I'm new to whitewater kayaking. I've been doing flat water for only about a year or so and own a Tsunami for this... I like camping and such, so I figured the Remix XP was a good choice. I'm sure a lot of people ask about this boat and ask if it's right for them and such, but I'm curious, where does this boat lack for whitewater kayaking?
For instance, do the foot pegs instead of a bulkhead cause concern in a whitewater situation above Class III (I told you I'm new to this!
Obviously its length is somewhat of an issue, but, I'm curious, the 9 foot version is only a few inches longer than the Dagger Nomad 8.5, which I've heard is highly recommended? What else? Why do they only rate this boat for Class III rapids, where as a boat like the Nomad can do Class V?
Any comments will certainly help me learn what to look for in a whitewater boat that I can use for some weekend/week-long trips with some whitewater!
