Mirage 520 Kayak


Mirage 520 Kayak, proudly Australian made and owned, and an icon of the Australian Kayaking Industry for 30 years.


Mirage 520
Shorter and wider than its big siblings, the 520 is a great first kayak to build your skills. With that extra bit of stability and a lightweight build that makes moving and storage a breeze, the 520 is also sleek and fast through the water.

PLEASE NOTE: As each and every Mirage kayak is made to order and hand-crafted, there is a varying wait time on new boats.
