The Flirt features a large planing hull with a bit of kick-rocker at the bow and stern.

It spins better than any boat out there and bounces on command. Arial moves come naturally, opening a new dimension to your fun sensors. Engage the full-length carving rails with aggressive cut-aways at the stern, and hold on for a fast ride. Not happy with the carving yet? Get yourself a set of industry-standard fins (also used on wakeboards and kiteboards) and screw them into the new innovative fin mounting system. The mounting plate can be set at different angles, which means that you can customize the carving performance according to the type of wave you’re surfing. Want to switch to old-style cartwheeling splitwheeling mode? No problem, this boat enjoys being vertical, with the relatively wide ends adding control to the motion. Add the balanced volume to the equation, which is just enough to make the boat retentive in a hole but not so much that it will hinder your flatwater performance, and you get a boat that will rock your world.

Brilliant, now

About the reviewer

I got this boat a few years ago but it was far to big for me but now I am at the top of the recomended weight

Test environment

The cam is a gentle flat river with concrete banks in the city centre area which is great for seal launching and looping, there are also some weirs that are great fun.

Review

This kayak overall is fantastic, as jam at the top of the weight range and have plenty of time to practise, I've managed to master this little beauty, it performs fantastically on flat and white water but is now not great for surfing as it sits quite badly in the water, but o my because I'm heavy as far as it is concerned.

Conclusion

This is a great kayak for the young playboater who has grown out of jacksons or for an introduction to being stupid in a kayak.
