Robin Hood Watersports have the full Waka kayaks 2018 lineup. It’s great to see them lined up with one another.
Check them out.
Steve Muir has created this superb Avenger 9X (A9X) composite creek boat.
Thanks to Evan Rowbottom we’ve got some shots of Wavesports yet to be named WW kayak on whitewater.
Wavesport revealed this interesting looking prototype at Paddle Expo 2017 this week. As yet the new kayak doesn’t have a name, but expect it to be hitting the water next year.
Rapid Magazine have put together this great walkthrough with Chris Gragtmans of the new Dagger Phantom. Probably my next new creek boat.
We’ve just had this in direct from Spade Kayaks.
Olli Grau has put the following Black Jack detail together:
The Spade Kayaks Black Jack is a modern white water kayak that perfectly bridges the gap between a river runner and a creek boat. High volume and high rocker give him the dry line ability and bouancy that a full on creek boat needs. A flat bottom and a pronounced rail deliver dynamic reactivity even on mellower waters.
I met with the guys from Spade Kayaks almost two years ago in Nuremberg at the Paddle Expo. Despite the Ace of Spades only being out for a short period of time I asked them about the next kayak. Even then a design called the Black Jack or “Jack” was already being thought about.
Today (22 August 2017) the Black Jack will start coming of the production line. The Ace of Spades, Spade kayaks first production kayak was and still is blow molded.
If Unsponsored were to design and release a brand new kayak into the current market place what would it look like?
Lets go through a few design ideas and see where we end up.
Pat Keller talks us through the new Liquidlogic Delta V kayak.
Brian Vermillion recently got his hands on the new Pyranha Machno (small) and took it down the Cheoah.
Cheoah release was last Saturday, and I was lucky enough to get a full lap in while testing out the Pyranha Machno. I chose to use the Machno small, which ended up being the perfect size for me. At 5’5” and 150lbs the small Machno at 73 gallons was perfect for this gem of a run.
