Necky Jive 8'10" for Grand Canyon

I'm lucky enough to be paddling the Grand in July/Aug. I'm staring at a newly acquired Necky Jive 8'10" for the trip. It's super comfortable, I'm about 190 lbs, 5'10". My main goal for the Grand in so far as paddling is epic long surfs, dicey big water lines, eddy-line-squirts and the occasional rock-splat.

I usually paddle a Burn for creeks or flood-stage and a 420 for anything Class IV not at flood. I've heard you want speed in the Grand, which is why the Jive has been added to my quiver.

Thoughts? Opinions?

Also, would the purple Jive look better with Fishman Doughnuts? I think so.

I just did the GC in May with a LL CR125......really really wished I had a larger, faster boat. Jive should be good.
