A fun down river kayak

Posted by Jen, on October 13 2013

I used this boat for the Avon Descent in 2010 (yep, that was the record low year) and it was great. I learnt how to paddle in this and it taught me so well. It's a dream in the water, easy to turn, nice and smooth, and the U-shaped hull means it really gets moving when you need it to. It also taught me how to hip steer, which I think is an important skill that is much harder to develop when you have a rudder to rely on! Learning in this boat set me up to make an easy transition into surf skis, into play boats, into canoe polo boats- I definitely recommend it!
