This kayak was built in Sakhalin Island, Eastern Russia, by Alexander for a customer, Grigoriy, who weighs 105Kg, is 185 cm tall, and has feet 30.5 cm long. Grigoriy wanted a Shrike-R, the rolling variant, but because of his size the topsides were raised 2 cms, and raised a further 2cm in the foredeck area, with the transition in heights at the cockpit. Grigoriy wanted a clearance under the masik of 29 cm, and this was a heavy strain on the foredeck plywood as it bent around the masik.
Grigoriy is delighted with his specialised rolling Shrike.
