The Bamba offers a couple of modifications on the original Bamba design to add to your angling pleasure.
Even with the modifications on this feature rich angling kayak the New Bamba is 4kg lighter! The key performance features of great trawling speed and a comprehensively kitted out kayak are still the main focus. A new peak deck design improves resurfacing during surf launches.
A key feature of the Bamba was the large centre hatch in a separately moulded compartment for storing your gear and catch inside the hull. This hatch has been doubled in size with a new centre hatch design. The rear tank-well of the Bamba has a large load bay to fit a cooler box, live bait bucket, dive cylinder or plastic crate – your storage sorted!
Weight distribution on a kayak is vital and the ability to store catch both in front and back of the Bamba is a major benefit. This stability is enhanced when casting in the standing position by non-slip mats on the deck.
The deck has ample room for storing a gaff, net, game fish baton, tackle and lures within easy reach. 3 rod holders, 4 dry hatches and a variety of attachment points are standard. The two hatches behind the seat seal to dry/wet compartments. Leave in the plugs at the bottom, and you have two perfectly dry compartments. Take a plug out, and the water from the river/ocean/lake will fill about a third of the compartment, allowing you to keep live bait in there.
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 side of the seat for storing the paddle when not needed. No more worrying about a loose paddle when you have your hands full with fish on the line. Because of the low profile and low centre of gravity, the Bamba is not much affected by choppy seas and winds, and given the paddler a comfortable and very stable ride. Although designed with the specialist fisherman in mind, the Bamba is an excellent all-rounder and can be used for various applications including touring, adventure and bird watching.
