Whether you’re a first time kayaker or a seasoned hand on the sea, the Jura is sure to bring a smile to your face.

The Jura is a stable, forgiving sea kayak that is at home on everything from coastal tours to short expeditions. Designed to introduce beginning paddlers to kayak touring and then grow with them as their skills develop, the Jura’s neutral hull tracks straight, yet is nimble on edge.

This high-performance kayak comes standard with skeg as standard but is available with Venture's innovative under-stern Skudder system that functions as both a skeg and a rudder, depending on conditions.


Performance hull design:

  • Semi flat mid hull with a slight V & moderate rocker: -Stable, safe and reliable. Gives stability, manoeuvrability, great tracking and control in all conditions.

  • Long waterline for effortless cruising.

  • Full volume bow to give lift in waves, to give you a drier ride.

  • Slim stern to lock stern in to a wave and help the bow lift when surfing.

  • Moderate high volume to carry all your gear with ease.

  • Low cockpit back for easier rolling.

Performance outfitting:

  • P&H performance seat, with Connect seat liner & Floating adjustable backrest to give a greater level of support and control

  • Fully adjustable footrest system, that is quick and easy to adjust to fit a range of paddler sizes.

  • Paddle park -keeps the paddle close at hand while fishing, bird watching or taking photos

  • Deck elastics to store map and spare paddles for easy access.

  • Full Perimiter lines for safety

  • Ergonomic cockpit position with high knee position -So you can paddle all day in comfort.

  • 3 large hatches including the much loved day hatch behind the cockpit, so you can store all your gear for longer trips.

  • Security bar & Paddle recess behind the cockpit for easier entry and exit.

Whitewater the Canoe Centre
"We were impressed with how well the Jura coped gliding through the water nicely for a plastic boat, with the more forgiving nature of the Venture range becoming immediately apparent with the boat feeling really solid and stable and while still being plenty quick enough to keep up with the rest of the group."
