Size and Weight

Eddyline Sandpiper 130 is 13 ft (396.2 cm) long with a 28-inch (71 cm) beam. At 48 lbs (21.8 kg), it’s not the lightest of Eddyline’s boats (for comparison, the original Eddyline Sandpiper weighs in at 38 lbs) but still totally manageable.

Eddyline Sandpiper 130 also offers more volume and capacity than the original Sandpiper. The Sandpiper 130 can carry up to 390 lbs (176.9 kg), while the original Sandpiper is rated for 350 lb (158.8 kg). If you’re over 200 lbs or you like to take a lot of gear with you, the Sandpiper 130 might be a better choice.

Features

Eddyline Sandpiper 130 has all the features of the original Eddyline Sandpiper. It features retractable carrying handles (which are quiet in the wind or waves), two bulkheads for maximum safety and dry storage, and partial deck lines (the rear one can be used for self-rescue with a paddle float). Just like in Sandpiper, you get adjustable footrests with about 10″ of adjustability and soft knee pads.

What’s different about Sandpiper 130 is the seat. The kayak features a super comfortable Cloud 10 frame seat. With its adjustable high backrest, this seat will help you stay on the water for hours without getting tired. You can also remove the seat from the kayak and use it as a beach chair.

Performance

Wide and stable, Eddyline Sandpiper 130 is not a racing boat. However, it is still very easy to paddle and lets you cover some distance with very little effort. The kayak’s shallow V-shaped hull and sharp keel help it track really well.

The primary stability is awesome, which is especially important for beginners. The extra width and the large cockpit make it easy to get in and out, adding to overall comfort. The Sandpiper 130 has a friendly character and will let you have a lot of fun on the water.

What’s lacking from the Sandpiper 130 is the playfulness of Eddyline’s tighter-fitting models. The spacious cockpit also means less connection to the boat and less control when performing advanced paddling techniques such as carving. This boat was designed for relaxed recreational trips.

Construction and Materials

All Eddyline kayaks are made from Eddyline’s proprietary Carbonlite 2000® material. It is a dual-layer sheet of ABS plastic which consists of a load-bearing “muscle” substrate and a very hard, UV- and scratch-resistant exterior layer that gives the kayak its distinctive shine.

Sheets of Carbonlite have different specs depending on the model. To make a kayak, the sheets are heated up and then formed over a mold using vacuum (this technology is known as thermoforming). The top and bottom parts are then glued together, creating a very lightweight but strong construction.

Warranty

Eddyline kayaks come with a 3-year warranty that covers defects in materials and workmanship. The warranty is limited to the original buyer of the kayak. You need to register for the warranty by filling out and returning the warranty registration card or by completing this form on Eddyline’s website).

The deck rigging is warranted for 2 years.
