New School Kayak Old School Outfitting

Corran Addison has recently offered his new F Bomb kayak with Hooptie outfitting. Essentially a new hull design with stripped backed outfitting that can be customised by its owner. Having paddled for over 30 years I remember outfitting boats with bit of foam and plenty of glue. I for one think that this is an excellent idea.

Pyranha 12R

Clearly the April Fool post from Pyranha this year has gained some traction. They announced the production of a 12R long boat seven months ago as a bit of a joke but it seems that they are actually going to put it into production if they get enough preorders.

Zet Introduces The Five

Having just been discussing the lack of new boats from ZET over the last few days it looks like they do have a new kayak for 2018. From the specifications it looks like the Five is designed to address the challenges from the new crop of short (sub 9ft) whitewater kayaks.

Zet Introduces The Five

ZET kayaks introduces the FIVE, the fifth boat in its lineup. Developed together with top paddlers and the ZET team, this new kayak brings all the components a kayaker can wish for in a boat for active moves on whitewater. FIVE is an aggressive whitewater boat, gliding nicely over waves and holes, accelerating like a demon and holding its line without any reduction in speed.

Pyranha 9R Vs The Machno

Team Pyranha kayaker Mark Mulrain takes a closer look at the 9R and Machno from Pyranha.

So the latest and greatest Pyranha Kayak has been released and been around for a while now, The Machno. This boat is Pyranha’s take on the latest generation of creekers. It’s faster, has a bit more edge and a more developed rocker profile than the big, round, safe-but-boring creekers of old. I think you’d see the same kind of trends in most of today’s designs.
