Construction and Pricing

Constructions Comparison

We take great pride in crafting high-quality surf kayaks using only the best available materials. Each kayak is designed and hand-built in the UK with a focus on consistency and quality. Here are some of the features you can expect from our kayaks:

  • High-density foam core in the hull for improved stiffness and strength

  • All Epoxy hull and deck for increased strength and weight reduction

  • Dual Seamed for a stronger connection between the hull and deck

  • Reinforced in common 'damage' areas for maximum durability

We offer four different construction options:

  • Origin construction: This is our entry-level build, specifically designed for those new to the sport of surf kayaking or those who are less concerned with the weight of their kayak. Built from an all-glass and diolin construction, it offers a perfect balance of durability and performance, making it an excellent choice for beginners looking to get started in surf kayaking. Priced at £1800

  • Competition Construction: This high-quality construction is prepared for high performance, featuring stiffness and impact resistance. Priced at £2200.

  • Elite Construction: Ideal for high-end competition, radical riding, and pushing the boundaries of what's possible in a surf kayak, this construction has excellent performance thanks to its extreme stiffness and strength. It utilizes high-tech moulding processes to achieve these features. Priced at £2400.

  • Hobson's Choice: This option allows us to build the lightest, strongest, and most robust kayak possible for you. With years of experience building championship-winning kayaks, we'll take your design ideas and build something truly special using our expertise and the latest materials and processes available. Priced at £2600.

Choose Hobson Kayaks for the ultimate surf kayak that's tailored to your needs and built to last.

What is Armour Protection?

Armour Protection is a supplementary layer that is added to the kayak hull to enhance its long-term durability, repairability, and overall strength. It is highly recommended for those who frequent pebble beaches, reef breaks, or experience rough entry and exit to the sea. The addition of Armour Protection increases the weight of your kayak by 700 grams, but it is a small price to pay for the added protection and peace of mind. Purchase Armour Protection for £150 and safeguard your kayak investment for years to come.
