Innova Kayaks Swing I inflatable kayak - Red SWG-0016-105
The Innova Kayaks Swing I red inflatable kayak is the single-person version of its bigger brother, the tandem Swing II. The Swing I is a decked inflatable kayak that cuts through the water perfectly with its sharp lines. This boat responds well in lakes but scoffs at waves and more difficult class II waters. It only takes 5 minutes to inflate, and is easily packed away in a pillow-sized bag. Each Innova inflatable kayak is divided into 3 separate air chambers. A pressure relief valve is installed in the floor chamber to relieve possible over-pressure.
The Swing uses a highly-efficient “tubeless” system on its Nitrylon Lite™ hull. Nitrylon is a rip-stop polyester fabric, which is rubber coated on the interior for air retention, and Teflon treated on the outside for water repellency and stain resistance.
The air-holding seams of the hull are vulcanized and permanently bonded – similar to the way tires are vulcanized. Each chamber is individually tested at the factory for air retention.
The tubeless construction parallels what tire manufacturers went to decades ago – much lighter, but inflates to a higher pressure than competitors’ bladder kayaks (3psi vs. 2psi.). This higher pressure makes the boat stiffer and gives it a snappier paddling performance, especially in rougher water. Competitors’ inflatable kayaks are made using an unreinforced vinyl bladder inside a zip on skin. This makes the boat heavier, and could potentially allow water to get trapped inside, making it difficult to dry and pack away.
The decks of the Swing I are urethane-coated and have zippered access for ease of cleaning and gear storage. The aft zippered deck opens completely in 2 flaps for full access, and each deck has gear bungees. The decks are supported using aluminum arches fore and aft of the cockpit openings. The crosswise set of these arches give the deck shape and structure, and help give the Swing stiffness for when you’re paddling in rough water. When folding the kayak, you take the arches out for a compact folded size, or leave them in for a slightly bigger folded size.
The Swing also comes equipped with a carry handle on each end. If you want to stay dry while out there on the water, pick up a spray skirt in red or black!

Founded over 20 years ago, Innova Kayaks is the North American distributor of popular European inflatable kayaks, manufactured by Gumotex in the Czech Republic. Since then, Innova has sold flat water and moderate whitewater inflatable boats.
Unlike many other inflatables, Innova Kayaks’ boats are made from rubber – not PVC. This rubber material, Nitrylon™, is a lamination of nitrile synthetic rubber and natural rubber over a 1,200-denier, low stretch polyester fabric. Nitrylon™ is very puncture and abrasion resistant, and considerably stronger and better performing than PVC. This same material is actually used in high-end, Zodiac-Type tenders and high-end whitewater rafts. Each Innova boat has 3 main air chambers, plus other small ones for seats, decks, etc. These air chambers are filled to an industry-leading 3 psi, to provide a much more firm hull than the industry standard of 2 psi.
Green is one way to describe Innova Kayaks. PVC gives off dioxins into the environment. Not only is Nitrylon™ stronger and better performing than PVC, but it is also very eco-friendly. It can easily be recycled, and in 2010, Innova started the first inflatable kayak and canoe recycling program.
Convenience & Portability
In this day and age, people are traveling and moving around more than ever before in history. Convenience is becoming less of a luxury and more of a necessity. Innova’s boats fully inflate in just minutes, and when you’re done, they fold up small enough to fit into a bag the size of a small duffle bag. They are lightweight, very easy to carry and transport, and can be stored in tight places – even in an airplane as carry-on.
Over the years, Innova Kayaks has been the recipient of many awards, endorsements, and features in the boat and boat fishing industries. The quality, convenience, and track record of Innova Kayaks proves that they have THE boats you want to own.

I ordered this 3 weeks ago and it was shipped promptly. Today I got to use it for the maiden voyage. Being used to using an Eddtline Whisper double kayak I wondered how stable the inflatable would be. My fears were unfounded. Super stable and heavy enough to pack a week or more cmping gear, its perfect for my neck of the woods. I ordered the optional rudder and the two person deck. I was very impressed with the workmanship in th ekayak and the rudder, and how easy it was to set up. I was also impressed with how easy it was to inflate, although I did have some problemswith the hadn pump. I bought the Advanced Elements dual action pump and the inflation connecto was so loose air would simply escape and it would keep coming disconnected. I managed to fix thw problem by fitting a 1 inch garden hose washer over the end on top of the other washer. Perhaps I should have bought the Innova pump? Howver that was a minor issue and overall I am extremely happy with the Seawave kayak and with the service from Kayakcreek..
We had an awesome experience buying the Advanced Element Kayak, which arrived in a few boxes and it was so easy to inflate right before we enjoyed a nice time at the lake nearby. We highly recommend Creek Kayak for their friendly and fast service!
Nice upgrade from the buckles that originally came with my pieces. I was concerned that the plastic would not be as resilient as the originals, but the clipping mechanism is smooth and they have held up so far. Fast shipping!
My Nucanoe Frontier 12 arrived when promised and in perfect condition. When the second seat arrived with a low seat base, I called Matt and he immediately shipped a higher seat base which arrived a couple of days later. I also received a very nice “Free” paddle with my purchase. Matt must have considered the color of my kayak when he chose the paddle because the colors were very complementary. I would highly recommend Matt and Kayak Creek to anyone looking to purchase a new kayak or accessories.
