New boats for **small** people/kids

Hi all,

Does anyone tried any of the newer boats designed for smaller people or kids?

I am 4' 11" 108 lbs. I had a Jackson Fun 1.5 previously but found it difficult to hand roll - with much practice I know that would change I might return to that as it is a great river runner for such a small thing! But I would like to try some of the newer designs first.

Since I may be assisting with kayak instructionals, I think I would be most interested in river runners (with play potential).

Thanks!
Annie

Anne,

I have had some success with the Trigger for small women. Also the Kinetic if you can find one.

I'm 5'1" and love my S6 (190). I've done everything from big water to playboating in it.

You cant beat the Jackson Kayak fun series for small people and kids!

These boats are built for small people and kids so when you sit it one there ready to go no retro fitting pads etc.

Hi Annie - maybe we can paddle Deckers again this season! (this Linda from Coloradokayakers). I am going to look for a Trigger to try - I sold my Siren and RPM. Let me know if you try the Trigger - I'd like to hear what you think.

Hey Linda, Scott from the COyakers here, Confluence Kayaks has last years demo Triggers @ 575.00 in good shape and this years to the changes were in the hippads

The EZG 42 is listed for boaters 80-140 lbs you might want to look at it to.

See you on Deckers.

Thanks!

Thanks!

Thanks to all for sharing!

Linda, Rasdoggy -- good to hear from you too! Thanks for the warm welcomes 'back!'

As for the Pyranha S6, I can't find specifications (width, length, weight, cockpit size, etc) on the website. Can anyone provide any details?

Thanks again!

Annie
