The perfect sit-on-top for price-conscious paddlers who love the active lifestyle.

The Tribe 9.5 is an affordable, easy-going, great looking sit-on-top that performs terrifically in light surf, but is also speedy and maneuverable on flat water and lazy rivers. With side handles built-in, plus additional bow and stern handles, carrying and car topping is a breeze.

The added length on the Tribe 11.5 gives a boost of speed, extra storage and even adventure potential over the smaller size. Beginners and veterans alike will find the Tribe a joy to paddle in flat water, like lakes and lazy rivers, and light surf.

The versatile Tribe 13.5 sit-on-top design features a three-seat configuration for up to two adults and a small child or pet. Other features include self-bailing scupper tubes and bow and stern storage areas with bungees to safely secure backpacks, picnic baskets, and coolers. You also have the option to paddle solo from the center seat – it's up to you!
