pungo 100 on the nantahala

About the reviewer

52 yr old father of a kayak freak

Test environment

class ii, class iii


Nestled in a steep gorge, the Nantahala shimmers through its mild but exciting rapids. Kayaking on the Nantahala River offers eight miles of practice on easy Class II rapids before splashing through the exciting Class III whitewater of Nantahala Falls. This is one of America’s most popular whitewater runs, so expect to see other paddlers playing in the waves. After making this run on two different days, this rec boat deserves a little more than just a passing glance. I'm not a novice but not a true enthusiast but, I found the pungo 100 easy to paddle thru all parts of the river and even caught more surf time than some of the play boats in my group.


love this easy to paddle stable and versitle boat
