The Norse Ask kayak represents the new generation of sea kayak design. Tested on the Scandinavian coasts where the mountains meet the Atlantic ocean; these kayaks will excel anywhere in the world.

The Ask is all about performance, handling and seaworthiness. The hull is optimized for speed while being highly maneuverable due to its double hard chine. The crisp handling characteristics will help beginners unlock more advanced technique while providing performance for the experienced paddler who wants a responsive and agile sea kayak.

The Ask is designed to be an extension of the body, the interface between the human and the ever changing sea. For this reason, smaller paddlers will want to consider the Norse Embla featuring the same design characteristics in a smaller package.
