A fantastic recreational, touring kayak with great stability and beautiful lines giving it perfect tracking.
The Point 65 Raider has a large cockpit for ease of access, even for larger paddlers and high deck so that your legs are comfortable while paddling and so to dispel excess chop. Suitable for day trips and medium-distance touring.
A great recreational kayak for day excursions, fishing, photographing, and just having fun, there is a perfect Raider for everyone. The cockpit, designed for easy entry/exit, is large enough to suit all types of paddlers. The ergonomically designed seat provides leg support and a comfortable paddling position. Great looks, superb handling, it’s comfortable, well priced and the Raider is light enough to load and carry on your own, so you can take it wherever you go.
Includes retractable rudder and comfortable padded seat.

Review of Point 65 Raider by Craig:
At 3.5m in length, the Raider punches well above its weight for speed. An ideal kayak for an experienced paddler wanting a smaller knockabout for mixed use, or for a beginner, who knows they are going to get into this sport, and need something they can develop their skills in. At 20kg the Raider is easy to manage out of the water too.
The Raider has a large rear compartment with rubber hatch, suitable for light overnighters. The cockpit is simple, but effective, with a performance style seat, and a cockpit rim that can take a neoprene skirt, for more advanced use. Deck bungie in front, for keeping a dry bag or drink bottle handy. The Raider has a rudder system to complete the package.

Point 65 RaiderBy: Laurence O. on 28 September 2021Great, good value kayak. Has a built-in seat, storage compartment, bungee storage on the fore and aft deck and a retractable rudder. I like it as it is streamlined and paddles well but is tough with plastic construction so can handle rivers and waterways with submerged logs and rocks that a more expensive craft would not be able to be used. Great for beginners and experienced paddlers. Weighs 20kg so can be carried by one abled person and has front and rear handles for two person carrying if necessary. Recommend to get a paddle leash and half skirt as well as the paddle which can be disassembled into two pieces for transport. Storage lid is a bit stiff when new to click onto kayak but gets easier with age. Have used mine for 3 years and still love it. Having a rudder puts this in a higher league than the typical lower priced kayaks available as can be used in windy conditions or with altering water currents.
