The most radical and fun playboat ever designed.

More ends, whether on flatwater, pour-overs, eddylines or massive holes than ever before.



Less effort and greater success for linking cartwheels, spits and loops, whether its to win a rodeo, or simply for your added fun factor. Rock swipes, huge Aerial Blunts, Clean 1080's, Clean Cartwheels; the unbeatable list goes on. Proven Slip System grid makes for the loosest hulls ever designed.



This means faster spins on slow waves, or simply surfing faster waves. Raised edges on the patented Hydro-Glide hull for super forgiveness and predictability on ferries, surfing and play-boating your favourite river run. Optional specially designed thruster fins located under the seat tighten up the turn, and make for a faster more defined carve for impressive Aerial moves (without having any affect whatsoever on the boats spin ability).



More footroom and general comfort than any other kayak this small, three-dimensionally adjustable Device 3 seat, and constructed from super-strong, ultra-stiff Xytec plastic for unbeatable performance year after year.

good boat

About myself


I have been paddling for a while now and am a 3* kayaker. I live in colerine.

About the test environment


The Whiterocks, Portrush, quite large surf.

Review


I have never capsized so many times in my life on a wave, this boat is quite unforgiving, it felt as if it was trying to snap me in two when I went under (but I enjoyed it). It is quite fast on waves and it turns like lightning, but it has a very low volume tail so be careful not to lean back when going over waves. It gives a little bit of a bounce at times and is very easy to roll.

I dont think that it would be really a good boat for beginners, but for intermediate upwards it's soooooo much fun!!!

Conclusion


I really enjoyed it and as it is quite an old boat you could pick it up fairly cheap.
