The Do It Now is a revolutionary new whitewater sit-on-top kayak that will change the way beginner kayakers view rivers. Be prepared to have your perceptions changed.
The Do It Now completely removes the fear factor of being trapped inside a kayak, which is the biggest obstacle to keeping new paddlers in the sport. It will be the ultimate craft to grow whitewater kayaking.

The Do It Now is a unique whitewater sit-on-top. Contrary to other “whitewater” sit-on-tops that were produced in the past by various companies, the Do It Now has a true whitewater pedigree.

It allows for exactly the same interface between paddler and boat as any whitewater kayak, meaning that the knees, key to boat control, is in fixed contact with the boat. This was achieved by raising the knee area of the sit-on-top high enough for the knees to push against, with short thigh straps to keep the knees in position. This allows the paddler to control the kayak properly by edging the boat accurately when needed, and it also allows the paddler to roll the boat.

Being a sit-on-top, the Do It Now has the advantage of being sealed from water entering the shell. This allows a swimmer to get back onto the boat anywhere in flat or moving water, making swims much shorter and less intimidating. No more swimming to the bank and emptying water out of a heavy boat.

The hull is based on the Bazooka hull but wider, making it a fast, stable, very forgiving sit-on-top, perfect for tackling class 1-3 rapids, and capable of running even higher grade rapids. The boat has ample volume to keep it on top of any whitewater. Adjustable thigh straps and foot braces make it easy to get a comfortable fit. A 8” hatch behind the paddler’s back allows access to the stern. A waterbottle holder is positioned between the legs. 7 Grab handles are positioned conveniently for safety and security. 6 Scupper holes to drain water from the seat compartment round off this perfect package.

The Do It Now will be the ideal kayak school boat and also for paddlers who are afraid of being trapped inside a kayak upside down. It will also be an easy-to-use kayak for instructors and safety kayakers.
