"The founder of Ocean Kayak, Tim Niemier, came up with the concept of a sit on top kayak by taking a surf board and carving out an area to sit and an area to store his dive gear," explains Sara Knies, Ocean Kayak Marketing Director. "Today, many thousands and thousands of boats later, we're the world's largest manufacturer of sit-on-tops and look forward to continuing our leadership position in the marketplace."
From humble beginnings on the beaches of Malibu, California to a place at the table in Johnson Outdoors Watercraft Division, Ocean Kayak has stayed true to its roots in performance, innovation and passion for the outdoors. Ocean Kayak was one of the first brands to start manufacturing and selling rotationally molded sit-on-top kayaks and the brand continues to innovate today through new products including the Trident Ultra 4.7 fishing kayak, Nalu 12.5 hybrid paddleboard and the motorized Torque.
