Reinvent your Native Watercraft with this rudder upgrade. The rudder works by having a spring loaded center section that extends below the hull, giving it more surface area acting on the water. This gives you the ability to have finally let go of the steering while peddling with much improved tracking to keep your hands free! The rudder dramatically increases the response in turning and removes the laziness of the kayak while turning.
Worried about what happens when you hit something going forwards?
Don’t worry… The rudder is designed to fold back into itself if you hit something going forwards! It will just retract to the same size as the original rudder and you can put the locking pin provided in for easy transport, landing and launching. We make the rudders in Melbourne Australia out of thermoformed ABS plastic, and a CNC machined aluminum shaft. The rudder can be installed quickly with a screw driver and it comes with a locking pin so it can be collapsed when traveling.
