Australis Gecko compact sea kayak


The Australis Gecko 4.4m compact sea kayak is very fast and manoeuvrable and will easily handle the open ocean. Perfect for touring.


This fast and manoeuvrable touring kayak is part of the Australis  ‘Lizard Sea Kayaks’ range. The multi-chined hull of the Gecko delivers speed and a tight turning circle as well as secondary stability when rolling and bracing

The Gecko will turn in its own length and can claim to be the fastest and most manoeuvrable sea kayak in its class.

The Gecko has a “flap” steering system that quickly and easily adjusts for people of different heights and gives a firm platform to brace against when paddling.

The controls for lifting and lowering the traditional drop-over rudder of the Gecko are located beside the paddler for safety and stability.

Foam bulkheads in the Gecko provide additional floatation and create dry-store areas in the front and rear of the kayak. Access to your gear is via easy to remove and replace rubber push-on hatches.

Producing all of the moves that experienced paddlers require, while suitable for people relatively new to sea kayaking, the Gecko is fast becoming the preferred sea kayak of smaller paddlers (up to 6’1″).

Recommended for flat to open ocean waters, bays and estuaries
