Hey beginners, I just noticed this boat in the swap: Pyranha S6 200. This is an admittedly old-school play boat, but is purely awesome for down-river play for a 175-200 lb paddler. Fair price too at $250. Former me would have picked this up in a heartbeat!
Why do I love this boat so much?
It's faster than a modern playboat, which is good for down-river confidence.
It surfs like a machine.
It's a rockered little monster and boofs quite well.
Low volume stern/bow initiates cartwheels very easily.
Low volume stern teaches you to keep aggressive forward paddling position or else, bitch-slap!
Where should you paddle this dream?
Ark baby! This is a down-river play machine. Wow your friends by splatting endo rock at high flows!
And no, I'm not the seller, I just have love for the S-6. She's like that hig hschool girlfriend that you tried all sorts of weird shit with. It was award and sloppy, but she was totally into it! That's the S-6. A dirty little girl that loves to have fun.
