West Greenland kayak, kayak kits
Our kayaks carry the fluid lines of their Greenland predecessors in mahogony, epoxy & fiberglass. Built for paddlers who seek new horizons.
Good initial stability with exceptional secondary stability. The slightly fish form with some fullness in the bow and stern provide lift in heavy seas.
Mahogany, epoxy and fiberglass are ideal construction materials. Sandwiching the plys between multiple layers of glass cloth. Our kayaks are completely fiberglassed inside and out.
These low profile kayaks are very seaworthy and enhance your ability to work with rather than against the sea.
The shallow V hull bottom and sharp chine edges with flared hull sides combine to produce a superb tracking kayak that turns effortlessly when heeled.

"Your manual is the best that I have ever worked with and I have built 7 boats. This is the easiest boat I have built. Mark's methods are great and his incredible attention to detail just helps in so many ways.....Very rarely do you see a manual that tells you just how to do an A+ job as you guys have done in this manual ."

Ammassalik;
"After paddling for the last 20 years, I finally have a boat which makes up for my shortcomings in the rolling arena. I had all but given up being able to hand roll reliably, and along came the Ammassalik from Superior Kayaks. The Ammassalik took me to a whole new level of rolling. Wow! This is an extreme rolling boat which is still comfortable as a day boat. At about 34 pounds, it is a snap to throw it up on the car and just about the most fun you can have sitting down. Well done Mark!" Bob
"Love your boat. It handles very well. Have received lots of comments in the beauty and workmanship of the boat. It appears to be plenty rugged also. The flush hatches add a lot to the appearance and have stayed watertight. Thanks for a fine product." Otto S.
The Hawk flies! She's great in the water as expected. Really a fast traveler and comfortable. Stealth boat" Anne W.
"The Hawk GT is simply the finest paddling boat I have ever had the pleasure of paddling! It is love at first dip of the paddle." Bob S.
"lean this kayak on its chine and you'd think a rudder was turning the kayak. Eskimo rolls..pops right up, I feel very tight and secure in the cockpit. The Arctic Hawk is a wonderful kayak. It will become a good friend." Horst N.

"I took the Hawk SS out yesterday in about 5-7 knots for 1.5 hours and it was amazing. I took it out today in 15-17 knots for 2 hours with severe cross chop from sea walls and was truly AMAZING AND THRILLING. It was fast and stable with the wind having almost no effect on the hull and waves washing over the deck. The skeg was great when I ran downwind. THANKS AGAIN I rate the Hawk SS 12 on a scale of 1 to 10." Kevin G.
"The Hawk SS is faster than I will ever be...this boat seems to hold a nice cruising speed with minumun effort and is plenty fast when I want it to be. None of my skin boats exhibit much bow wake but I think the Hawk has even less.. It really does not feel like I am pushing any water at all...I know that changing cadence will change the speed of any kayak, but this one just seems more responsive to the little things. What fun! ...I found that using the skeg, even a little bit, was almost like cheating, kind of like putting training wheels on a nice road bike. The fit is really, really good.Can you tell I am really pleased?" Greg M.
