Vagabond Kasai Angler - Leisure Kayak

This angler version of our fast and stable Kasai sit-on-top kayak has all the features of its sibling as well as fishing-specific additions.

Two Rod Holders are positioned next to the hatches (8″ Day Hatch and 8″ Screw Hatch), behind the seat. Swing yourself around, with your legs hanging over the side, to access the hatches and to work with your rods.

Use the Deck Rails, which are positioned on either side of the seat, to customise your setup by attaching gadgets like cameras, GPS units and fish finders. An Anchor Trolley is also installed on the right side of the kayak. Use this to position your anchor to keep the boat in the perfect location and angle.

Stretch your legs without making landfall by standing up on our Stand-up Platform. While you’re up, use the advantage of your height-above-water to view your surroundings. The platform is also stable enough for just about anyone to stand and cast from.

The large rear tankwell has Crate-Holding Indents to hug a crate. Attach tie-downs, straps or bungee cords to the Multifits positioned around the tankwell to secure your gear and prevent it being washed overboard by a rogue wave.

The Kasai Angler can carry a lot of weight. If you want to load a lot of gear or intend to catch some big fish and take them home, this boat is the ticket. The boat has good speed too, so it is great for covering longer distances and for trawling too.

CHILDREN

Although children will love playing on the Kasai Angler, it is a substantial kayak that they will find to be heavy to move and manoeuvre. They will not experience the performance or responsiveness of this kayak purely because it will be too big for them. For fishing, children are better suited to the Tarka Angler kayaks.

DOG FRIENDLY

The Kasai’s large rear Tankwell is perfect for your dog – if you have not filled the tankwell with fishing gear. If you do take your dog out, line the tankwell with a foam mat to prevent their paws sliding so that they can sit upright to enjoy the scenery. 

FLATWATER

The Kasai Angler is a dream on flatwater. Its four-metre length gives it superb speed. 

TOURING

The Kasai Angler is great kayak for touring with decent speed, and lots of stability, comfort and storage space for multi-day trips.

FIISHING

Solid and stable, and with plenty of space, Kasai Angler is a great fishing kayak. Kasai Angler comes with two flush-mounted Rod Holders, Deck Rails (to customise the deck by attaching gear and accessories) and an Anchor Trolley.

OCEAN

On the ocean, the Kasai Angler performs superbly. Thigh Straps attached to the Clip Rings will keep you on the deck should a wave catch you by surprise and they allow for greater control. Use the Tankwell, 8″ Screw Hatches and 8″ Day Hatch to securely stow gear. From one-day to multi-day trips, the Kasai Angler is an excellent seaworthy kayak. 

OCEAN SURF

The Kasai Angler enjoys surfing smaller waves, but for real wave surfing, get our Dumbi kayak instead.

WHITEWATER

While river tripping is a pleasure on the Kasai Angler, keep to sections of river with smaller rapids. Use Thigh Straps attached to the Clip Rings for better control. 

SUP

We don’t recommend paddling the Kasai Angler from a standing position but we do recommend standing up on the Stand-Up Platform to stretch your legs while you’re out on the water.

Vagabond is a small but very dynamic kayak company. The range of high-performance recreational and white-water kayaks are all designed and manufactured in-house on state-of-the-art equipment. The Vagabond team is made up of five partners. Together, they are the magic behind the brand – uniting their passions and skills and experiences. Between them, The partners have over 140 years of paddling experience!


The small South African town of Parys, on the banks of the Vaal River, is the place that Vagabond calls home. It is here that everything happens, from design, development and manufacturing to testing prototypes on the rapids and flatwater sections of the Vaal River.

WHAT MAKES Vagabond DIFFERENT

Vagabond is a kayak brand whose partners have a collective 140 years of paddling experience between them. But this doesn’t make the brand any different to many other brands created and run by kayakers. It is how and why we do things that sets us apart.

Easy-to-use, high-performance kayaks

Vagabond focus is on making high-performance kayaks that are easy-to-use. We want recreational paddlers to enjoy paddling well-designed and crafted kayaks that are suited to their activities. This means that Vagabond boats have speed and stability. Indeed, Vagabond boats are not just blobs of plastic dished up to the inexperienced as a ‘recreational kayak’. No, no, no! Vagabond believe that for social, casual and infrequent paddlers to really enjoy the experience of paddling, that Vagabond kayaks must be good. Very good.

Vagabond kayaks are so good that experienced paddlers (and their children) will love taking these kayaks on dams, rivers and the sea. Fast, easy-to-use and a pleasure to paddle, Vagabond is your first choice when it comes to choosing a kayak.

Launching a new kayak company with 15 kayaks

Vagabond launched with 11 unique designs plus four angler versions – that’s unprecedented! Instead of launching with a boat or two and adding new models each year, Vagabond had the pleasure (and pressure!) of being able to design and develop a full range in one go. The range has a consistent appearance and key features – like the Paddle Cutaways – are common to all designs. Our designs are all new and as such there are no old versions.

The best fittings on every Vagabond kayak

The fittings are the best that Celliers Kruger has designed – and he has designed many drain plugs, hatches, thigh straps and attachment fittings during his career. In addition to those fittings commonly found on kayaks, Vagabond kayaks also feature Celliers’ innovative Multifit, Scupper Venturi and Footrest fittings.

We do not have different grades of fittings for different boats. We have only one type of each fitting; the very best design of the highest quality. Every boat gets the same treatment; from the Kwando (children’s sit-on-top) to the double-seater Mazowe and the Vubu whitewater creekboat. Nothing but the best for every model.

Vagbond kayaks suit a specific purpose or fill a gap in the market

Worldwide, there are dozens of kayak companies. Vagabond is not looking to just put more kayaks into stores. With more than two decades in the kayaking industry, Vagabond has identified gaps in the market and have created kayaks for specific purposes.

With this in mind, you won’t see Vagabond launching a ‘new’ model every year where the only change has been to the colour of the boat. Instead, new models will be carefully considered and created to respond to a need in the market.
