The Snyder Bros and Attila have done it again!

First off, if you dont know these guys, they are legends in the old school boating scene.

So anyway, I thought some folks on here could appreciate this.

The worlds first hardshell ducky, yes its a self bailing boat, but it ain't for riding on your ass. This here is a stand up boat...

Jim designed it twenty something years ago...but now its real. Attila (custom inflatables) made the bindings/outfitting.




Here's its madden voyage down the top yough (swallow falls V)



Gnar!

That looks pretty nimble. Do you have shots of the "bindings"?

I hope he doesn't break his legs/ankles on that cockpit rim. I guess this will be faster and snappier into eddies than the inflatable stryders?

Ill bother Jim and see if he has any pics of the finished outfitting. I have a feeling something goes around the rim of that cockpit. That pic is on the casselman river without any outfitting, sup style.

Here's Jim's response to my request for pics of the outfitting.

"Hi Jesse- no I'm afraid I don't - sorry- Jeff has a few on his camera but he doesn't have a computer. It's a work in progress anyway. he got his first roll today- took a few tries to get it and we have some tweaks in our future- might try again on Monday- then he's in for surgery on Tuesday and we lose our jockey for the rest of the summer"

So hopefully some pics after the weekend.
