Rip 12™ Polymer

The Rip 12 expands Necky’s performance heritage to the recreational class. With many of the same features as its smaller sibling, the Rip 12 has nearly two more feet of waterline allowing you to move faster across the water and a sharp keel giving it even more glide. While most recreational kayaks don’t include bulkheads and other details that are overlooked to get to an affordable price, the Rip 12 doesn’t skimp. Designed to grow with you, the Rip 12 is a great choice if you’re just getting started.

  • Built in drop down skeg

    Retractable Skeg

    Our retractable skeg allows a paddler to adjust the trim of the kayak. This can be advantageous in high wind conditions, when dropping the skeg even a few inches. A skeg can help reduce fatigue and make a significant difference in your boat's tracking ability.

    Necky skegs incorporate "Necky Wire," a highly durable, kink-resistant wire common to the medical industry. It is unaffected by salt water and does not stiffen or kink over time. In testing, we've never experienced a failure, even when the skeg was repeatedly slammed against logs or hard rocks jammed inside the skeg box.
