Now Available – the new 2012 Airis Play Inflatable Kayak from Walker Bay

Just arrived! The newly redesigned high-pressure Airis Play inflatable kayak from Walker Bay is now lighter, longer and more compact! Easy to maneuver, whether you are exploring, or tackling whitewater!


Utilizing a proprietary AirWeb High Pressure Construction, the Airis Play can be inflated up to six times the maximum air pressure of other inflatable kayaks! Airis Kayaks are so rigid and stable, getting in and out is easy, leaving you free to go for a swim or snorkel part way through your paddle without fear of tipping or rolling.


The Airis Play’s shorter length makes it easy to maneuver, whether you are exploring, or tackling whitewater. Take the Airis Play exploring in coves, dive from it on a snorkeling adventure, or take it out in surf or river whitewater. Play is suitable for calm or whitewater. With the included AirPack, now you can take fun with you, wherever you go!

  1. Hello There, this new design thou lighter looks like it will not perform like
    the Aires Velocity. Also, since it is half the price I suspect comparing the two
    Would be like comparing apples to oranges. I could be wrong but it would be nice if you let me know whether my assumptions are true or not.

    • I own the Velocity. They are different, but my feeling was that I almost like the Sport better. Certainly it is shorter, and doesn’t have the integrated storage. But that is one of the points that brought the pricepoint down on the Sport.
      It is 1.5 feet shorter, but is lighter weight and I felt handled great – just less whiz-bangs to get the price down. I really liked it and my husband loved it (he likes open tops best).
