Did you mean stern squirt? This boat should do it just fine. It should surf well too!

I'm interested in this boat as well. Looks like a lot like a sub 7-0 M/L (great boat by the way, surfing machine!) but seems to answer all the problems I had with that boat, ie. not to comfy, not the easiest boat to roll and in need of a little more cockpit volume. I'm looking forward to demoing one.

I just purchased one last month and brought it down Cataract Canyon. As a river runner, it held really good hull speed, and punched through big hits just fine. It was super stable, ferried well, and I didn't feel like I was having to brace constantly to keep the bow or stern from getting sucked down by big water currents. When punching through some strong eddy lines the bow submerged easily. If you lean forward a little your squirting, and if you keep your body centered and brace, the hull speed keeps momentum into the eddy. As for surfing this boat is super fast and super loose. It's absolutely a blast on the wave.

topic bump

Now that it's mid-March, and thinking there might be some thawing somewhere.... has anybody else been paddling the Varun at all? Would be really interested to read people's opinions. Wondering about the weight-ranges and overall foot comfort, too. At 6'3" and 195, size 12 feet, looking for a little leg & foot room in a loose, slicey boat. Tired of the chopped-off ultra tight playboats anymore......
