Hey, so i am relativley new to whitewater kayaking, so i was wondering what a good beginner kayak would be. I dont want a playboat, i am looking for a creek boat that is not too pricey but, not a pice of crap either... thanks for your help
Jackson Hero - perhaps the best beginner boat anywhere because of how easy it is to roll and how stable it is, nothing compares.. And this boat won't become obsolete because a lot of good paddlers use it as their choice boat for class 5.
People around here love to plug jacksons, they are good boats but I personally thought the hero paddled like a cardboard box. Just preferance, but a dagger mamba, remix or burn are all good boats and will take you from learning to roll and duffek to class V. And yes the search feature will reveal much.
