The Hellbender is Verus Kayaks first full slice design, and a new addition to our 2020 lineup. This boat was born from a craving for cartwheels and a dream of a slicey boating revolution. Combining a modern hull and outfitting, with classical inspiration from the days of rodeo, this boat is your go-to fun machine.

Exploring Tibet In Our Kayaks

Mid-July we left towards Southern Asia and joined an international group of kayakers to go and explore the whitewater in Tibet. Being known as the roof of the world and containing the tallest mountains in the world left us to wonder what rivers must lie deep in the heart of the Himalayas.
