The Dagger Kingpin’s been around the block a time or two. It’s a tried and true, slicey cartwheel machine that’s won competitions all over the planet. The great thing about this boat is that it’s super easy to learn the fundamentals of freestyle kayaking in, and then will take you to the outer reaches of the sport as well. If you’re looking for the hottest, newest boat that 2009 has to offer, this is not the Kingpin. If you want something that has been proven to do really well in many different aspects of freestyle and downriver freestyle kayaking, the Kingpin’s a great choice. Another reason to check out the Kingpin is that they are only $795 MRSP.
