Consistency. Reliability. Durability. These are just some of the adjectives used to describe the most influential creeking kayak on the market.

Predictable and forgiving, the Nomad's displacement hull still boofs, resurfaces, and holds a line better than any other creeker. The peaked bow sheds water, and the consistent edges mean that the boat does exactly what you want, when you want, no questions asked. 

With more 100-foot waterfall descents than any other design, the Nomad is at home on steep creeks, as well as high-volume rivers. Six grab loops offer anchor points in the event of an emergency, and the rotomolded step out pillar give the Nomad's hull unparalleled structural rigidity. Contour-Ergo Outfitting allow for a custom fit for any paddler. The 8.5 is best for mid-sized to larger paddlers, or paddlers who need extra storage for exploratory missions.

The Nomad...the most legendary creek boat ever made, period.
