Nick Schade's bespoke Petrel Kayaks are stunning pieces of design, built to paddle. The boats echo Inuit and Aleut forms and are custom-built from wood, carbon, and Kevlar to suit your height, weight, and desired use. They're slippery and quiet while still being exceptionally maneuverable. [$28,850; bespokeglobal.com]
