We are a sea tribe who paddle long boats in rough water conditions in the northwest of Spain.
Our playground is the chaotic frontier among the mighty Atlantic ocean and the ancient Galician coast, where it was said, in the ancient times, that the world ended and the maps showed terrifying creatures……
Rockgardens, ocean surfing, currents, cliffs, big swells, uninhabited islands, gale force storms………… Once you have been paddling between dragons, is not possible to paddle like a human again .
It is a one way trip.

So, it was time to hang out the drysuits, pfds and helmets for a while and to dress up for the ceremony.
Some minor details are provisionals, only presents in this prototype.
For example, the final kayak will be with the footrests adjustables from the cockpit, bungee cords in different colours than the decklines or rounded bulkheads.
There is neither holes nor bolts in the hull for the footrests.
An advice: It´s not a good idea to carry your car or home keys or your phone in the kayak.
Why? Well, you run the risk of losing them if your kayak gets damage, sinked or it´s imposible to recover.
It´s better idea you carry them in the pocket of your pfd inside a small drybag.
The backrest with the Goltziana´s logo is beautifull , very long-lasting but not necessary because
the very comfortable seat and the ergonomics thigh braces give you all the control over the boat.
Óscar likes so much the "Force" so it´s very difficult for the rest of the crew to move closer of the kayak.....
Dont touch it f***** dragons....... it´s only mine... !!!!
He used his poor mental power to repulse to Roberto, but
Óscar didn´t know that he was playing with fire and finally he was beating ferocity (near to dead) by the vindictive tribe...
It has very good cargo capacity and good cruising speed but
because all of these high quality boats that the small portuguese company produces, are capables in the hardest conditions of use and abuse how they are showed in the last year with the Dragons

Thanks Goltziana not only for support to THOD with your kayaks, but also for stay here these last difficult years fighting and betting for the FUTURE.
