About the Clubline

Perfect for Beginners and Clubs

Perfect for beginners and clubs alike, the Clubline models from NK are your go-to surf skis for regular training, wave-riding fun, or scenic touring. Equipped with two optional carbon loading hatches, these kayaks are as versatile as they come. Crafted with fiberglass, epoxy resin, and a sleek gray gelcoat, they’re tough, durable, and ready to take a beating—ideal for those who want great value without compromising on quality.

Despite their rugged build, these boats maintain a respectable weight—approximately 14.5 kg (32 lbs) for the Club 540 and Club 560, and a lean 13 kg (28.6 lbs) for the Club 480—all at a price that won’t make your wallet cry.

Each kayak comes loaded with all the nifty NK features you love: a quick-adjust carbon footrest, carbon carry handles on the sides and at the front/rear, and the efficient deBrito self-bailer (aka drain flap). And for that extra touch of convenience, the Clubline includes a built-in step in the cockpit to make getting in and out a breeze.

  • carbon fiber footrest with self adjusting lines made for easy length adjustment
  • deBrito (vs 3) foot controlled self bailer, the most efficient on the market
