Hello Skipjack Kayak Series, Welcome to 2019

Written by Lauren Nelson on March 01, 2019

Kennesaw, GA (February 2019) — Introducing the 2019 updates to our classic Skipjack series. 

"The Skipjack series has been a staple entry-level kayak in our lineup for years and has remained relatively untouched since the beginning. It's time they got the attention they deserve! This year, Skipjacks get a new look, a new feature set, and a fresh new color palette." said Josh Thomas, Vibe CEO and co-founder. 

The Skipjack updates focus on comfort, portability and ruggedness, like built-in seat and back rest with the same breathable, waterproof material as our popular Hero seat, molded-in handles, front tank well and the new V-Wave hatches. Like previous years, the Skipjack series come in 2 varieties. The 9-foot Skipjack 90 and the 12-foot Skipjack 120T tandem kayak.

With more molded in features, stronger, more comfortable seating and more storage space, the 46-pound Skipjack 90 is an excellent throw-and-go kayak for quick adventures or for paddlers with limited storage space.

Along with a hull redesign, the Vibe Skipjack series got a fresh new color scheme. "You can't give the hull a complete overhaul and not freshen up the color!" said Josh Thomas. The Skipjack series and our mid-range Yellowfin series now share the same color palette including the hot new Caribbean Blue.

The 2019 Vibe Skipjack 90 kayak and Vibe Skipjack 120T kayak will be rolling out at Vibe dealers late March 2019.

Vibe Skipjack Kayak Series Updates


No more leaving your seat at home with the built in ergonomic back rest and cushion. This seat provides comfort for all day adventures, and has the same ultra-comfortable, waterproof breathable mesh fabric as the Vibe Hero Seat.


4 built-in flush mount rod holders take the Skipjack from kayak to fishing machine. 


The round hatches on all of our 2019 kayaks received sleek new upgrades, too. The new V-Wave Deck Plates feature an easy, quarter-turn opening system without the hassle of breakable latches or threaded, screw shut hatches that seize shut. With an improved gasket system and waterproof bag insert, gear stays dry when condensation and moisture accumulate in the hull.

Our molded-in handles provide a comfortable, sturdy grip to make your kayak carrying a breeze.
