Attention: Numbers supplied are pre-production estimates.

The s6f is designed as a next generation high performance easy to paddle freestyle boat that will compliment both the s6x and S6 boats in the range.

It incorporates features from proven designs combined with new thinking from
the renowned team at Pyranha and is a package that neatly and efficiently
delivers the ability for people to progress their freestyle paddling past
their current boundaries with ease and a big smile on their faces.

The s6f incorporates the following key benefits:

Easy going: The modified double chine hull, rounded sidewalls and softer
rail make for a super reliable ride with no surprises. A bow-lifter helps
creates lift, reducing pearling while doing moves on surfing waves.

High Performance: A lengthened planning section with front and rear rocker
breaks combining slight kickers and a modified volume distribution make the
s6f feel balanced and deliver snappy, stable, fast and controllable moves.
The s6f can be retro fitted with both front and rear power pocket enhancers
for extra lift and control while looping and a set of fins for precise
directional drive on bigger waves or ocean surf.

Benchmark control & comfort: more foot room and the improved syncro 04
outfitting delivers even better support and now accepted industry leading
fully adjustable precise control and enhanced comfort you expect from
Pyranha.

This boat is alright to learn in

About myself


I am a Class 3+ boater that took this down the Paint creek and many other rivers.

About the test environment


Paint creek is a little creek that has some technical moves.

Review


This is a great Playboat that I couldn't get up to speed in. I bought this as my second boat and just couldn't use it. Granted I was using it for the wrong type, but damn it was hard to paddle flatwater in. Unless you are just going to park and play don't even think about this boat. My feet were also extremely cramped until I put in Happy Feet. That gave me some room.

Conclusion


If you can hack great playboating moves this is the boat for you! But if you are a boater where there is miles between the rapids don't get this boat.
