The Skylark is essentially a recreational kayak in size and fit while providing the features and performance found in a full-fledged sea kayak including hatches and bulkheads bow and stern.
It has abundant stability and a roomy fit to make the entry-level paddler comfortable, yet the efficiency to keep up with longer boats on an easy cruise. At the same time we want the more experienced paddler to have fun, so we added hard chines for carving and Greenland styling for looks.
This kayak is attractive to beginners and one that they can grow in, yet also provides a lightweight and fun alternative to the more experienced paddler. The Infinity Seat and Backrest add comfort and adjustability for a custom fit. The Skylark comes standard without thigh braces and can be ordered with as an option.
In 1996 we gave “plastic kayaks” a whole new meaning with our Carbonlite 2000 technology. Carbonlite 2000 is a high performance co-extruded plastic laminate that is proprietary to Eddyline Kayaks. It is first made into a two layer flat sheet with a “muscle” substrate and a hard abrasion and UV resistant exterior. Then, using very high temperatures and vacuum, we form each sheet into the deck or hull of a kayak.
Carbonlite 2000 brings the technology of plastic kayaks to an entirely new level of performance. Eddyline pioneered this technology back in 1995 and Carbonlite 2000 is an Eddyline exclusive. Our material looks and performs like fiberglass with clear advantages over other plastics: dimensional stability and increased stiffness, higher heat distortion temperatures, hard glossy “non fuzzing” finishes with excellent abrasion and impact resistance, easy repairability, superior UV resistance and lighter weights. Carbonlite 2000 is extremely tough, but it is also easily repaired in the event of an accident. It has endured the test of time in the hands of many paddlers, liveries and tour operators and is highly suitable for nearly all kayak applications.
Eddyline is committed to manufacturing in an environmentally responsible manner. Carbonlite 2000 is 100% recyclable (as are the bulkheads, cockpit and seat), all scrap plastic is recycled and virtually no waste is generated.
