Dane Jackson gives a complete bow-to-stern walk-thru of the new Jackson Kayak Flow. The Jackson Kayak Flow was designed with the goal of modernizing the River Running Creek Boat for all skill levels.
After the success of the Gnarvana the core design team implemented some of their most loved features into a shorter lighter package while preserving the true nature of a River Runner. The perfect combination of confidence where you need it, and sportiness when you want it.
Jackson have a new boat out, the Jackson Kayak Flow.

Recently I got to tryout Pyranha’s latest river-play half slice, the Firecracker.
The Firecracker has been hotly awaited since it was first announced at the Paddle Sports Show back in 2022. There were lots of questions about the boat and how it sat within Pyranha’s line up, not least how it stacked up against the Ripper and Ripper 2. It’s fair to say it split opinion between those who were struggling to see the point of it, and those who were really looking forward to it. I have to admit I was on the more sceptical end of things.Continue reading
One boat to the rule them all. That is how Set are billing the new Ninja.
ONE BOAT TO RULE THEM ALL!!!
A boat that transcends genera and style. A boat 5 years in the making. A boat that will unlock your inner river, NINJA!
Sweet lines, Good times, High performance
If you’re looking for one boat that does it all, then look no further than the Zet Ninja. Our most versatile creek boat yet. The brainchild of extreme paddler Honza Choutka, the Zet Ninja is the boat to use when the rivers are steep and technical, when you want to win races or when you just want to have some fun throwing it down while mashing through rowdy bits in complete control.
The Zet Ninja has taken more than 5 years to develop and has been tested by numerous world-class paddlers. It has excellent stability in squirrely water and features a fast, nimble planing hull. Its progressive bow makes it smooth to boof and skips over the top of different river features. Just the right amount of stern rocker makes stern squirts possible and horizontal and vertical eddy turns easy. The Zet Ninja is fast and fun. It will make you feel just like the river ninja, you know you are.Zet Kayaks
