Uncanny looseness, which translates into effortless corrections for those just starting out, and the first flat spins for the intrepid. The Booster is a mind-blowing combination. Available in 3 sizes 50,55 and 60 to fit any paddler or paddling style. Playboat or river runner: you decide!
John is an idiot.
Johny, Johny, Johny... Just because you can't paddle doesn't mean this boat isn't any good.
In the flats its no tougher to cartwheel or bowstall than any other boat of this type. Maybe it doesn't wheel like the spud boat that you are way over weight for but considering its an ALL AROUND boat it does pretty well for itself.
The boat surfs like a champion, well that is if you know what your doing Johny old boy. It edges and carves great on waves and will throw ends in a fairly deep whole. And again contrary to what John may believe, it does in fact wavewheel no problem.
The booster makes an excellent beginner-intermediate boat.

Booster 50 Awesome boat
I started paddling last year, and read all the reveiws on the booster so i got a booster 50.
The outfitting was pretty good. I liked the ratchet thigh braces and the footpegs you could really get tight in the boat. The backband fell down around your ass but a quick tug fixed that after getting in and then again ratchet it down. Mine had a power seat in it and was easily adjustable forwards and backwards.
The boat was ridden in maine on the Kennebec, Mattawamkeag, Penobscot, W. Branch, the Souadabscook and a few rivers and playspots around maine. No real badass class V stuff but some good stuff. It surfed real well, edges were amazing on a wave, carving was a breeze, it's much edgier than the G force that I ride now and real fun, and it spun and backsurfed like a champ. I find me G force is a little easier to spin however.
It got around the river pretty well eddying and ferrying due to the length and edges. Flatwater it wasn't bad either. It bow stalled real high no matter where the seat was, and flatwater cartwheeling was definitely not impossible, just about the same as my buddies ultrafuge. Both ends almost idential volume wise. It was real fun to wavewheel, no problems there.
I don't know what that other dude is talking about with the egdes and the rocker gettin in the way, i think he's in an idiot. My buddy agreed this boat lived up to the hype of being an awesome beginner & intermediate boat. Don't read the other review, dude's got no idea.

i have recently paddled the worst playboat i have ever been in i borrowed it of a friend after reading various glowing reviews about this atrocity the boat carves well but that is all it is good for. it has strange edges which means that to cartwheel you have to get the boat to a near impossible angle and you can forget about wave wheels, this boat is of course the riot booster!!! i hope that nobody else has fallen into the trap of buying this boat, what were they thinking when they designed this piece of crap??? and oh my god what
ell is that outside my window
any way ive said my piece. good bye.
