Ocean Kayak launches it's newest model kayak this month, the Tetra 10 and 12. The Tetra looks to be a kayak that's at home cruising the lakes or fishing the beach. Ocean Kayak said they were going for a clean comfortable and stable ride. This looks like it could be a great kayak fishing platform! Check out the following photos, press release and video for more information about Ocean Kayak newest edition.

Old Town, Maine (June 27, 2011) Ocean Kayak, a leader in the paddlesports industry since 1971, today introduced the new Tetra kayak series. Recreational kayaks boasting clean simple design, the Ocean Kayak Tetra series was engineered for outstanding comfort, superior stability and reliable all around performance.


Built for casual cruising on inland lakes, slow moving rivers and coastal flats, the Tetra series offers an ideal balance of form and function. As with all Ocean Kayaks, Tetra kayaks are self-bailing for a dry comfortable ride. The Tetras also feature a new innovation from Ocean Kayak, the Hybrid Comfort Seat Back. This unique seating system is incorporated into the boat with a fixed seat pad and adjustable back support for an intuitive custom fit and easy transport. Want to upgrade your seat? No problem, the Hybrid Comfort Seat Back can easily be removed.

“Tetra kayaks are designed as cross over boats for paddlers who might want to dabble in several different activities,” said Sara Knies, Marketing Director for Ocean Kayak. “Extremely stable, comfortable and maneuverable, Tetra series kayaks are prefect for those who want a great paddling experience but also may want to fish from a kayak on any given day.”

Tetra kayaks will be available in two standard models, the Tetra 10 and Tetra 12, as well as two Tetra Angler editions. Key features include the Quick Seal bow hatch for convenient storage, adjustable foot pegs, large tank well with bungee, low profile grab handles and drain plugs. Angler models will feature flush mounted rod holders and the Mod Pod II, a narrower version of Ocean Kayak’s popular Modular Fishing Pod found on the center console.
