Riot Thunder

Its bevelled edges make tracking downstream effortless, building speed to punch through stoppers while retaining its stability. Its flat shallow hull lends itself well to surfing, with moderate rocker to help you to spin on that wave. The volume is well distributed with more volume over the front, which will combine with the rocker to help you nail that boof. The thunder is a great option for intermediate paddlers looking to build their skills while still remaining stable and predictable. Its shorter length helps it turn well - it is remarkably responsive, making it a fun and playful learning platform.

The thunder comes with front and rear airbags, and thoughtful outfitting composed of a ratchet backrest system and full foot plate footrests to maintain connectivity out on the water. The thunder comes in 2 sizes for different sized paddlers, allowing everyone to get the most out of this great river runner.

In summary, the thunder is a versatile all round river runner, packed with features for manoeuvrability and surfing.
