Experience whitewater in a kayak tailored to you with the Nova and Supernova models. These kayaks are designed for 2 different paddler size ranges and offer superior performance and unforgettable experiences.

Safety is priority number one with Dagger, which is why we coined the phrase “Team Tested, Paddler Proven.” Our products go through rigorous testing by our professionals in various environments, so you know that you can trust our product.


Comfort and a customized fit are critical to the Dagger persona, and you will experience unique refinement the moment you sit in Dagger's Contour Ergo Outfitting.


Our kayak design is easy to slice through the water and features a bow volume that provides balance on its end. The stern volume is optimized for smooth end-to-end transitions, and the rocker is tuned for easy vertical play engagement and downriver speed. The wide, flat planning hull keeps you loose on the waves, and the carving rail gives you bite and drive while surfing. Best of all, we've rethought comfort and fit, so the days of cramped downriver kayaks are a thing of the past.


Our kayaks are made from High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) plastic for a longer-lasting, stiffer, and impact-resistant kayak.
