Verus Kayaks Hellbender Walkthrough

The Hellbender is Verus Kayaks first full slice design, and a new addition to our 2020 lineup. This boat was born from a craving for cartwheels and a dream of a slicey boating revolution. Combining a modern hull and outfitting, with classical inspiration from the days of rodeo, this boat is your go-to fun machine. This is the perfect craft to squirt, splat and style up your local run!

Pyranha Ripper – Review

I’ve been boating for well over 30 years so have been well placed to see the development of the sport and particularly the design of kayaks. Kayak manufacturers are now looking back to the longer slicey kayaks that were around in the late 1990s and early 2000s and I for one am really happy that longer slicey kayaks are back. I will say now that if you have only ever paddled poppy high volume short boats or super stable creekers then you need to find yourself a slicey kayak to try. At 9ft long (medium) the Pyranha Ripper could be a contender.

Pyranha Ripper - Review

The Pyranha Ripper is one of the first modern slicey kayaks to come from one of the major players in the game that has also been widely available here in the UK. At 6ft 2″ and 200lbs I am above the recommended weight limit for the medium Ripper (145-190lbs). Nevertheless, that is the kayak I am reviewing here. In addition to the medium the Ripper is also available in small with a weight guide of 88 – 165lbs with a large sized Ripper available very soon.

It’s that Liquidlogic kayak again. Ryan Mcavoy has one of those slicey Liquidlogic prototypes and has posted a number of videos on-line.
