This is a kids Rock Star! Sized 1/2 way in between a Shooting Star and Small Rock Star, it fills the gap that has been missing from the industry since the beginning of time. Kids growing through the range from the Fun 1 to the Shooting Star now have the right size boat to graduate after the Shooting Star. This is a 100% performance oriented boat based on the World Championships winning 2016 Rock Star.

It is designed to allow kids to learn freestyle, and for those who are already on their way, to perfect it and really shine on their home wave, or in the next World Championships. Lightweight, durable, dry, and comfortable, this 2016 design will be around for many years. Here is what Team Jackson's, Abby Holcomb, has to say about it: "I can't wait until I can paddle this boat! A barely fit in my shooting star so perfect timing! Thank you again! "


Product Features

1 - Right-sized Kids Boat
Kids around the world are graduating from the Fun 1, to the Shooting Star, but then have a major gap where no boat is an appropriate size for them. This boat will be THE boat that fills that void.

2 - High Performance Hull
It surfs like a dream- faster hull helps catch and stay on waves, but the real difference is in how much narrower the hull is, making it much nicer for dropping edges and carving. It feels like a much sportier, friendlier boat on a wave. Easier to surf and learn tricks, flatter hulls that are way looser/easier to spin, all while providing better top end performance.

3 - Classic JK whitewater outfitting
All the ease of adjustability of JK whitewater boats.

4 - Balanced Volume
Perfect balance of volume to give big air for loops, etc.., but lower volume ends for easily getting vertical as a beginner or expert.

5 - Snappy/Efficient Take-Offs
Taking off the water is much snappier and takes less energy by far due to the narrow hull and faster hull. Back moves seem about 50% easier and front moves about 25% easier.
