Ask and Embla represent a new generation of Scandinavian seakayak design developed and tested along the spectacular Norwegian coast, where the mountains meet the Atlantic sea and in the surf swells at “Cold Hawaii” on the Danish west coast. The keywords for the new Norse series of performance seakayaks are efficient handling characteristics and seaworthiness, contained in a low profiled and compact design with a speed optimized hull. The low profile deck minimizes wind impact and offers a four hatch layout with compass recess, low back deck and ergonomic cockpit for optimal contact and paddle efficiency. The hull is designed for high maneuverability and surf with double hard chine for efficient and distinct handling characteristics. The well-defined responsiveness will serve the beginners learning curve and provide performance for the experienced paddler who wants a responsive and agile seakayak for the next adventure in challenging conditions.


Ask and Embla is designed by Danish kayak designer Jesper Kromann-Andersen known in Scandinavia for the design of the original arrow kayaks Play, Nuka and Empower. Jesper has also made several successful designs for US based Current Designs.

Jesper’s kayak design emphasize the kayak as an extension of the body and differs from traditional boat design in that the kayak is not designed for hull efficiency alone, but as the interface between the human body and the ever changing sea.
