Rebel Kayaks - new brand of high-end sea kayaks by Johan Wirsen & Aquarius

"After more then ten years of designing kayaks for a number of companies (and got ripped off a couple off times) it is now time to back off a little and look for the passion and joy once more.
The idea for Rebel Kayaks is to connect design with skilled employees. Workers that have the knowledge and feeling for the materials that they work with. And also have the knowledge and feeling for paddling. It means that I as a designer am more closely connected to the process. The vast experience that the builders have will translate into producing high end sea kayaks for demanding paddlers – built on experience!

First two models introduced under the Rebel brand will not be “new models”. Instead we have chosen two models that are well known, recognised, and highly regarded by paddlers all around. We will upgrade them and also put more effort into the lamination in order to get stiffer and lighter boats. The kayaks will not be produced in big numbers any more. Instead we will focus on putting that little extra effort into each and every kayak.
The difference that You will feel while paddling in REBEL kayak."
Johan Wirsén



First model Greenland "T" (greenland style sea kayak) of Rebel Kayaks we will take to  KanuMesse / Paddle Expo 2013 in Nunrberg
Find and visit us on Aquarius Kayak's stand which is D7 in hall number 7.

Greenland T is not so "new" on the market. In fact kayak is very well known but under other brands.
We have changed i.a:

  • backrest - now is foldable and also connected to seat.
  • weight - we have used best combination of materials. New Greenland T is lighter and stiffer - it means our kayak is BETTER than it was before ;)