I really like the boat, Some more information on the set up and location of the adapter valves would be helpful in the package. The set up video could provide some helpful hints but otherwise a great boat and light weight.
Point 65 Martini GTX Modular Kayak - a fun well, engineered kayak
Matt at Kayak Creek provided excellent service! He patiently answered all our questions during several phone calls before making our decision. Delivery of our Point 65 Martini GTX Solo Modular Kayak was prompt, as promised. It's easy-to assemble and travels smoothly on the water. The yellow-orange color is beautiful - distinctive and eye-catching!
I have always wanted to get a kayak, but because if my small frame, I had trouble lifting one over my shoulder to get on a roof rack. I was looking into inflatable and foldable kayaks and found this. It was the perfect solution. Fits in my Mazda 3 hatchback and performs very well for a recreational kayak. Pivots very well and I love the rudder. The 2 sections snaps together very easily and feels really sturdy in the water. Separating the 2 sections is not quite as easy, but once you get the hang of it, it won't be a problem. This was one of the best investments I've ever made. :)
I was pretty skeptical that this kayak was stable enough to stand in for fly fishing, but thankfully I was wrong. After a few casts, I was able to adjust and cast as well as I do off land (if not better since I don't have to worry about my back cast ending up in trees/brush).
Another factor I did not anticipate is just how comfortable it is to be in this kayak. The ability to adjust the seat, stand, and just the design of the seat make it easy to stay in the kayak for 5+ hours at a time.
I would also like to mention the great service I received while purchasing the kayak. I ordered the impulse drive as well, but it happened to be on back-order when I made my order. Matt provided great communication to keep me up to date on the process and shipped it as soon as it was available. I will definitely shop through kayak creek again for any accessories I would like to add to this kayak.
My only real complaint with the kayak is that I feel the storage wells are slightly underwhelming. I don't think they're actually watertight if the kayak somehow fully submerged or flipped. I would have preferred a few buckle latches or something else to provide an air/watertight seal. Even with this though, I would still give the kayak a 5/5 for just how great it performs in every other aspect.
Easy for me to move each piece. Was easy to cary down to water edge and put together. Stayed dry while out in water. A little tough to unhook by myself yet, but very new so I may learn how to disassemble easier as time goes on. But over all super excited for my purchases.
Easy to put together, stable on the water, easy to carry and store, very comfortable seating with enough leg room. Versatile. Read instructions for carrying though, ignoring them could depreciate the strength of the bindings! Overall — excellent, thus far.
I received my kayak and it is in excellent condition! The packaging was very well done and not a scratch on it. The driver was extremely helpful. His truck was too tall to make it down the tree and clear the neighborhood trees so we arranged a time and good place to meet to pick up our Martini in our truck. The driver had a busy day of deliveries but was able to work out a time that was convenient for us to pick it up. Each piece was expertly packed in its own box. I have unpacked all the pieces. I have not been able to take it in the water yet but it looks very well constructed and stable. Plus it has a rudder! I can’t wait to take it out.What I wish the kayak had is a handle to transport it to water’s edge. Without a handle it is cumbersome and heavy. Definitely a two person job. I am going to use it on a lake with a lot of heavy motor boat activity and therefore I purchased a sit in rather than a sit upon. I already own a 65 Point North Tequila sit upon that I use in calm water. It has been a superb purchase.
Best of all, I order a set of paddles and free paddle was included in my order. Now I am anxious to get out on the water. I have made several purchases from kayak creek and consistently had good service.
I recently ordered hardware to carry on my Point 65 Martini modular kayak. The online ordering process was quick, the delivery of the parts fast. My kayak’s original hardware is in great shape and doesn’t need replacing. I just wanted to have spares handy for a trip planned later this year.
I placed an order for spare parts for my Point 65N Martiini modular kayak. The Martini is performing well with no issues- I just wanted to have spares available for a trip later this Summer (I hope). Kayak Creek delivered the complete order promptly. Wonderful advice and service from the company before and after the initial sale!
Huge shout out to Matt! I was shopping around and looking to purchase my first kayak. I had very specific needs and a lot of questions as a newbie.
Making a big investment without seeing the product was a big leap for me but working Matt helped me through this process (before and even after the purchase!)
He was showed a lot of patience and followed up with my many questions, enough that I had enough information and confidence to pull the trigger.
I selected the point 65 kingfisher as storage and transportation was a key factor for me. this kayak breaks down to a manageable size that eventually I can put into my storage closet when not in use, making both me and my girlfriend happy!
The communication and support Matt and Kayak Creek provided exceeded my expectations.
I even referred my cousin who is also in the market for a kayak to Kayak Creek.
This is my initial review and I may post an update when I have new to offer but so far a great experience! Thanks Matt!
I truly appreciated the customer service Matt Morel provided. The kayak I wanted was back ordered by the company, and he kept me updated on the progress for months. He was kind, helpful and a pleasure to work with. Thank you Kayak Creek for your awesome employee.
I did a lot of research on inflatable kayaks. Wanted quality and was willing to pay more for it. Materials was a significant factor. Once I decided on the kayak, ordering from KayakCreek was a most comfortable experience. Matt was very helpful and after finally making my choice and order, I received the kayak in a very timely manner. Great doing online business with Matt and KayakCreek.
