About

The OutCast sets the bar for weight, stability, maneuverability and speed. The only obstacle to outfitting your boat is your own imagination. Kayak fishing just got a whole lot more exciting!

The OutCast is a no-compromise boat. We designed it and built it so that fishermen don't need to choose between speed, maneuverability, and stability. We also wanted a boat that was so light that anyone could load it on their car by themselves and get on the water when the fish are biting.

 We set out to build a boat that held true to three core values:

1. Design a kayak that gets you out on the water faster than ever before

By using the lightest aerospace materials, the OutCast allows fishing and paddling enthusiasts of all genders, shapes and sizes to get from their home to the water as quickly and as easily as possible. No need for trailers, pickup trucks or friends to help you load the boat onto your car roof.

2. Build the strongest construction ever

The great thing about the OutCast is there is nothing like it. It is the only composite fishing kayak made today. The boats are made from aerospace and marine grade materials including carbon fiber, fiberglass, and Innegra containing fabrics and exotic aerospace foams that provide structural support in high stress areas. Carbon fiber offers an incredible strength to weight ratio (carbon fiber is ten times stronger and five times lighter than steel). Our material choices allow our boats to be incredibly light, have outstanding impact resistance and last for many years.

3. Make everything in North America. 

There is no better way to ensure that every boat is of the highest quality than to have it built by top engineers, using the most advanced materials and tested by professional fishermen.  

Major fishing companies like Scotty® and Douglas® are so excited that they partnered with us to get these boats to your doorstep!

  • Extremely light: less than 40 lbs. (Carbon OutCast less than 30lbs.)
  • 12'6" feet in length 
  • Built for strength and lifetime durability 
  • Designed to be more stable while casting
  • Made with aerospace composite materials 
  • Adaptable and versatile with many attachment options
  • Made in America

You won't believe how light this boat really is!

Lift with ease!
Lift with ease!

Weighing in at less than 40 pounds (Innegra/fiberglass) and less than 30 pounds (Innegra/carbon fiber), the OutCast eliminates the need for expensive trailers, trailer licenses, body builders, and well made plans. The OutCast is the first composite fishing kayak designed to get out and fish, no strings attached.

 WHO WE ARE

Up the Creek PaddleWorks is a marriage between Lendal North America, manufacturer of the best expedition kayak paddles made, and LM Design, one of the top 3D modeling and design firms in the US, with a client list consisting of Google, Remington Medical, Bloomberg, Bausch + Lomb, SIG Sauer and Ruger to name just a few. We are a company of world-class engineers and material scientists who also happen to be die-hard fishermen. We bring the experience and manufacturing expertise to deliver our KickStarter boats not just on time but boats that will set a new standard in performance and build quality. Our backers only have to look at Lendal and see that we sell our paddles from Chile to Australia, and they are paddled in some of the most extreme conditions from the Arctic to the Antarctic and all places in between. This business experience should give our backers peace of mind.

THANKS 

This is one time loving an OutCast is a really good thing! You can even bring this OutCast home to meet mom and dad...

Here's wishing you a lot of tall tales and many fish...

We want to thank you for following our launch as we aim to change the kayak fishing industry...

Risks and challenges

We have been manufacturing kayaking equipment for years, so we understand the risks and challenges that come with building world-class products meant to last a lifetime.

That being said, we know that there will be bumps and bruises along the way, there always are. That is why, in preparation for the launch of this revolutionary fishing kayak, we have built a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Rochester, NY, USA. Here we will handle all production, so that we can make sure that every step of the process is high-quality and highly efficient.

This boat has been through over 5 renditions, tested by professional fishermen and has the seal of approval of partner companies like Douglas Outdoors®, Scotty® and Lendal North America®.

The only risk to you is fishing too much!
