The Legend handles beautifully in wild conditions and surfs with precision in following seas. The hull provides a comfortable degree of initial stability, while the chines offer substantial secondary stability that can be used to the paddler's advantage to confidently tilt or edge the Legend to enhance its turning performance.
The clipper bow and secondary levels of buoyancy in the hull make the Legend a dry boat to paddle, while the clean deck layout, with everything from hatches to safety line anchor points and compass being recessed, minimizes spray. The cockpit is roomy inside for leg and foot comfort, with a comfortable seat. The Legend has expedition carrying capacity, and is easy to load through the standard configuration of two large oval hatches, with a separate round offset hatch to one side behind the paddler accessing a sealed "day-hatch".
Nigel Foster is an experienced kayak designer, ocean paddler and kayak instructor. He designs elegant, responsive and purposeful sea kayaks - The Silhouette, Legend and Shadow.
The Legend Shadow is a performance sea kayak with increased stability and solid secondary stability for crisp edged turns. The larger "keyhole" cockpit allows easy access making the Shadow and the paddler seeking a reassuring craft.
Carrying capacity for expeditions is excellent, with loading through the two large oval hatches and the "day-hatch" standard on all of Foster's designs. This kayak has become a favorite amongst instructors for its ease of making clear on-water demonstrations of paddling skills.
