Nigel Foster began designing sea kayaks in the 1970's, with the Vyneck, a collaboration with Keith Robinson. This was the kayak he used to circumnavigate Iceland in 1977. Since then he has continued to produce legendary kayaks, each for specific needs.
Out of interest, the image above showing the Whisky16 was used for the cover of Nigel's book Encounters from a kayak, published by Globe Pequot Press.
For your interest we included the Vyneck here; Nigel Foster's first kayak design, which influenced his later creations. You can discover more about Nigel, his trips, books, instruction, DVD series and sense of humor on nigelkayaks.com.
