I had the opportunity to paddle it just for a sec here on pine creek. Keep in mind, it was low, but it was really fun. I don't know of any boat that can hit the top boof to slot,,, and surf the crap out of the first wave. I understand there may be some slight changes from the prototype. The front end is like a snub-nosed shiva. for a small boat, it sure does boof. I bet in big water you could sail this thing off some waves. Can't wait to try it with more water, i bet it's a hoot.
