Founded by Bill Masters in the early '70s, Perception® is often credited with creating and nourishing the modern kayak movement. Under his leadership, Perception pioneered the rotational molding of plastic kayaks, a breakthrough that drastically reduced the expense and maintenance associated with composite hulls. The employment of this new technology opened up the sport to people who previously could not afford it.

Now a member of the Confluence Watersports® family, Perception continues to deliver high-performance cutting-edge kayaks to those of you looking to enjoy the sport.
