and start surfing, it's a blast with a loose hull that'll catch waves with ease, and spin on a dime. The end grab loops are made for an adults hand, so you can transport, or grab the kayak easily on the water, for both ease and safety. The MiniMe is available in Three specifications. The Yellow, and Pink are lightweight and outfitted with our kids fittings, the Orange has the same fittings but is heavier and stronger, and Blues are also the stronger construction, but with the bare bones Hooptie outfitting.
