I have the Maverick which I'd been using for the last 9 months, although it was a tug to paddle (meant for fishing not breaking speed records)it was a good kayak for what i wanted from it, while at SLH i looked at all the Lovig range and for the price they seemed really good.

I think you will enjoy your Salmon (Kahawai) it's a nice yak, gratz on you first kayak, btw they look better once you add a few scales and squid ink ;) lol

AWS is now stocking Lovig kayaks.

We’ve done a few mods now, just got home from Cheaters “welding genius” workshop, with our new stainless rail.
Will get some photos over the weekend and post them up.
