Vagabond, Tsomo

Type: Flatwater


Designed for stability and comfort, the Tsomo is our shortest and widest adult’s sit-on-top.

Its compact length makes it convenient to transport on the roof racks of a sedan or on the back of a bakkie (aka ‘pickup truck’). It is also easy to store if storage space is a concern. Naturally, the smaller size and lighter weight compared to the longer models in our line-up make it easy to carry around and load on top of roof racks.

The Tsomo is alert, playful and responsive. It turns on a dime, cruises on flatwater and is a pleasure to paddle. It is not designed to win any races, but it has plenty of speed and glide for such a short sit-on-top. Its width aids stability – a welcome feature when the wind whips up the water.

Its large Tankwell allows you to transport a decent volume of gear, a child or a large dog. Use the front 8″ Screw Hatch for items that need to be stowed away even more securely.

The Paddle Rest on the one side and Bottle Holder on the other side of the seat makes it easy to stay hydrated and keep your hands free when you’re not paddling.

Like the other kayaks in our range of sit-on-tops, the Tsomo has a Sculpted Seat and a footwell that sits lower than the seat for all-day comfort. You might not want to paddle a long distance with this short sit-on-top, but you will be able to spend hours on it.

The Tsomo comes as a Tsomo Angler version too with additional features.
