Stratford Sea Cadets Have High Praise for Fatyak Kayaks

Stratford Sea Cadets test out the Fatyak Kaafu

Stratford Upon Avon Sea Cadets are part of the UK’s oldest nautical youth charity, and the cadets have been trying out the Fatyak Kaafu.

This is some of the feedback the cadets have given us:

‘Loved it!’
‘I like how you can pull your knees up.’
‘It’s really smooth on the water.’
‘You can go really fast.’

The staff also loved it and they found that for some of our more nervous beginnings the sit on top Fatyak Kayak offers a good starting point as they can often feel a little claustrophobic in a standard kayak and worry about getting out if they tip.

So thank you so much, the cadets are having so much fun on the Fatyak and will continue to do so all summer.

Every year Stratford Sea Cadets take part in the Stratford-upon-Avon River Festival.  This is a huge event for the town and being Stratford it is also a big draw for tourists and the river is right at the heart of the town.  Every year there are cadets on the river in their rowing boats and kayaks demonstrating their skills.  This year there will be a cadet on a Fatyak and also a stand within the festival area on the river bank publicising the Sea Cadets, recruiting new cadets/volunteers and fundraising.  Fatyak will be providing a Hono Bodyboard for a raffle prize plus other great givaways!

Warranty Update

Fatyak Warranty Update

We are proud to announce that we are now increasing the warranty on all of our kayak and board range. The warranty will go from 12 months to 36 months and is effective immediately. This reflects the confidence we have in our range of products.

Fatyak WarrantyOur kayaks and boards are long lasting and are designed to handle a lot of wear and tear. Over recent years of developing and selling our products we have constantly improved our quality control process, as well as our manufacturing process.

Quality Control

To make sure we can back up our claims of a high quality product (as well as the glowing reviews we get from the community!) we implement a 4 stage quality check system throughout the manufacturing process. This ensures that the Fatyaks are fit for purpose in every way. All products undergo inspection for moulding defects, visual examinations by the shift leader, examinations as bagged or stored, as well as an examination on dispatch. Additionally, each Fatyak undergoes a check against 3 key criteria as part of a customer-focused approach to assess potential risk. These include:

Functionality, such as performance and longevity.
Aesthetics, considering how the product will meet our customers’ expectations.
Legal requirements, ensuring that the product complies with or exceeds necessary standards.
And if any defects are discovered are recorded against the product’s unique serial number and investigated – allowing us to amend process, implement training, or increase control checks if needed to stop any further failures.

Our quality checking system is independently verified by external auditors to the British ISO 9001:2008 standard. With this, you know we can be relied upon!

Each of our products has an unique serial number printed on it. This helps with identity, so in the unlikely event of a warranty claim, making it easy trace back through our manufacturing process.
