Coho

Voted Best Wood Kayak by Sea Kayaker Magazine’s 2011 Reader’s Choice Award! Pygmy named the Coho in honor of the famous Coho salmon of the Northwest. Like her namesake, she flows fast, light, and lean through the water.

Coho Candidates: The Coho’s high maneuverability appeals to intermediate and advanced paddlers. Do a leaned turn and feel her easy response to your stroke. Her elegant lines and good stability appeal to beginners. Taller paddlers or those who wear a shoe size larger than a men’s twelve might prefer the fit of the Coho Hi.
