Some great things coming out of Jackson Kayak for 07 Creek'n

Hey there...

Just thought I would get the word out on some great news from Jackson Kayak for our 07 line coming out around October/Novemberish... We are all about the creek'n in 07 and have brought on a tremendous team of creek boaters to help us with design and market research. Ben Stookesberry and Jessie Combs of the No big Names and Hotel Charley videos have been big parts of our new designs, as they require a big focus on expedition capabilities and HUGE drops. Also, Clay Wright and Jay Kincaid have been tearing it up in these boats and really stoked on where we are headed.

We are coming out with 3 sizes of the Rocker line. "Punk Rocker", "Rocker", and "MEGA Rocker". All of which are re-designed and are looking very sweet!!! ( www.jacksonkayak.com ) You will notice that the bow was raised a couple inches and the stern a tad as well. The "Boat Armor" outfitting is totally bomber and has held up extremely well this season.

The Punk Rocker is going to be a really solid (cross link of course) beefy creekboat, but for smaller people. At 7"10 and 68 gallons it could be the best sized boat for the ladies, and young kids out there.

The Rocker, although one my personal favorites in 06 will be even better in 07 with some of the changes going on to the hull. This boat is wonderfully stable and has ultra minimal quirks to it. I love how this one performs when in the sketchy stuff!

The Mega Rocker!!! This is going to be a huge hit for those out there get'n after it. With design help from Ben/Jessie this Big boy is ready for full expedition kayaking. Don't be fooled by the volume, it's not a hog, but rather perfectly designed for reserve volume in around the decking and provides for quick and stable resurfacing while again having the needed goods for big drops and big cojones!!!

More to come, but just so pumped up I thought I would share the news.
