The Fluid Buddy kayak is a high volume and super stable kayak. The Buddy was designed for adults up to 120kgs and can be easily used by kids. At 19kgs it is easy to transport and a breeze to handle out and on the water. It turns on a dime and the shorter hull length and design makes for a great kayak in the surf zone. It also features a small rear facing seat in the front for a young kid.
The Buddy was designed to perform on ocean waves and handles great in mild white water rapids. It is an all rounder kayak and is the choice if you want a kayak for a bit of everything. With thigh straps fitted you can even do an Eskimo roll with it. The seamless construction makes it exceptionally safe and durable, just like the other sit-on-tops in the Fluid stable. The Buddy also has a dry hatch, foam plugs for the drain holes, and a series of loops to attach thigh straps, a backrest and anything else you might want to take along on the water.
The Buddy has a more defined tri-hull than the Chumani and Synergy, which share the same hull concept. The tri-hull is achieved by a soft keel complemented by curved rails on either side. This combination makes the boat track quite well on flat water for such a short sit-on-top, but at the same time, it enables the boat to play and carve on ocean waves. The Buddy “Angler” is a great little boat for inland and back-line fishing.
