Don glad you liked the video...I was a little stiff paddling. I had a recent minor back injury that has taken a little flexibility out of me for who nows how long.
When I said it was the best river runner or creeker I had paddled...well key word it I...I am speaking from my experiences. That video was shot as moderate flows with some rock grinding and the diesels haul chines did not bother me. I if was a drift creeker I would not like the boat...but I am not I drive my boat through rapids and the design is fast and works well for my style.
The whitewater kayak industry is competitive which makes for really good designs or just good marketing that polishes a turd so that it will sell. If I was going to buy a kayak this year I would actually try the pyrannha boats as well because they have very polished looking designs as well... from the hardware, lines, outfitting and "usually" that equals better performance.
When I am not kayaking....
If skateboarding it would have been a acid drop...this is a LSD drop or bomb drop.
