River-Play and Surf Kayaks

River Running and Playboating Kayaks for Whitewater Use

Not aimed at beginners into the sport, these high performance white-water and surf kayaks have been designed for speed and the ability to make the most out of river and wave features. All have low volume sterns, designed to slice through the water, an essential attribute for pivot turns and stern/tail manoeuvrers. This style of kayak is perfect for 'playing' the river, and carving up green river waves or ocean surf. With these moves in mind and the performance design they can take some getting used to, and perhaps are better suited for intermediate and experienced kayakers, or aspiring white-water shredders.
