Are you ready for the World of Freestyle Kayaking to be yours? The All Star is, the most user friendly and highest performing freestyle boat yet, it is also WAY faster and looser than any play boat Jackson Kayak has had to offer. The overall view of the boat is sleeker and sexier and less stubby compared to previous models.This provides smoother cartwheels, while also bigger loops, more balanced ends that are easier to keep vertical. Hard moves are easier and go even bigger. The All-Star packs even more volume in the same length package as the last All-Star and is 1.5” longer than the Rock Star. An improved rocker profile, with a longer water line makes it faster and looser for wave surfing, which is a good initial grab for anyone trying the boat for the first time. The biggest improvement over the Rock Star is the improvement in the vertical balance, easier cart wheeling, and improved sizing.

The new All-Star spins and grinds like no boat before it, on a wave, and as soon as you get it vertical, the volume balance and the shape of the tips provide a smooth, easy to control cart wheeling, squirting, bow or stern stalling machine.The seating position of the All-Star is a normal position making the river running easy again, while it leaves plenty of room for adding a Sweet Cheeks 200 to raise yourself up if you like lots of leverage. The stern of the All-Star offers more volume and the bow has a slicer tip allowing cartwheels to go easier on the bow as the boat doesn’t sink down as much on the stern.It also launches the boater back in a hole after loops and other aerial moves.

how does this boat preform on flat water as a am looking to get a new play boat but it will be used a lot on flat water but i still want it to preform well on white water. so is this boat ok is it easy to get vertical on flat water or do you know of a better boat or even is the 2010 model better as it has less volume.
many thanks jared
