Dagger Nova and Supernova

Many years ago, most white-water paddlers spent as much time playing the river as they did attempting to get down it upright and in one piece. Having fun and utilising the rivers features (both rocks and currents) to perform tricks moves that not only looked impressive but showed great boat control and were fun to perform. The Dagger Nova and SuperNova (the same design, just different sizes) are based on these classic full-slice kayaks, but with a modern twist and up-to-date outfitting to offer greater safety and connection to the kayak.

Not suitable for tackling the hardest of rapids, these boats have extremely sharp rails and are designed to catch the water, assisting the boat to get on end and slice through the water rather than float on top of it. Perhaps not best suited to beginners or newcomers to white-water as these boats are considered relatively unstable and unforgiving. However in the right hands, or for those aiming to make the most of their local run or course these kayaks will take your paddling to the next level!

Only available in Daggers Play Spec. With heaps of adjustability, the Dagger Super Nova and Dagger Nova are very comfortable boats to paddle combined with the solid pillar and bulkhead makes either of these boats amongst the safest playboats available.
