The Bamba: Fluid Kayak's New Fishing Kayak

The Bamba: Fluid Kayak's New Fishing Kayak


With the Bamba, Fluid has
thought of everything the kayak
fisherman could need. Except for
the story about the one that got

"The two hatches behind the seat seal two dry/wet compartments."

After months of working around the clock, fine tweaking and testing the Bamba, Fluid Kayaks have announced that they are now satisfied with the end result and have placed their dedicated fishing kayak into full production.

Fluid Kayaks describes the Bamba as not just the modification of an existing design. Instead, it is a completely new design to make sure all fishermen's wishes are taken care of. The Bamba offers excellent stability, great trawling speed and all the gadgets you need for a superb fishing experience.

A key feature of the Bamba is the large centre hatch in a separately moulded compartment for storing your gear and catch inside the hull. A 180cm fully rigged fishing rod fits into the compartment.

The sturdy, easily adjustable footrests are very comfortable to use.

The Bamba tracks well without a rudder, and will initially only be offered without the rudder. A rudder option will be available in the near future.

A nifty little slot with bungee cord was added on the left si...
