Summary – Valley's shortest sea-kayak model (14’10”/452cm) and offered in two version; The SP (sports play) which combines increased rocker and more bow volume to make this our best rock-hopping/surf/rough water kayak. And the ST (sports touring), With the design tuned the opposite way, to improve speed on less challenging water (as fast as many 16’ kayaks), it also uses the advantage of its reduced weight to make it easier to manage both on and off the water.
Design – Both the SP & ST, effectively share the same mid-section and thus benefit form a consistent cockpit fit and the initial stability, created by the shallow ‘V’ hull. From this point, it’s easier to imagine how a “Jack-of-All-Trades”, mid-way design would have been and talk about how each improves on that compromise. clearly notice that the bow of the SP is wider and has significantly more volume, to prevent pearling whilst surfing, yet the ST’s front is narrower, with a finer bow entry, to increase speed in more placid conditions. Rocker also benefits from these subtle difference, the SP has more, to increase maneuverability and the ST, less to promote tracking and maximize waterline length. Even the flair from the hull’s chine area to the seam-line differs, The SP having slightly more, increasing secondary stability and overall width, The ST’s sides are more vertical, giving a slightly narrower water-line, again helping to increase hull speed.
Couple this unique design approach with cutting-edge infused composite constructions and you suddenly have the most exciting development to hit sea-kayaking in recent years.

February Staff Newsletter

February was a busy month in the shop. As well as a number of reps coming to see us, and a number of visits to make, we also attended the Run, Walk, Crawl Brecon to Cardiff Ultra, and hosted a climbing shoe demo with Tenaya at local bouldering wall Spot Climbing. We still managed to get out, and members of Team Up and Under could be found in many parts of the UK; including in the Brecon Beacons, the Lakes, South Downs, Scotland, as well as further afield in Chamonix and George L still in Thailand.

January Staff Newsletter

January saw us starting to get into the swing of things again. A little snow saw many of the team in the Beacons, as well as further afield with trips to the Peak District, Cheddar Gorge and Pembrokeshire all squeezed in. New Years day allowed few of us to get out (even if the weather wasn't great in South Wales) but a number were in still Snowdonia and elsewhere where it was a little nicer.
