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 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...
