Slate River Kayaks
introduces the
Nyami Nyami!!

Who We Are
Slate River Kayaks is small company dedicated to producing the highest quality, best performing two-person whitewater kayaks available. Based in Madison, Wisconsin, the company was formed by two whitewater enthusiasts who wanted a tandem kayak specially designed for the steep creeks of Michigan's Upper Pennisula.

Our Kayak
We sell only one boat design, the Nyami Nyami. Named after the African river god, the Nyami Nyami is a 2-person whitewater designed for performance. Heavily rockered, the boat turns very quickly for excellent steep creeking and surfs surprisingly easy. The expedition weight hull is extremely rugged and is capable of taking incredible abuse.
