The A K:1 Basic kayak (one-person kayak) was adapted for people with disabilities. The Basic was chosen because it has a larger cockpit for easy moves and allows the person to slide out when the kayak capsizes.
– Customized “Slimskate” seat aids balance for persons with poor trunk stability
– Lever to handle the rudder with hand
– Weights in bottom of kayak (removable) to stabilize the kayak
