Malibu Kayak History
Malibu kayaks were established in 1999. It started with an introduction of the Pro Explorer. Their aim was to make kayaks for hardcore enthusiasts. They also focused on recreational paddlers, anglers and fitness experts for kayaking and exercise. For more than ten years, the Malibu kayaks company has created kayaks based on what is important for the angler.
These important features include stability, versatility and dry seating. These elements are not often associated with sit on top kayaks.
Their products ranged from the Pro explorer to the Extreme, and then the Pro 2 Tandem. Then they also introduced the X-Factor, the hardcore fish and dive kayak and then the mini-X.
