Tahe Marine Reval Mini Kayak Review
The Reval Mini kayak from Tahe Marine is the smallest model in the series that also includes the Reval Mini LC, the mid-sized Reval Midi, and the larger Reval HV. The Mini is also unique in comparison to its siblings in that it has a more aggressive soft chine hull and is fully rockered bow and stern. Due to the hull shape and up-swept ends, the Reval Mini kayak is much more responsive making it an excellent boat to paddle in challenging, open water conditions.
Considering the boat's playfulness, it can also be used for surf on the ocean or in larger lakes with bigger waves. The lower volume and narrower design of the Reval Mini kayak makes it the perfect boat for small paddlers in the 100 lbs – 160 lbs range. The snug fitting cockpit and well-placed thigh braces provide a one-with-boat fit, which offers complete control over the kayak for long-term skills development. The low back of the Reval Mini kayak also makes lay-back rolls easier as well as wet entries a cinch.
Given aggressive design of the Reval Mini kayak, it is less stable than the other boats in the Reval series. As such, the Mini caters to more intermediate paddlers or aspiring beginners who are looking to challenge themselves and develop skills.
The Reval Mini Kayak comes complete with a round bow hatch, oval stern hatch, as well as the convenient day hatch just aft of the cockpit. Given the lower volume of the boat, gear storage is slightly limited meaning smart packing is required when doing weekend excursions and longer trips. Complete deck rigging is provided for additional gear storage on deck, while the reflective perimeter lines offer safety when paddling in low light conditions.
