The Kidyak is a child sized skin-on-frame kayak, suitable for kids up to about 90 lbs {41kg}. It's a scaled down version of traditional arctic kayaks from Western Greenland, and is quick, easy, and very inexpensive to build. At only 15 lbs {7kg}, kids can carry it around all by themselves, and the boat is small enough that it can be transported inside many vehicles.

Six years old and a serious paddler

This is a great parent/child project, and your kids can do a lot of the work.

Decorating the skin is easy and fun, too, and the possibilities are limited only by one's imagination.

And, kids grow . . . if yours is already approaching the 90lb limit, you can build an 11' {3.35m} version instead, without any trouble.

Plans come with full sized patterns for the frames and stems, and include a very well illustrated building guide that tells you everything you need to know to build the boat.
